About Us…

Enterprise Rent-A-Car started in the US in 1957 as a small, family run business with 7 vehicles, we now have a turnover of over $19.4 billion, over a million vehicles on fleet, and employ more than 90,000 people across the UK, Ireland, Germany, USA, Canada, France and Spain.

Where can you go?

On the Enterprise Graduate Management Trainee Programme, you will join one of our branches and learn all the business necessary to run it as your own business. This gives you the chance to experience all areas, from sales and marketing to customer service and finance.  At Enterprise, 100% of our promotions are from within, so our Graduate Trainee Programme is the fast track into a diverse management career.  In as little as two years you could be running your own business, recruiting your own teams, and earning your share of the profits!

What makes the perfect Management Trainee?

At Enterprise you’ll need to be comfortable balancing business-minded entrepreneurialism with the empathy and care needed to understand and meet each and every customer’s requirements. If you are motivated by identifying and engaging with customers’ needs and can deliver new and creative approaches to attracting new business, then this is the business for you.

Along with an aptitude for sales, team work and ability to deliver excellent customer service, our team show genuine appreciation for the hard work of others. There’s nothing we love more than someone who can motivate the people around them while gaining the loyalty and support of a team through an inclusive and inspirational style of leadership.

Ask yourself – do I have a “yes” mentality? Am I driven by the desire to achieve results? If the answer to both these questions is yes, then a graduate career with Enterprise beckons.
