How To Spot a Potential Job Scam

Vale regularly posts career opportunities in different countries and regions. To check them out, click here. On our page about job opportunities, you can submit your resume to our database or apply for a specific position. Applying for a job at Vale is quick, easy and free of charge.

When job opportunities are available, they are posted on our website and social media or disclosed by the partners for consultancy services. If you receive any information about opportunities in our company and are not sure about the veracity, please follow the guidance below to protect yourself from a potential scam:

  • Always check the source of the information. Is it from a trusted company, person, or email?
  • If you're being contacted by a recruiter from Vale, or a subsidiary of the company, the email will come from "@vale.com" and not from a personal email address, such as Gmail.
  • Be wary of unsolicited job offers and of messages containing spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes.
  • Vale will never conduct an interview via email or through text messages. Be aware of messages stating otherwise.
  • As part of our hiring process and before a formal offer is issued, a Vale representative will conduct a phone, virtual or in-person interview.
  • If any application fee or request to purchase equipment/software is required, it is a scam. Do not reply!
  • Visit Vale's page about job opportunities. If a role you're interested in is available, you can apply for it on the page.
  • Suspicious activities, scam attempts, and doubts about the partners for consultancy services or selection processes can be reported to us on our Contact Us page. To visit it click here.
