At Sandvik, we recognise that we are strengthened by diversity. We are committed to providing a work environment in which everyone is included, treated fairly and with respect. We are an Equal Opportunity employer and we encourage applications from women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

"I joined Sandvik in 2010 as the Marketing and Communications Officer, after living and working in the UK for several years. At the time, I knew very little about the mining and construction – yet I quickly fell in love with my role, the industry and the company’s core values. I’ve since held a variety of roles and my work has taken me to Sweden, Japan, Korea, India and Copenhagen – which has been amazing. During my years with Sandvik, I also took time off to have my two daughters who are now aged 2 and 4. I feel fortunate that Sandvik continued to support my development during my maternity breaks and also continue to offer much needed flexibility whilst my children are so young. More recently, I’ve been promoted to the role of Sustainable Business, Marketing and Communications Manager and sit on the Executive Management team. We have an extensive sustainability agenda, designed to ensure that our operations and that of our customers’ run in a sustainable way – which makes me really proud! "

To achieve this we always act in line with our high ethical standards, putting safety first and always showing consideration for the environment and the communities in which we operate. The safety and well-being of our employees and the environment are our core values. Finally, we care about others and build relationships based on honesty, respect and trust.

"I joined Sandvik in January 2019 as an Assistant Accountant. At that time my daughter was 6-month-old and my son just started school. I thought it would be quite challenging to juggle between professional and personal life. But through the mentorship and flexibility I received from both my managers, I was able to grow in my career and was also able to progress in my CPA professional studies. "
