Connection over profile

That’s why we need your help. From young, committed talent, like you! Whether you are interested in research and development, sales, HR, production, IT or some other field, with us you get the chance to help shape your job from the start. Ladies, too, are more than welcome. Umicore aims to have 35% women at manager level. We are a good student here. We even have a specific Community to focus on female leadership, called Focus on women. Because we believe in equal opportunities, fairness and diversity. We recruit and promote based on the right qualifications for the work that needs to be done. So at our very first meetings, we always focus on an open discussion of your wishes and our corporate culture. First a good match, and then comes the rest.

Together for a cleaner world

Go to our event page to find out exactly what we do at every event and how to register. But one thing is certain: wherever you are, we welcome you with open arms to see how we can work together for a better and above all a cleaner world. A great example of this is the way Umicore and PowerCo, the Volkswagen group’s battery company, are investing three billion euros in a joint venture to produce battery materials in Europe. Ultimately, we aim to supply 2.2 million electric vehicles per year with batteries that use cathode materials for the six PowerCo battery plants. Batteries that will eventually be fitted in Volkswagen electric vehicles.
