Wake up and
smell the coffee
If you have an idea that will grow our business, you will be encouraged to pursue it. Whether you want to help farmers improve their yields, take a product into a new country or help a customer solve a risk management problem, you’ll be in the driving seat. So if you can think globally, and generate ideas to make our business better, you’ll earn our support.
We’re the crucial link between farmers and producers and their markets. That’s why we have people in over 60 countries who know their customers inside out. So you could find yourself working with a Ugandan coffee trader, a Philippines sugar merchant or an equities broker from London. We value smart, talented people from all backgrounds.
Working here feels different. We’re a global organisation that encourages everyone in the company to take the initiative and make an impact – you will not just be a 'cog in a large machine'. We help each other reach our potential. ED&F Man’s employees hold the majority of shares; it’s our business. We encourage our people to respect each other, listen and ask questions, and help each other succeed – your efforts will directly benefit you and your colleagues.
We recognise each other’s differences, valuing the rich diversity of our workforce and our customers.
We create partnerships built on trust and champion fair, honest and responsible business practices.
We base career progression and reward on achievements and ability, not position or status.
We aim to exceed expectations by creating additional value and offering flexible commercial solutions.
We constantly seek ways to be more efficient and competitive, challenging the status quo.
