Serco graduate programme

Serco offers an amazing launchpad for a fast-track management career and the unique opportunity for you to get directly involved in solving some of the real and pressing challenges of delivering essential public services. You will have a commercial mind-set, a strong sense of purpose and the will to make a difference.

With a supportive team around you, you will be encouraged to use your initiative, take on important responsibilities and gain practical operational experience working at the frontline on one of our important contracts.

You will be given the autonomy and the tools to dictate your own growth and innovate. And you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are making an important personal contribution to delivering services that impact people’s lives.

Our two-year graduate programme will expose you to a range of multi-sector operational roles and environments, giving you the foundations to become an exceptional manager.

On day one, you might find yourself working in one of our many contracts learning about public services and our frontline operations. Two years later you could find yourself leading a team of people, running operations, supporting the delivery of a bid or driving innovation and change in one of our contracts.

Join us to make a difference every day and take pride in what you do.
