Women in Leadership

We aim to increase female representation amongst senior leaders to 35% by 2023 - and the Graduate Management Programme plays an important part in that

Serco has historically had an imbalance in its workforce, employing more men than women, particularly in our business units and operational and technical roles, along with lower representation of women in our senior management teams. Over recent years we have made good progress in addressing this imbalance and as part of our annual Gender Pay Report, we aim to increase female representation amongst senior leaders to 35% by 2023.

One of the ways we are helping to address this is through our annual Graduate Management Programme, which aims to develop future Leaders within our business. So in celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, the Graduate Team at Serco hosted a special ‘Women in Leadership’ event that shared guidance and advice to future leaders on how to develop their career. 

The event was joined by Sarah Burnett who - as well as having over 20 years of working in public service - is a senior Director within Serco and co-Chair of Serco Inspire, our internal network that provides female talent a platform to grow and develop. The event was hosted by Stacie Musgrove, Early Careers Manager for Serco UK, as well as two of our current Graduate Management Trainees, Hannah and Zahra.
