How Can We Help?

Why work at Senwes

We are

At Senwes, we are continuously reimagining our future as an agribusiness to expertly assist our clients, shareholders, business partners, staff and communities of impact to reimagine the boundaries of their success.

Over the course of 114 years, we have not only succeeded in reimagining the future of our business, but also that of the broader South African agricultural sector. Along this journey, Senwes has transcended its role as a mere catalyst of agricultural success to that of a proactive enabler of sustainability, growth and innovation within the fibre and food value chains.

As a business that is strategy-led and value-driven, Senwes embodies a vibrant / dynamic corporate culture which influences not only the choices we make on a daily basis, but also ultimately the results we achieve.

Since we understand that our values inform and drive our corporate culture, it is important for us to ensure that there is harmony between our employees’ personal values and that of the business.

The Values We Live by

Our actions are guided by these 6 core principles:

We do the right things for the right reasons, and place a high premium on ethical behaviour.

Our customers’ needs are central to all our business activities, and we continuously strive to address their needs in an effective and professional manner.

Driven to realise the company’s commitment to provide innovative and integrated solutions to our customers, enabling them to conduct their businesses successfully.

Striving to be creative, imaginative and resourceful in seeking solutions to business challenges and in meeting customer needs.

To act, at all times, in the best interest of the company and all its stakeholders.

Being responsive and accountable for our actions, committed to providing complete, truthful, accurate and timely information to all our stakeholders.
