Values and culture

Fairtrade has a vision of a world in which justice and sustainable development are at the heart of trade and business so that everyone, through their work, can maintain a decent and dignified livelihood.

It is a vision that our staff and partners are passionate about and focused on working to achieve.  We believe in fairness, integrity and transparency in everything that is done in our name. But we are also determined to stand up and challenge an international trade status quo that is increasingly leaving millions of workers and farmers below the poverty line and struggling to provide for themselves, their families and their communities.

We want to be creative and innovative as we try to provide answers to the issues of sustainable development for marginalized producers and the inequalities of the international trade system.

We want to be strong in what we say, the action we take and how we lead as we offer alternatives to the current system. It's about offering inspiring solutions, being optimistic about what can be achieved and unlocking potential.

And we want our staff to share those values and be the voice of Fairtrade and the people we work with. We believe that everyone who works with us, no matter what their role or which country they are in, has a part to play in working towards our vision.

If you share that vision, come and join us.
