People are our most valued resource at Volcafe. We believe coffee is all about relationships, and our people bring this business to life. Our ambition is to be the world's best coffee partner, and part of how we will achieve that is by continually striving to be a great place to work.
Volcafe shares the values of our parent company, ED&F Man Commodities – Respect, Integrity, Meritocracy, Client Focus, and Entrepreneurship – and we seek to integrate these in all of work.
We are passionate about coffee and it shows. Many of our offices hold daily cuppings. Our field staff take pride in supporting coffee farmers, often sharing photos of the first coffee blossoms or a branchful of ripe red coffee cherries. More than a few of us are keen home roasters, too.
Equity, diversity and inclusion are ingrained in our culture, both for our own workplace and for our work in the coffee-growing communities that are the foundation of our business.
We are a multicultural workplace, with team members from diverse origins and identities. Our company values emphasise respect, and we are continuously seeking to make our workplace an inclusive environment where our people can be themselves.
We value our colleagues' career development, offering mentorship and traineeship programmes that support them to grow and progress within our business.
We have a strong track record of promoting internally and enabling staff to transfer among our offices and locations, wherever possible.
