The 2021-22 program opportunities

We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds to bring their own experience and make a difference in shaping and delivering public services.  Serco’s culture is distinguished by people who have: 

  • A genuine interest in delivering essential public services
  • An inclusive approach to collaborating and bringing others with you in delivering on our aims 
  • A commercial mindset, an entrepreneurial spirit and the will to make a difference
  • The drive and tenacity to make things happen through hard work and an appetite for continuous learning


The best ideas, the most practical adaptations, the simplest of adjustments and the stark realities of what is and isn’t working are so often held within the front line of any business. We are passionate about continuously improving our business and are focused on equipping our colleagues with the knowledge and skills to manage their operations in the most effective and efficient way.

We’re looking forward to welcoming our new graduates in Sydney and Melbourne who will move across a range of our frontline operations to appreciate first-hand the work we do and gain experience across the many different aspects and teams contributing to business outcomes, development of business strategies and innovation, leading people, and business governance. The wealth of new perspectives, experience and fresh thinking our graduates bring always presents a valuable opportunity to see ourselves through a different lens and discover new ways in which to grow and contribute mindfully as a private sector partner to governments, both as a business and as an employer.

Degrees: Business, Commerce, Finance, Arts, Government Relations, Public Administration
