Why work here at Rio Tinto

Come grow with us

From underground miners to data scientists, we want you to bring your hard work, dedication and outside-the-box thinking here. At Rio Tinto, you can have a challenging, flexible and rewarding career that takes you exactly where you want to go.

Every voice matters

We are committed to an inclusive environment where people feel comfortable to be themselves. We want our people to feel that all voices are heard, all cultures respected and that a variety of perspectives are not only welcome – they are essential to our success. We treat each other fairly and with dignity regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, age, sexual orientation or anything else that makes us different.

We also aim for a diverse workplace – not just because it is good for our business, but because it is the right thing to do. We are not where we want to be on gender diversity, so we have established clear targets to improve the number of women in our organisation, at all levels. We have gender-neutral parental leave in all countries in which we operate and our policy on inclusion and diversity reinforces our expectations around behaviours and personal accountability. We set ambitious goals to increase our diversity year on year.

    “My first visit to site and I got on the cage to go underground and I had to go down deep. As soon we’d reached the floor and we walked out of the vent doors, I looked around and said, ‘Yup. This is it. Mining is cool. This is where I want to be.’”

    Claudia is inspiring the next generation to enter a field that a few short years ago did not exist: “It’s so exciting for me to get the opportunity to go back and be a mentor at the RoboCup Junior competition. Getting to see the next generation of mechatronics and robotics engineers – it feels like I’ve come full circle.”
