Our people are fundamental to our success.

At South32 we support everyone to be the best they can be every day.

Together we create an inclusive workplace where we hold ourselves and each other to account to demonstrate Our Values.

We ensure all work is well designed and reliably delivers safe outcomes, with a focus on continuously improving and learning.


We want our people to reflect the countries and communities we operate in. We are committed to establishing an inclusive workplace by setting ambitious diversity targets, focusing on gender and ethnicity.

To achieve this, we are:

  • Campaigning to attract female and indigenous applicants, particularly in core disciplines such as engineering
  • Implementing flexible work arrangements
  • Educating our leaders on how to manage a diverse workforce and to recognise unconscious bias
  • Allocating additional funds to decrease the gender pay gap.
