Working at Aurubis

Our employees are the basis of our success. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are now: in a leading position in the copper production sector.

We know that our employees ultimately enable us to keep production going 365 days year and to be better than the rest. And only satisfied and motivated employees can drive innovations and improvements. We therefore offer them an environment in which they can enthusiastically focus on their work at Aurubis with attractive compensation and extensive social benefits, but also a high occupational health and safety standard, frequent training and suitable work-life concepts.

Compensation and social benefits

You can expect a competitive salary and attractive social benefits in the entire Aurubis Group. We stay in regular contact with employee evaluations and development talks.

Occupational health and safety

Occupational safety has the highest priority throughout the Aurubis Group, with the goal of continuously improving working conditions.

Health protection is also very important to us. This includes ongoing health and hygiene discussion groups as well as active health management, which comprises contracts, medical care and prevention.

Family and work

We strive to find an individual solution for each employee to accommodate family life and work in a meaningful way.

Qualifications and professional development

Life-long learning is key at Aurubis, from interns and apprentices to managers. It is important for us to continue developing professionally and personally. Consequently, you won’t only learn on the job at Aurubis but will also be able to take advantage of targeted professional training. This extends from development programs for managers to technical training programs to keep our employees up-to-date at all levels.


Our culture

We value constructive and close cooperation. We developed common values for this purpose (spelling the word PRIMA, which means “great” in German):


These values shape the culture at Aurubis and are found in our Code of Conduct.

This Code of Conduct, which all employees receive, provides information about especially important areas of responsibility and outlines clear guidelines.

Issues that are particularly significant to us:

  • Fair working conditions
  • Environmental protection
  • Occupational health and safety


We derived leadership guidelines based on the PRIMA values. They describe the conduct that we expect from our managers:
Our interactions are characterized by open and honest communication. We support each other and act reliably and responsibly. Good performance is recognized and criticism is offered constructively.
Aurubis promotes the development of each individual and thinking outside the box.

Our managers have a special function as role models. One of their tasks is to ensure and monitor compliance with our policies. Within the scope of their leadership responsibility, each manager ensures that all employees in their division understand and observe the values, principles and regulations. Discussions with employees raise their awareness and encourage communication about these issues.


Qualified, committed and satisfied employees are the basis of our success.
