As an employee owned and proudly independent company our founding purpose has always been to create technically fulfilling and financially rewarding careers for everyone who works for P&C

As we have grown and expanded over the years, this philosophy has become an integral part of how we approach everything and all that we stand for.

Life at Paterson & Cooke and our focus on the people that make up this business aligns with our core values of integrity, passion, excellence, responsibility, and accountability.

Our environment empowers individuals to grow while working on complex projects. This includes opportunities to support clients on site, attend world class training, and secondment opportunities within other P&C offices. Where and how far you go is up to you!


To be a part of Life at Paterson & Cooke

#1 Global Opportunities

We have nine offices across five continents providing services to top blue chip global mining companies. This provides opportunities for employees to work on world class engineering projects in the mining industry and travel the world.

# 2 Learn and shape your future

An appetite for learning is a key characteristic of everyone working for P&C. There are many opportunities for knowledge sharing and professional development both locally and globally. This allows people to plan their own professional development and pursue areas of interest.

#3 Flexibility to work your way

While employees are expected to work hard and deliver on their objectives, at P&C we encourage a working environment that facilitates a healthy work-life balance. Flexible working hours, hybrid working and an agile working environment ensures that employees can drive their own professional development in the most suitable conditions.

We have a world-class team of experts who are all specialists in their respective fields. You will belong to this incredible network of people who continue to learn from each other and share their knowledge and expertise with the most junior people in the business.

People are the heart of our business, and our dynamic workplace encourages teamwork and collaboration. We are a collective of diverse thinkers and doers and every employee is empowered to showcase their skills and bring their unique perspectives.

#6 Employee Owned

We pride ourselves on the fact that the company is wholly owned by employee shareholders. This is another reason to believe that at P&C, everyone’s opinion counts.
