We are hiring

At ResponsibleSteel, we believe in our mission to maximise steel’s contribution to a sustainable society. This can be done by achieving net zero carbon emissions for the steel sector as well as enhancing the responsible sourcing, production, use and recycling of steel.

We are a not-for-profit multi-stakeholder organisation with charitable status that has been founded to bring together business, civil society, and downstream users of steel, to provide a global standard and certification initiative for steel. We have built a consensus on what sustainability looks like for steel – including the impacts of mining, steel production, the scrap metal supply chain, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, workers’ rights, communities and biodiversity. Our Members include steel makers, mining companies, buyers of steel from automotive and construction as well as civil society organisations focused on labour rights, biodiversity, climate change and many other important issues. We currently have over 100 members and near 12% of global steel production in membership.

Our people are at the heart of what we do and are our greatest asset. They deliver our success as an organisation through a combination of their professionalism, commitment, and the way they work together.

You would be part of shaping a growing organisation. We are recruiting for colleagues that embrace our ambition and commitment and will benefit from our support to your learning and career development.
