Meet our graduates
Hear from some of our current graduates about their experiences on the Serco Graduate Program.
Jasmin (2020-21 cohort)
From day one it’s apparent that Serco genuinely values the graduates, supporting us to succeed and providing tailored professional and personal development. The Serco Graduate Program initially appealed to me as something different and unique - I honestly couldn’t be happier with my decision. As a graduate I’ve been given the opportunity to make a real and positive contribution, as well as unparalleled support, encouragement and mentoring from my colleagues.
Serco really stands out as a brilliant platform for early career growth. Don’t be afraid to explore something less traditional and outside of your comfort zone – you’ll be rewarded.
Erica (2020-21 cohort)
I was initially drawn to Serco because I wanted the opportunity to have a real impact through my work. Straight out of university, it can be tempting to seize any job opportunity for the sake of security, but Serco’s Graduate Program really stood out because of its emphasis on making a difference to people and communities. The best part of my Serco experience so far has been the support I’ve received from my placement manager and exposure to such an exciting mix of projects. No two days are the same!
Every day, I am surrounded by brilliant, creative people driven by an underlying commitment to making positive change. Serco’s Graduate Program offers a challenging, rewarding and always interesting start to your career.
Madeleine (2020-21 cohort)
I really appreciate the amount of trust and freedom we’ve been given to solve problems and produce work – it’s allowing us to demonstrate our personal potential. We’ve been encouraged to think strategically and form our own opinions. While this has been at times daunting, I appreciate these have been opportunities to grow. That it was important to Serco get to know each graduate applicant as a person throughout the recruitment was evident in the care demonstrated by anyone we met or spoke with. Care is such a key part of the culture here.
Serco is looking for grads to help build the future of the company - we’ve been encouraged to contribute from the beginning and express our ideas. The ability to work on real projects while being supported in our learning means we’re appreciated as equal members of the team.
Matthew (2020-21 cohort)
We’ve had incredible exposure to the most senior leaders of our organisation. The opportunity to attend Business Lifecyle Review meetings has allowed me to observe and learn from senior business leaders in exploring, testing and shaping the business strategy. The opportunities for numerous site visits have also been incredibly helpful in developing my understanding of the broader business, whilst also offering invaluable opportunities for additional networking within the organisation and beyond.
My placement manager is exceptionally accomplished and well respected, and her guidance and coaching has been incredibly insightful and rewarding. Her strong work ethic and ability to get things done has been eye-opening for me and she has served as a great mentor to my early career.
Ryan (2020-21 cohort)
I am extremely grateful and proud to be undertaking Serco’s Graduate Program. Your development is accelerated at a rate my graduate peers working elsewhere suggest is unmatched. The program provides exposure to different sectors as well as varied challenges faced by government in providing community services. It’s a unique organisational environment affording a breadth of opportunity not found elsewhere. The entrepreneurial nature of Serco’s culture has given me a sense of personal freedom in how I approach my work, leaving you feeling your contribution is both professionally and personally rewarding.
