About AkzoNobel

AkzoNobel creates everyday essentials to make people's lives more liveable and inspiring. As a leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals, we supply essential ingredients, essential protection and essential color to industries and consumers worldwide.

We produce leading brands including Flexa, Sikkens, Alabastine and Jozo salt while serving four main end-user segments: Buildings & Infrastructure, Transportation, Consumer, and Industry.

Human Cities

All our beliefs and activities come together in our Human Cities initiative. By the 2050s, more than 75 percent of the world’s population will live in cities. With 60 percent of our products in the buildings, infrastructure and transportation end-user segments, AkzoNobel can play an important role in this transformation.

Transcending the purely functional we will make city life more energizing, inspiring and vibrant so that cities and their citizens connect on an emotional level. We are already helping cities worldwide to focus on color, heritage, transport, sport, education, and sustainability.

This makes AkzoNobel a great place to work and shape your own career if you've studied for instance Accounting, Economics, Finance, Marketing or Supply Chain.
