Type of Organisation

Mining and Metals company

Employer Profile

Aluminium for lightweight cars. Copper to help things work

more efficiently – from renewables to the power in your home. Iron

ore for the steel in our electricity infrastructure. Lithium for electric

vehicles and battery storage. And many of the materials we

provide are used to make the things in everyday life too: like

borates that help crops grow and titanium for paint.


At Rio Tinto, we are finding better ways to provide the materials

the world needs.
