Life at Saint-Gobain

People matter to us, and we try to show that every day. As part of this, our aim is to create an enterprising and innovative working environment, where you have the opportunity to learn new skills, and develop your career. We want to be a business that you’ll be proud to work for; one that is committed to improving people’s daily life, being responsible, doing the right thing, and to preserving the environment by embedding sustainability in all our businesses.

We’re delighted that you may be considering a career at Saint-Gobain, but as well as knowing what we commit to as an employer, it is very important that you understand how we like to work, and therefore what is expected of you as an employee. You’ve probably heard it before, but we really do place a strong emphasis on hiring people that align well with these core principles and attitudes.

Our Principles of Conduct and Action underpin everything we do; they’re the foundation of how we do business responsibly. Building upon these principles, the Saint-Gobain Attitudes set a standard in the way we want to work in order to make a reality of our ambition; ‘to help create great living places and improve daily life’.
