Today, Arkema is a global innovator and a leader in its markets, thanks to its people, their development, and their everyday involvement.
By joining us, you will become part of a company that values its talents.
The profiles we are looking for
The possibilities available to you are vast. We recruit entry-level, experienced, and expert profiles.
We hired 322 people on permanent contracts in 2020 in France.
We offer more than 200 jobs in various fields, such as research and development, processes, manufacturing, finance, marketing, and human resources.
The values we stand for
We base our global strategy and everyday operations on strong values and principles:
Individual talent is little or nothing without collective strength. And solidarity is one of Arkema’s great strengths. It is the foundation of One Arkema. Knowing how to work as a team without butting egos but listening to each other, is vital.
Performance is the cornerstone of any business. Arkema is very demanding in this area. Financial performance and operational performance, of course, but also a more qualitative and collective performance. Performance means excellence. It also evokes the performance of our materials.
This is the contract of trust. The ability to know how to delegate and to be convinced that each person, whatever their level, can and must make a difference.
Simplicity is a way of being, a state of mind. It means remaining humble and knowing how to question oneself. It is a particular way of operating, all the more important in today’s complex world. It’s knowing how to manage your priorities and go straight to the essentials, presenting things simply so as to encourage agility and efficiency.
The social role of the company is increasingly evident. And it cannot just stop at the company’s doorstep. It includes all stakeholders. Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand. We must be exemplary in this area. Everyone must be involved, because diversity is an essential asset for the Group to achieve its ambitions.
