We are changing with the world. Be part of our evolution.

We increasingly seek to highlight and leverage talent in its most diverse forms, which will be an essential part of our process of cultural transformation. In 2022, the possibilities we offer for recent graduates are the Engineering and Geology Specialist Trainee and Global Trainee Program.

All interested people can choose between these two options to start a successful career and expand their knowledge in a company that thinks about a different tomorrow.

How it works

Our selection process does not require previous experience, has no age limit and graduates from any university recognized by the MEC are accepted.

If the chosen person is allocated in another city or state, we offer relocation and mobility benefits (including dependents). Anyone interested doesn’t need to know anything about mining either, everything will be taught during the program.

Vale is the second most desirable company to work for in Brazil

Inclusion purpose

We want to create even more opportunities, strengthen and retain the female presence in the mining industry.

We have a commitment to gender equality and, therefore, 50% of trainee vacancies will preferably be allocated to women. We also want to increase the representation of minority groups in leadership positions in our company and we encourage the participation of black women, black men, LGBTQIA+ and PCDs in the selection process.

We are present in 5 Brazilian states, spread over 4 different regions. Of course, we want to find potential talent across the entire national territory.

Among the group of trainees selected in 2022 in Brazil, 67% are female, 71% identified themselves as black (black or brown) and 49% are from the North and Northeast regions of Brazil. We want to increasingly value talents and encourage you, regardless of where you study or live, to be part of our transformation.

Selection process

Because we understand that diversity is an important agenda for our growth, our selection process will be carried out in a hidden way until the last stage.

Information such as age, educational institution, address and marital status are omitted during the selection process, in order to avoid judgment on the part of the person doing the evaluation.Our selection process is based on your assessment of potential and ability to perform in the future.

In order to make our process more accessible and inclusive , we chose to carry out the process fully online and remotely.

Our past is the greatest motivation for us to seek continuous and promising development, after all, we are not here to stand still – we are moving towards a better tomorrow.
