 Enterprise Rent a Car

Enterprise Rent a Car logo

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has an annual turnover of more than $22.3 billion to a rental and leasing fleet of over 2 million vehicles spread across some 10,000 locations worldwide– a business that’s grown into the largest car rental company in the world.

Something else is for certain too – and that’s the fact that we owe our success to each and every one of our people, from senior managers to management trainees alike.

We firmly believe in empowering our people to make the decisions that will affect their work and their career. This philosophy, along with our unyielding commitment to customers, is what has made Enterprise a genuine success story and a truly special place to work.

Just imagine the possibilities that come with joining a huge, internationally successful company with a personal, entrepreneurial approach which allows individuals to stand out. Our secret lies in the fact that we’re divided up into thousands of smaller, local businesses. So when you take one of our graduate trainee jobs, you’ll be learning how to run the business yourself. And how many organisations with a $19 billion turnover can say that?

Our future is set to be a bright and rewarding one. Where we’ve come from is just as compelling though. Our website is all about who we are, how we got here and what we’re planning for tomorrow. After all, as a management trainee, you’ll be one of the new generation helping us get there.

All routes offer you the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. In return we need people who are resilient, willing to work hard, are quick to learn, and who, above all, are passionate about going the extra mile to help our clients.
