A purposeful job, where your efforts help ensure the sustainable food supply of the future.

The world population is growing, and with it the need for food. On top of this, we have to grow food in a climate-proof way. Yara is working on solutions to this with 17,000 colleagues in 60 countries. Solutions that drive change.

As an Engineer at Yara Sluiskil, you help make our products and processes safer, more reliable and more sustainable. You develop solutions and control how they are executed. You reduce emissions by working on sustainable innovations: from modernising our factory processes to developing fossil-free fertilisers and green ammonia, the fuel of the future.

Yara offers ample opportunities to develop your skills in a global setting where there’s plenty of expert knowledge about the food industry. In short: a job where sustainability is a priority in a social company with a major impact.
