Intern Program Overview
Serco’s Training and Experience Program (STEP) is designed to provide college students an internship opportunity to gain meaningful, hands-on work experience in a professional environment. STEP emphasizes developing the next generation’s workforce. Our goal is to build a roadmap that leads you to a long, rewarding and challenging career with Serco. We will work with you to determine your desired career path and the correct steps to get you to your goals.
Outside of gaining hands-on experience, you will attend training sessions taught by skilled leaders in our company. These training sessions range from finance, personality in the workplace, presentation skills, resume building, and more. In addition, Serco emphasizes being environmentally friendly and making a positive difference in the community. We challenge our interns to develop and execute on at least one group initiative that will benefit the office and/or local community. Projects in the past have included a park cleanup and a recycling drive.
This internship spans over 12 weeks—11 weeks worked with 1 week off for Fourth of July and half days on Fridays. You will work with your mentor to identify the best times for you to come in and leave work. You will work no more than an average of 36 hours a week.
Serco’s Office of General Counsel (OGC) is comprised of several distinct functional departments, including Legal, Ethics, Security, Export Compliance, Quality Assurance and Risk. OGC’s mission is to support the success of the organization by providing relevant and accurate guidance and counsel to ensure compliance with laws and regulations, mitigate risk and liability, and defend against all legal, security and administrative challenges.
You will report directly to the managers of the Legal department and Ethics department. You will also engage with Serco’s in-house attorneys, outside counsel and other legal professionals.
You will be responsible for the OGC’s procedure for responding to subpoenas and other requests for documents or information. These requests are often issued by an attorney or a judicial or administrative agency. You will be responsible for developing a formal, written, procedure manual to document this process and any process improvements or enhancements. In addition to your daily taskings, you will receive the opportunity to assist with special projects such as legal research assignments, assisting with litigation prep, document productions and other substantive legal work. This is a full submersive experience and will be extremely beneficial for someone hoping to pursue a career in law.
