Expansion comes as FM and support services company commits to continued investment in training UAE nationals

Serco Middle East, the regional arm of the UK-based facilities management and support services provider, said it would continue to invest in the employment and development of Emiratis as part of its Al Masar Programme — launched in 2017 — that aims to provide UAE nationals with advanced leadership skills, with plans also in place to expand the training modules to Saudi Arabia by 2020. 

Serco was recently granted platinum membership in the UAE’s Tatween Programme, a scheme implemented by the country’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation to boost nationals' employment.

Commenting on the programme, chief executive officer of Serco Middle East, Phil Malem, said: “Serco is passionate about hiring, developing, and retaining UAE citizens, giving them fair and equal opportunity to fulfil their career ambitions.

"A lot of work has gone into building a greater presence of nationals in our organisation, particularly in leadership roles, with the intention of having the right leaders to operate and manage Serco’s Middle East business in the future."
