FAQ

What should I bring for my interview?

You will need to bring proof of your identity to your interview with the Hiring Manager. If you do not have a passport, you may bring an alternative document such as a biometric residence permit, driving licence photocard, birth certificate or adoption certificate. If you’re not sure, please contact our team for advice: skills@serco.com

Where will my apprenticeship be located?

What will my working hours be?

Your exact working hours will be determined by your new manager, but usually full-time apprentice roles are 37 hours per week, from Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm.

Will I gain a qualification as part of my apprenticeship?

If this is the case, any travel required for your role will be covered by Serco’s travel policy.
