Graduate Management Trainee – Governance, Legal, Risk, Insurance and Assurance

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Be the one to make a difference every day

Here at Serco, our Graduate Management Trainee Programme offers you an amazing launchpad for a fast-track management career within a global FTSE 250 company - as well as a unique opportunity to be directly involved in delivering better public services.

On this programme you’ll work closely with our Directors of Enterprise Risk and Insurance, Deputy General Counsel and Deputy Company Secretary on a variety of interesting projects – with the aim of getting well acquainted with our key areas of Governance, Legal, Risk, Insurance and Assurance.

From day one you will be focussing on developing your capability to lead talented teams, build customer relationships, solve complex problems and communicate effectively. You’ll receive a wide range of training, including courses in Process Improvement, People Management, Change Management & Project Management. We’ll also work with you to identify further qualifications you may be interested in depending on your preferred career path.

With the support of your colleagues and senior managers, you’ll be given the autonomy and tools to innovate as you make a personal impact. And once you complete the programme you’ll be well prepared to take a role in which plays to your strengths and sets you up for a fantastic career.

What we are looking for

To be a future leader at Serco you must also have the following qualities:

  • A genuine interest in delivering essential public services
  • A customer centric service ethos and a commercial mind-set
  • An ability to show resilience and empathy in the face of adversity
  • An entrepreneurial spirit and the will to make a difference
  • The desire to learn, the tenacity to make things happen and the ambition to dictate your own progress, through hard work and self-development


As our one of Graduates you’ll be bringing your intellect, commercial mind-set, passion and ideas – and naturally a strong interest in governance, law, and risk.

With a business and a workforce as diverse as ours we’re not looking for a specific degree discipline, what’s more important is that you can bring your own personal experience to bear in helping us redesign and improve public services for the benefit of everyone.
