We are striving to build a Nordgold culture in which about 7,800 of our people, regardless of which operation they are engaged in, identify with each other as part of a team welded together with a common purpose.
As an employer, we bear the responsibility of ensuring the safety of our employees and providing a stable way of life. We want our people to be confident about their future. Fair rewards, career progression opportunities and a safe working environment are some of the fundamental rights that we believe all our people deserve as we recruit and retain the best talent in the mining industry.
About 7,800 employees
Nordgold is a complex organization, spread across diverse geographies and cultural environments. This makes it particularly important that we have a shared set of values which are the following:
Respect for people
Professionalism and efficiency
Trust and collaboration
We seek to be an employer of choice in the communities in which we operate. We want our people to realise their potential in conditions which are both comfortable and safe. That is why we pay a lot of attention to recruitment, managing and developing our people.
Attracting and retaining the right people is vital to the success of our company.
We make our interviewing and evaluation processes fully objective and transparent for all participants
We aim to pay salaries that are in line with or ahead of the market, and use bonuses and other retention payments to incentivise and retain key staff.
We look to employ local people where possible.
We do employ expatriates where they have the best skills and are able to train our people and pass on their knowledge
