About Glencore

  • Mining, Oil & Gas
  • Transport & Logistics

We are Glencore, one of the world’s largest globally diversified natural resource companies.

Founded in the 1970’s as a trading company, we have grown to become a major producer and marketer of commodities – employing people all around the world.

Our operations comprise around 150 mining and metallurgical sites, oil production assets and agricultural facilities. Using our sector knowledge and global supply base, we source and market commodities to industrial consumers who need them – such as steel-makers, vehicle manufacturers, power companies and processors of oil and food. In this way, we produce and market resources that play an essential role in modern life.

People are at the heart of our business. That’s why we prioritise safety at all our assets; why we seek to minimise our impacts on the environment and communities; and why we aim to attract employees who strive to be leaders in their field.
