Friday’s Featured Vacancy – 26/09/2014


It’s getting pretty busy here at UoC now! Next week, as well as the part-time jobs fairs (see here for more info), we will also have Enterprise rent-a-car coming to the Lancaster campus. This is a great opportunity to have a chat with Enterprise about their intern and graduate schemes. Come along to the Gateway building in Lancaster on Tuesday 20 September from 12.00 noon until 2.00 pm to find out more about this worldwide organisation.


Graduate Management Trainee – Enterprise Rent-a-Car

Join the Enterprise management training programme and following an initial classroom-based orientation session, you’ll be based in one of our branches, learning all the business skills you need to manage it yourself.

You’ll join us as a management trainee and develop skills in all areas, from sales and marketing to customer service and finance. So it really is a general management scheme.

Career progression

You’ll start off as a management trainee and in as little as eight to twelve months, you could move up to a management assistant. From there, in your next year, you’ll continue your training and you could become an assistant manager. That’s when you’ll receive a percentage of the profits generated by your branch, which means your earnings will be directly related to your performance.

Throughout our graduate programme, there’s a series of tests and evaluations, after which you’ll receive pay increases, rewards, and more opportunities for promotion. You’ll almost certainly be a branch manager within just two years of starting, and after all that it’s up to you how fast you move – there’s area manager, group rental manager, general manager and then you might take over the world! Well, we are a global company after all.
