Meet some of our Global Graduates

Why did you join the Global Graduate Program and how the onboarding process looked like?

The Global Graduate Programme interested me when I was looking for a position following university for several reasons, but one stood to me the most; “hands on experience from day one” I think having a growth mindset is very important and the structure of the global graduate program with rotations and real-world projects was a perfect fit for supporting a lifelong pursuit of learning. Reading about the fast paced and challenging position was very interesting to me and I was ready for the challenge!

During the selection process I was of course nervous, just as in any interview. But for the Global Graduate Programme I was very impressed to meet so many senior leaders, including the Country Manager. The onboarding was a great experience having inductions with all departments giving me the opportunity to have a better insight on how BAT functions.

What is your difference that you are bringing to the organization?

The main difference that I contribute with is the diverse understanding of the different areas within finance. In this, my programme helped me a lot as I had an extremely well-structured program with several rotations around diverse fields of Finance. This gives a team a certain flexibility and resilience.

Additionally, I am lucky enough to come from an international background, as I am Italian, but I grew up in Hungary and lived in England for 5 years. Therefore, I add to the internal nature of the team.
