Are you ready to begin a stimulating and challenging career journey? Does the idea of collaborating with new people, living and working in new places and building your leadership and technical skills feel like the perfect next step for you?  If so, we’d like to tell you more about our Commercial Graduate Programme.


A FTSE 100 company and global leader in sustainable technologies, Johnson Matthey uses science to make the world cleaner and healthier. Over 93% of our sales come from technologies that benefit the environment and health, enhancing people’s lives on a global scale. 


Over the past two centuries we have built our reputation and place as a global leader through quality, integrity, and innovation – but that’s not enough.   We have ambitious plans for growth and need talented individuals to help shape and lead us into our next century.




Whether you have a technical or business background, we have a number of exciting opportunities to join the Commercial stream of our Graduate Programme in the UK.


You know that the world we operate in is changing – global competitors, increasingly complex buying processes, and multiple internal and external stakeholders are just a few of the challenges we face.  You'll recognise that we must keep innovating to meet customer needs while continuing to sustain our competitive advantage – so as a graduate on our Commercial career path you'll experience an early career that's customer focused and challenging. You'll have the opportunity to learn what we do across different commercial areas and industry sectors, helping to drive innovation and growth.


Our programme consists of three 8-month rotations in different locations within the UK and across business sectors.  Each placement will be carefully planned to develop your skills and understanding.  Developing highly transferable skills as you go, you could find yourself involved in:


Business development
A fundamental driver for our commercial teams and critical to our ambitious growth strategy; working with prestigious clients to maintain relationships and secure significant new contracts. Or you could be part of a team launching new products and services.


Market research
Gaining valuable insights into potential new markets and advising on sales and marketing strategy.


Driving commercial excellence
Becoming a commercial expert, making sure we share knowledge and best practice across JM and develop world class processes and business models.


Your learning will be underpinned by training and expertise from our experienced team of professionals and you'll be mentored by a Senior Commercial Manager or Director. Combined with your leadership training, you can expect to be incredibly well placed for an exciting and successful career at JM. 


We'll challenge you - but you'll be well rewarded. We offer a highly competitive salary and bonus structure coupled with market leading benefits.


Are you the ideal candidate?


You may have a relevant technical degree at Bachelor’s level or above (e.g. in Engineering, Materials Science etc.)  - at least a 2.1 – backed up by a strong academic track record.  Importantly you’ll need to be able to demonstrate why you’re interested in moving into a commercial role, and the broader abilities you can bring to help you succeed.


Or, you may have a 2.1 or above in a business/management/commercial/law based discipline.   In addition to your strong academic background, you’ll demonstrate an aptitude for science and technology – and a clear passion for applying your commercial skills in this field.
