Future-oriented employer

Our success rests on our employees’ performance. Protecting them from accidents and illness, supporting their individual skills, and creating an open, trusting work environment are important foundations for implementing our Group strategy.

Competent, productive, and enthusiastic employees form the basis of the Aurubis Group’s commercial success and further development. We have set the target of creating a work environment for good, close cooperation and promoting involvement and creativity.

We form a team that works toward the
company’s progress

Compliance with the internationally recognized core labor standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO) is of fundamental importance. Our Code of Conduct and the company values are the basis for working together at Aurubis and provide guidance for cooperation and responsible behavior.

Diversity and equal opportunity 

Our Aurubis Code of Conduct, the Aurubis Human Rights Commitment and the Aurubis Diversity Commitment serve as the basis for respectful and fair cooperation at Aurubis. For us, a diverse workforce is conducive to successful collaboration thanks to the knowledge transfer, good teamwork, and necessary inclusion of different opinions and viewpoints it fosters. It enables us to not only secure our commercial success, but expand on it as well.

We see diversity as composed of different dimensions, and understand it – among others – as cultural diversity and international representation coupled with a wide range of skills from our demographically diverse workforce. Every employee is encouraged to get involved, realize their full professional potential, and be part of our commercial success. We aspire to ensure that the course of every career, from the very first meeting on, is shaped by openness and freedom from discrimination, and that diversity dimensions such as origin, gender, religion or ideology, sexual identity or a disability must not play a role. We believe in the equality of all people, and see this as the only way to practice diversity.

Work-life balance and workplace flexibility

We offer our employees an attractive work environment and support them by offering options allowing them to establish a good work-life balance. In this regard, making working-time models more flexible and modern is of high importance.

Even though the legal and social parameters and the job requirements at the international Aurubis sites are very different in some cases, we address our employees’ individual needs wherever possible. For example, in Germany we have a flex-time model in place for administrative employees.

Compensation and benefits

Competitive salaries independent of gender, which are oriented to performance and qualifications, and comprehensive social services enhance our attractiveness as an employer and boost employee motivation. In addition to the base salary, we offer performance-related components and additional company benefits.


In order to achieve our company vision and advance our strategy, we rely on a learning organization. The ongoing individual development of our employees and sound training for young talents have high priority in this regard.

To secure qualified personnel in the long term, we regularly assess demand for specific skills and trades, and offer apprenticeships accordingly. We also identify the demand for employee qualifications and successors for different positions in annual performance appraisals and in the yearly personnel planning process in order to develop and expand specialized skills and management expertise in a purposeful way.

Our goal is to continue fostering digital and self-guided learning as well as innovative learning methods within the Group.
