No one graduates from university with the dream of renting cars, so why would you consider applying for the Enterprise Graduate Programme? Try these reasons for size:
1. It’s a fast track to management
When people join our award-winning Management Training Programme, we empower them to start contributing right from the word go. It helps that we are divided up into smaller, local branches, so those that join our Graduate Programme gain the skills and experience needed to run their own business in as little as two years.
2. We’re the largest mobility provider in the world
We manage the largest and most diverse privately owned fleet in the world – with more than 1.85 million vehicles. Our global network operates in over 90 countries and territories and our nearly $23.9 billion revenues place us No. 12 on the Forbes list of largest privately held companies.
3. It’s so much more than renting cars
As a Graduate Management Trainee, you are empowered to make business decisions that greatly affect your career as well as the bottom line. You’ll gain responsibility for developing new business and maintaining current relationships. You’ll be responsible for understanding cost control, reading your branch’s P&L statement, offering exceptional customer service and understanding what it takes to run a multimillion-pound business. It just so happens that cars, and other modes of transport, are the products that we offer our customers
4. We hire for potential
Regardless of your socio-economic background, university attended, subject studied, and degree attained, Enterprise will always look at how you perform against our competencies and will judge you on that alone.
5. We’ll develop your skills
We will teach you how to effectively communicate, influence, and interact with all types of customers, vendors, and colleagues. You’ll learn sales techniques, problem-solving strategies and conflict management. Those skills will provide you with the opportunity to market to local business partners and build solid, long-lasting relationships with key business decision makers. In your development to become a successful manager at Enterprise, you’ll learn how to mentor, train, develop, manage and promote staff of your own. In turn, we’ll reward your development with pay increases and opportunities for continued promotions.
6. We promote based on performance
Because we have a promote-from-within philosophy, the sky is the limit at Enterprise. What does that mean? It means that most people that join us do so on the Graduate Management Training Programme, all progression opportunities are offered to our existing employees first, and all promotions are based on merit. Our current CEO, Chrissy Taylor, started on the Management Training Programme!
7. We live by our mission and founding values
There are lots of things to consider when looking for your first graduate job. But choosing to work for a company whose values align with yours should be high on your priority list. Enterprise is family-owned company and our founding values are instilled in all those that work here. We build connections. One customer. One business relationship. One co-worker at a time.
8. We’re a fun and friendly place where teamwork rules
Decades after he stepped down from day-to-day management, our founder Jack Taylor was still greeting employees with the question, “Are you having fun?” Because that’s how our teams grow – having a good time while working together toward a common goal.
9. Our doors are open
Here at Enterprise, we recognise that no two people share the same combination of background, culture, abilities, and values – just like the communities we serve. We make a point to hire locally and ensure our employees reflect the communities in which we do business. We want you to come to work each day and add value in the way that only you can. We put a high value on diversity and strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can be their best.
We are proud that this commitment has been recognised: we have been included in The Times list of Top 50 Employers for Women for sixteen years running, as well as Stonewall’s index of Top 100 employers for LGBT inclusion in the workplace. We have also been recognised as a Disability Confident Leader, included in the Social Mobility Employer Index and named a Race Equality Responsible Business Champion by BITC.
10. Stability in these challenging times
Enterprise is still family-owned – our CEO Chrissy Taylor is the third generation of the Taylor family to run the company. This allows us to look forward even more confidently to the future, providing the stability we need to pursue the long-term good for our business, our employees and our customers, even in these challenging times.
What are you waiting for? Join Enterprise on our Graduate Programme and become one of the new generation helping us write the next chapter of our success story.
