“After a long career as a Navy Supply Officer, culminating in my appointment as the ADF’s Chief of Joint Logistics, I was very pleased to be able to smoothly transition to a new career with Serco.
Serco has developed HR policies that give positive benefits to the recruitment and employment of veterans, Reservists and souses of ADF members. And Serco, like the ADF, promotes a strong values based culture focusing of care, trust, innovation and pride. I’m very proud of my ADF service and I’m now Serco and proud.” – Clint Thomas, Serco.
