About us:


Hear from employees and graduates working at PCC

Precision Castparts Corporation (PCC) is owned by Berkshire Hathaway Corporation. Within PCC alone, we employ over 28,000 people at 164 locations in 15 countries (11 sites in the UK). We insist on quality, not just in materials and processes but also in the people we employ.

The MDP is our flagship graduate programme and our philosophy is very different to many others - we believe you will develop best by working on challenging, real projects and you will have immediate interface and exposure to senior leaders at our manufacturing sites.

You will have access to an outstanding support network, be assigned a mentor and despite our size, MDPs are recognised, respected and rewarded - with us, you will never just be a number or get lost in the crowd.

About Our Graduate Management Development Programme:

Our flagship programme (MDP) is designed to develop graduates who one day we want to see leading operations at one of our many UK or overseas manufacturing sites. In your first two years with us you will work on four 'live' assignments and be based at two of our 10 UK locations.

Joining the MDP, you have a solid base on which to build your career, the security of permanent employment, unrivalled exposure to the workings of our industry and enjoy continuous personal growth and development within one of the world's leading suppliers to the aerospace (civil and military) and power generation industries with annual sales of over $6 billion.

About You:

  • Achieved or be expected to achieve a good (2:1 or better) degree at BSc / BEng or at Master's level
  • Evidence of extracurricular success in leading and engaging people
  • Experienced employment (likely to be a summer placements/a year in industry) preferably within the manufacturing/engineering environment
