Our vacancies – CRONIMET


CRONIMET has been supplying raw materials for the stainless steel-producing industry for four decades. The family business has grown into a global company with around 1,600 employees in this important supply sector. CRONIMET is a worldwide specialist in stainless steel scrap, ferroalloys and primary metals. The company is now established on six continents with around 70 subsidiaries, partnerships and representative offices on the global procurement and sales markets for secondary raw materials. 


Our approach revolves around people – and their needs and wishes. We open doors and find solutions for careers that work with family life.


Sustainability is our business model – but we don’t stop there. We also use green electricity, have our own solar plants, set up energy initiatives and much more.


From a small business with 18 workers to a global company – despite all our successes, our hierarchies only exist on paper. Working together as equals is what we do and what we value.


Our company values – the foundations for everything that we represent.  They make us what we are, they guide us and they motivate us.

Start your career with us. Whether you join the recycling, IT or administration team, we promise you won’t get bored in a hurry. We have six different apprenticeships and three dual study programmes for you to choose from – as well as internships and taster days.


Work with us to conserve resources and play your part in a sustainable future.


Take a look at the many benefits that we offer our employees. The possibilities may vary depending on the location and role. 


We offer our staff nursery places in Karlsruhe, a 50% subsidy for nursery fees (max. 300 euros per child per month) and free online tutoring at all locations. You can even ask to bring your dog with you too.


Green electricity, our own solar power and free charging points for our employees’ electric cars – these are just a few examples of our sustainable approach.


Our employees receive special bonuses and a company pension scheme. We offer an attractive pay structure, partially covered by collective bargaining agreements. 


We offer flexible hours and remote working on two days a week, where possible. At most locations, the recycling team works in one or two shifts. As well as 30 days of holiday, we also offer staff the chance to bank their pay for a sabbatical.


Our staff receive structured and professional introductory training and support from job mentors who are there to help in the first days and answer any questions. We encourage staff to take advantage of opportunities for personal and professional development. 


Success should be celebrated. The Christmas party has a new theme each year. We get together in summer too and have an international football tournament with teams from our global locations. Our teams also meet regularly for discussions and team building.


We regularly take part in external sports events. Our staff in Karlsruhe keep fit with the company sports club and play table football or table tennis during breaks.


We offer a range of discounted food options in Karlsruhe – whether in our excellent company restaurant, from the breakfast trolley or at our own food stand. And, of course, we also have a fruit basket and free coffee and drinks.


Various schemes give our staff discounts on a range of platforms. Electronic goods, bicycles and e-bikes can be leased through the company at good prices using salary sacrifice.

Always in the loop – sustainability is at the core of our work at CRONIMET. This is of course evident from our metal scrap recycling activities, but social sustainability is also important for CRONIMET, and this determines how we treat our staff.

CRONIMET Envirotec GmbH

CRONIMET Envirotec GmbH provides a sustainable recycling solution for waste sludge, filter dust, filter cakes, powders, mill scale and similar industrial waste containing metals. This waste is processed at the Bitterfeld-Wolfen site in two plants that are unique in the world. By closing the raw materials loop, the CRONIMET Envirotec process with its vacuum distillation and high-strength briquette production represents a sustainable innovation – unlike other disposal methods. This enables a full recovery process, from the acceptance of (hazardous) waste and processing, through to recycling of the raw materials. The extracted materials can then be returned to the materials loop as recycled grinding oil, raw metal or alloys for foundries or steelworks, for example, or be used as landfill construction materials.
