Serco Al Masar Programme

An employer of choice for nationals

In 2017, we launched three new programmes in our Transport sector, aimed at engaging and developing national Emirati talent. In 2018, we expanded these across all sectors in our Middle East Division:

  • The Fursati Programme enables interns and graduates from local universities to gain practical experience through work placements across our business in the region.
  • The Qudrati Programme is an apprenticeship scheme to enable national graduates to train in specific skillsets not immediately available in the market, such as technical railway skills or air traffic control skills, and to then continue their careers with Serco in their chosen profession.
  • The Al Masar Programme focuses on accelerated career progression for high-potential talent through ‘fast-track’ development. Objectives include gaining a broader business perspective and better understanding of progression opportunities in Serco, development of leadership behaviours and building a strong network.
Platinum membership of the National Program for Emiratisation (Tawteen) by the UAE Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation (MOHRE)


In recognition of the contributions we are making to the national Emiratisation agenda – the meaningful and efficient employment of UAE citizens – we have been awarded Platinum membership of the National Program for Emiratisation (Tawteen) by the UAE Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation (MOHRE).

The Tawteen programme was introduced in 2017 and there are only a small number of companies who have been able to achieve this level of recognition. In addition, Serco is one of only two multinational companies with CEO representation on the MOHRE Emiratisation Board.

Serco has also been recognised as an employer of choice for UAE nationals by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development in the Middle East.
