Join us on our journey towards a smoke-free future.

Our business is undergoing a huge transformation, and we need ambitious, self-motivated people to help drive this change.

On our embark programme you’ll become an expert in our business, learning everything there is to know about sales, field operations, territory management and more.

We’ll give you the skills and tools you need to grow and develop with us, embarking on a new career with real progression potential.

The Opportunity

embark is our 18-month apprenticeship scheme, putting you at the centre of driving a smoke-free future for your local community.

You’ll need to effectively manage your own time as we give you the space you need to deliver outstanding results, backed up with training and support from an industry-leading, multinational organisation.

This unique, field-based and sales-focused role will give you the opportunity to experience a range of areas within our business – and earn a Level 4 Sales Executive HNC qualification. You’ll need to think on your feet, be able to educate and manage expectations of retailers, be determined to succeed and resilient enough to see it through.

Are you up for the Challenge?

We’re looking for candidates who are:
  • Motivated – you’re hungry to learn and develop your skills
  • Flexible – you’re open to change and adaptable across a variety of situation
  • Confident – with great communication skills and the ability to cultivate meaningful, positive relationships with both clients and colleagues
  • Collaborative – you’re an effective performer, both alone and as part of a team
  • Entrepreneurial – you’re a self-starter, know your strengths and know when to seek guidance

Whether it’s your first role, or a complete change of career – you can take this scheme and make it your own.

As long as you’re over the age of 18, and hungry to start an exciting career with a trusted global business, our PMI embark scheme could be right for you!

A large portion of the role is getting to know your local community, so if you’ve grown up in the area – or have a great working knowledge of it – you’re already well on your way to success.

We’re looking for people:

  • With a valid UK driving license (that you have held for a minimum of 1 year. Don’t worry – we’ll provide the car, but your license is essential)
  • Who are 18 or above
  • Who have attained a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 9–4/A*– C (or equivalent) including Maths and English

However, we’re more interested in your passion and drive than the qualifications you have previously completed, so we welcome applications from all academic backgrounds.

While we welcome applications from all nationalities, candidates must have the right to work in the UK and have experience of living/working in the local area. PMI doesn’t offer sponsorship for the embark apprenticeship programme.
