What is it like to work for Serco? Hear from our current cohort of graduates in their own words:
Adam - Studied Economics at Durham University
“I originally intended to pursue a career in Finance or Banking - and I applied to a number of companies - but what drew me to Serco were the people I met at the assessment centre and the broad range of experiences and challenges on offer.
My first placement in the business has been on the Caledonian Sleeper project. I’ve definitely been thrown into the deep end which has allowed me to strengthen my skillset. The support I’ve received from my line manager, a Director within the Transport services, has been invaluable and has allowed me to integrate quickly into the workplace. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to develop since joining and I’m looking forward to my next two placements in our Health and Maritime businesses.
As someone with a hearing impairment I am proud to work for a company that recognises the skills and potential that disabled people bring to the table. Organisations often talk a great deal about values but do little to justify their claims, but with Serco I have found a place where its values are understood and upheld by everyone in the company. The assessment day conveyed this brilliantly; I could tell from the outset that they really cared about us.”
Harveer - Studied History and International Relations at Trent University
“Before joining Serco I spent some time working on an NHS leadership programme within a care home. I’m hugely passionate about the health and social care sector so I knew I wanted to be part of company that is helping to change how it is perceived, administered and managed.
The entire assessment process was impressive as I saw how much time Serco invested in getting to know us as candidates and explaining to us it stands for and what it wants to do. I could see how what I want to achieve is aligned with Serco’s vision. So I was over the moon to be offered a place on the programme!
I have learned so much from joining the Serco graduate programme and there lots of opportunities here for the taking.”
Kuda - Studied Economics at Sheffield University
“Coming out of university I was keen to develop a career within public service, so one of the immediate attractions to Serco was its commitment to high quality public service – and that it offers career opportunities across the UK (and the world) and not just in London.
Serco is about people. This came through at every stage of the selection process and, even now, as part of the graduate programme I know that we are all interested in supporting and developing each other. I feel that they’re investing in me as a person and where I can best serve the company.”
