What type of benefits do you offer?

Our employees are important to us and we strive to provide a competitive benefit package that shows this commitment to their well-being. We have tried to provide plenty of flexibility so each employee can make the choices that best suit his or her current situation. Specifics of each employee’s benefit package will also depend on a variety of factors including job classification and location. Here is just a sample of what you may be eligible for in the US:

  • Health and life insurance
  • Supplemental life insurance
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Short- and long-term disability coverage
  • Sick Leave Benefits
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • 401(k) Plan with company match
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP)
  • Health and Fitness Club Reimbursement Program
  • Tuition assistance
  • Paid vacations and holidays
  • Some of these programs require contributions from the employee, but many are fully paid by the company. The above list is subject to change.

    Employees of non-U.S. operations are offered benefits commensurate with those offered by other employers in the area.

What's the best way to apply?

Using our online application system you can search for current vacancies, upload a file of your resume / CV and add attachments such as a cover letter. If we don’t have your ideal vacancy, then you can set up a job agent that will notify you by email when we do.

Please read the criteria carefully, we have tried to keep the job requirements as broad as possible but if we are asking for a certain attribute it means you would struggle to do the job without it.

We are looking for well-rounded people, so also include what you do outside work or study. For the MDP and FDP we are also looking for evidence of leadership potential and of making things happen through others, so please include suitable examples with your application.

Try to keep your resume short; to the point but with enough detail to give us taste of what you would like us to know about you.

Make sure we have your contact details. Our interview processes tend to move quickly, so make sure you give us an email address that you review daily.

By submitting an application, you are agreeing that your details may be held, processed and transferred, electronically or manually by or to any PCC entity (or third party working on their behalf) whether in the UK, Europe, US or elsewhere in order to process your application or advise you of future opportunities.
