Our ESG Report demonstrates the importance of working together and the impact that people and strong partnerships can make.

At Serica we pride ourselves on our inclusive culture and actively encourage people to get involved, be open and share their knowledge and experience. Our staff-led committees take the lead in community engagement, working with charities, schools and universities. We offer student placements and invest in developing our people and a world class apprenticeship scheme through Opito.

Investing in people development

We recognise the personal and professional value training and development brings. We actively encourage our people to take charge of their personal development with a generous training budget.


investment in training, apprenticeships and further education in 2023

We are a longstanding active member of OPITO’s Modern Apprenticeship Programme, supporting young people through this process and into fulfilling, long-term careers. Since 2018, we have supported 15 apprenticeships and have committed to 2 more in 2024. We have two representatives on the Opito Diversity and Inclusion Committee and participate in the selection process, supporting 27 interviews in 2023.

This committee promotes energy and STEM education in schools, universities, peer organisations and energy institutions. They also decided to support local schools and clubs with provision of learning and sporting equipment.

The education committee starts with supporting young people and finishes with developing our employees, engaging with many initiatives in between. It’s been a fantastic year for Serica and we are fully committed to delivering more

Charities & Fundraising

We encourage and help Serica staff to give back to their communities and this committee supports charities throughout our local communities and those with special meaning for our staff or contractors. As a company we focused our efforts on helping specific charities.

Throughout 2024 we’ll continue to support our local charities, food banks, and staff fundraisers. We have some exciting items already in the calendar such as the Yomp and Cycle challenge

Diversity & Inclusion

Our D&I strategy aims to develop a company culture that is inclusive and attracts diversity. As well as being the right thing to do, this benefits our organisation, bringing diversity of thought and experience to empower, educate and enrich our business. Our Equal Opportunities and Dignity at Work policy commits to providing equal opportunities to all employees or candidates, regardless of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, race, nationality or ethnic origin.

We work hard at instilling a collaborative and friendly culture, recognising the advantages of diversity and ensuring all voices are heard. On a personal level, I want to work in an organisation that sustains a happy and motivated workforce.
