Careers at Serco Middle East

With over 5,500 people working across our contracts in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Iraq, our people are making a difference everyday by supporting governments and large organisations in Defence, Transport, Healthcare, Justice and Immigration and Citizen Services.

An employer of choice for nationals

We offer numerous programmes to support the development of national talent across the Middle East division.

In recognition of the contributions we are making to the nationalisation agenda, we have been awarded Platinum membership of the National Program for Emiratisation (Tawteen) by the UAE Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation (MOHRE). 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.

Here are some of the programmes we have in place for nationals:

  • 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.

Women in Leadership

Our aim at Serco Middle East is to create a culture that is diverse and inclusive and we are proud to have 50% female representation on our Executive Leadership Team. By enabling and driving success for women in the workplace, we are able to bring together various leadership styles which results in better decision-making and more successful achievements of business objectives. A shift must take place if women are ultimately able to occupy more positions around the board room table. Our women in leadership initiative began as an effort to help make that shift. We share one interview per month to highlight one of our current or future female leaders.
