Your Career Choice

Finance

ITC operates a caderised Finance function that serves all its businesses.  The Finance function in ITC proactively partners the various businesses of ITC. The functional role is a dynamic amalgam of 3 distinct dimensions, namely, that of a Value Strategist, a Risk & Opportunity Manager and Service & Solution Provider. ITC's multi-business context provides opportunities for working in a wide range of business environments, enabling growth through professional development. A career in Finance offers you a range of challenging assignments across operational accounting, business planning and analytics, strategy evaluation, risk management, treasury management and commercial negotiations.

Post induction, candidates could be positioned either in one of the Company's varied businesses or Corporate Headquarters or in the Company's Internal Audit function. The posting could be anywhere in India depending upon the need, as the Company has units and business headquarters in metros, smaller towns and up country locations. During the course of one's career, the individual moves across several such locations.

In the business finance role, employees will be placed and rotated through operational roles both in the field (at manufacturing units/marketing offices) and Head Office. Opportunities for working on specific projects and in cross functional teams are also available so as to provide business exposure and to enable application of conceptual knowledge to business situations and hone leadership capability.

In ITC's Internal Audit, unlike in traditional audits, managers work in a live business environment and contribute to the effectiveness of management systems in a fast changing, dynamic set-up.  This period entails considerable travel and gives the individual a first-hand opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Company's business systems and strategies at work. After this stint the manager is positioned in one of the Company's businesses at any of the operating units spread across the country.

Your career in finance usually commences with being a member of the operational unit team or audit team with specific independent responsibilities. Based on performance and merit, you will in course of time, be entrusted with the leadership responsibility of heading the function in a unit or business area with a team reporting to you.

Jasraj's journey in ITC:

image of Jasraj GrewalI graduated in B.Com (Hons.) from St. Xavier's College, Kolkata completed my CA in year 2000. I joined ITC in 2003 and being a third generation Calcuttan I always aspired to work with ITC. The interview call opened a new chapter of my life, that I continue to live and cherish. The journey started with an Induction Programme across all businesses and thereafter I was posted in the Corporate Internal Audit, where I had the opportunity to review the processes and controls of close to 7 very different businesses across functions. An incredible opportunity to interact and put forward my recommendations to the senior management.

After a stint of two years traveling on audits across the country I was posted to Saharanpur. My wife was welcomed into the ITC family in the traditional manner. I worked as Assistant Commercial Manager responsible for Costing, Taxation and Books of Accounts of the 2nd largest cigarette factory in the country and a platform to work closely with different functions. I was part of the team to implement a higher version of an ERP and commence Exports from the factory. The experience taught me what I'd only read in books!!

Saharanpur has a very close and warm community and living in the Park is a great experience. I was the Honorary Treasurer of the Recreation Club. A perfect work life balance where you interact with all colleagues and their families, organise get-togethers, work and party hard.

After close to three and a half years I moved to a Head Office role at Kolkata. I was looking after Indirect Taxes and Modern Trade and was working closely with the best brains in the Company and in the country. I got the chance to be part of briefings to the senior counsels of the country. The Head Office stint of one year gave me much broader perspectives to look at issues and solutions.

Jasraj's thoughts on ITC as a Workplace:

My present profile is Finance Manager for the Trade Marketing & Distribution for Southern India. This role is an operational role involving both finance and logistics. I have a relatively big team spread over a huge geography reporting into me. This role has made me a Business Manager and with this role I have completed the entire Manufacturing to Sales cycle. It's exciting to deal with the day-to-day challenges and also applying strategic thinking to manage the growing businesses.

Jasraj believes ITC offers you:

The breadth of exposure in diverse roles ranging from Factory to Head Office to Marketing & Distribution helps expand your bandwidth. You are provided with autonomy and space to apply your mind to addressing both problems and opportunities.
