Join Swedish Match and Business Unit International in our vision to create a World Without Cigarettes

Cigarette smoking shortens the life of just over 6 million people annually. Smoking rates decline at a far too slow pace. In fact, so slow that tomorrow holds more smokers than todays´1.2 billion due to population growth. By outperforming the deadly cigarette with attractive and far less harmful products that attract smokers, we can create a better world. Our successes in Sweden and Norway, whose result is reflected in public health statistics, are far too good for us not to share with the rest of the world.

Therefore, we have created Business Unit International with the purpose to expand the Swedish Match smoke-free product portfolio footprint in Europe (ex Nordics), Asia, South America, Africa and Middle East. Our current priority is to rapidly make ZYN nicotine pouches available world-wide, buildup a strong commercial network and win the hearts and minds of the consumers. At the same time, we want to work in harmony with the trends of society and politics.

Are you looking for a truly international challenge and work in a diverse, dynamic and entrepreneurial FMCG team and have the opportunity to learn and grow while improving the public health, then we might have a spot for you!
