At CRU, our company culture is a fundamental part of how we work day to day. It drives our business forward, helping us meet our standards of excellence, achieve our objectives, and keep on growing.

At the heart of our culture is a strong set of company values which have shaped who we are today. We don’t just talk about our values, we see examples of them in our teams every day.

As a group we strive to work collaboratively and teams across functions support each other towards shared goals. We communicate openly, sharing knowledge and information around the business so that each team and each individual can succeed. We care about others doing well around us.

Commodities are a very dynamic sector that requires us to be flexible and adaptable. To succeed, we continually look for ways to add value to our customers and create efficiencies across our business operations. Every employee has a role to play in creating this environment of continuous improvement and innovation. 

Our core values of quality, integrity, team focus, customer focus and growth underpin our approach to both our customers and the people who work at CRU. As we evolve, we expect the individuals in our teams to grow with us.

  • Integrity

    We will respect and trust one another and our customers, allowing us to be adaptable as teams, and accountable to each other and our customers.
