Inspiring Careers

Moved by people

We have more than one hundred thousand employees around the world, from different cultures and with different backgrounds and professional experiences. Only through contributions from diverse perspectives will be able to evolve into a better Vale.

Here we work with projects that generate a positive impact for society, striving for excellence with innovation. This would not be possible, of course, without developing talent.

To understand exactly what it means to be Vale for each of us, hear the stories from our employees themselves.

I spend a few years with the commercial department in Rio de Janeiro and kept in constant contact with the overseas sales offices. (...) I started as an analyst and opportunities kept appearing. (...) When I was on maternity leave, I received an invitation to come to Singapore and take over Vale’s shipping department. I had a team in five countries, in Brazil and in Asia.

Vale’s Country Manager in Switzerland

The fact that Vale is a very large and diversified company, with a national and international reach, allows it to offer many opportunities in very different segments. I believe I really took advantage of this since I changed areas a lot and this allowed me to experience different careers within the same company. It’s great when you are able to move to a new role in which you can learn different things and have dialogue with new people. You clear out your backlog and start a new challenge.

I fell in love with the act of selling tickets. I love having contact with others. I don’t just sell a train ticket, I sell dreams. People come from everywhere to ride the train. There’s been people who came by train and cried, became emotional.

During my 15 years at Vale I have worked in Argentina and was invited to come live in Mozambique and Malaysia. Opportunities come up. Vale is a world. If you would like to grow, learn, and go beyond the role that you wish to perform, stay alert and open to changes.
