Serco MOU - May 2017
Serco Australia signs Memorandum of Understanding with Australian Defence Force
Serco Australia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Australian Defence Force (ADF), in support of Reservists across all of its Australian operations.
Rear Admiral Bruce Kafer, Head Reserve and Youth Division, said the purpose of the MOU was to formalise the relationship between Serco and the ADF and to further develop a mutual understanding and agree on terms for the employment of personnel who are members of both organisations.
"Reservists bring valuable life skills back to their civilian workplaces," Rear Admiral Kafer said.
"Reservists are highly disciplined team players with a 'can-do' work ethic and the confidence to accept responsibilities. In adding the experience and expertise they gain from their Defence service also helps in their civilian environment to shape them as better employees."
The signing of the MOU took place in Canberra; the signatories were Serco Asia Australia CEO Mark Irwin, and Rear Admiral Bruce Kafer.
Mark Irwin said "At Serco we have the utmost respect for the men and women of our armed forces and we are committed to supporting them. We are proud to have served the Australian Defence Force for more than 15 years and take our corporate responsibility very seriously. This MOU recognises our employees who contribute to the ADF and makes it easier for them to do so."
"I am pleased we have been able to formalise our commitment to Reservists through this MOU. Serco works closely with Defence personnel and we recognise the skill, commitment and talent they display in working life.
"Our values of trust, care, innovation and pride are jointly held by the Reservists we employ and as a Supportive Employer we are committed to these men and women who play such an important role in Australiaís Defence." said Mark.
