Why work for Serco?

“We are a vital interface between government and the private sector.  It’s demanding, yes, but it’s rewarding.  If you want experience; if you want to be part of a team that’s driving change and improvement; if you want to join a varied business that provides critical public services; this is the place.”

How do you succeed in Serco?

“Take risks.  Take on new challenges and learn fast.  Take control of your career and your own development.  Know what you want to achieve.  Trust yourself.  Be able to empathise with people from a wide range of backgrounds, whether they are colleagues or people who depend on our services.  Do not compromise on values, even when you are under pressure.”
