Join our award-winning Sales team

We’ve been working with tobacco since an Irishman called Tom Gallaher started wrapping cigarettes by hand to sell to customers in 1857. Gallaher grew to become the fifth-largest tobacco company in the world and in 2007, Japan Tobacco bought Gallaher for £9.4bn. Today, the UK is one of JTI’s top five markets and we sell some of the nation’s best-known brands.
