Jasmina Maliuha

Why did you join the Imperial Tobacco Ukraine team?

I joined the company in 2008 because it offered wide opportunities to develop and study a new dynamic sphere for me – trade marketing. Furthermore, Imperial Tobacco has a reputation as a responsible employer supporting active and motivated individuals. 

What is the largest attraction for you in your work for Imperial Tobacco?

Education and opportunities for uninterrupted professional self-development. The company is ready to help me in acquiring qualifications necessary for my career development and for the performance of my duties during the entire period of my work for the company.

Could you tell us about the coaching system and peer experience exchange?

I came to work for the company as a young specialist with little work experience and immediately realized that I would be working in an environment where exchanges of knowledge and experience aimed at helping other employees to achieve success was the fundamental principle of common work. It always helps me in my everyday work and in solving the difficult problems I face.

Are you planning to pursue an international career?

Of course I am, since our company offers wide opportunities for international career development. Work in different offices and countries means the acquisition of interesting experience – both professional and personal. Depending on the level of your skills and business needs worldwide, the company offers short- and long-term international projects as well as opportunities to work in different business areas and segments. Whatever country you work in, being part of Imperial Tobacco, you receive practical experience and can take part in the largest projects in the international markets. For instance, today I am a participant of a new international program, Grow East, which gives me the possibility to study marketing experience in East European countries and share information about the results of the work of the Ukrainian team.

How would you briefly describe Imperial Tobacco for those who would like to join it?

The company offers various programs and projects for career development, both on the local and international markets. They open up such exciting prospects that you don’t even dream of in the beginning. The company will give you a chance to work together with talented specialists from different countries worldwide, and you will be able to increase your qualification and professional level constantly to achieve new career heights.
