After an initial classroom-based orientation session, you’ll be assigned to a branch office for hands-on business training. Here you will learn valuable business skills from capable mentors who were once in your shoes. That’s because nearly 100% of our full-time employees started as a graduate in our Management Training Programme, including our current CEO.

This allows everyone to learn our business from the ground up and to understand how they play a significant role in seeing it succeed. Our promote-from-within culture ensures that you’ll have a well-rounded training experience and learn skills in management, finance, operations, sales and customer service.

During your first year, you will actively participate in everything from sales to marketing and customer service to operations and finance. Along the way, we’ll give you plenty of opportunity to show your skills, and we’ll reward your development with pay increases and opportunities for continued promotions.

As you progress, increasingly more opportunities will become available to you. You can choose, as most people do, to continue your rewarding ascent within our Rental Operations managerial track. Then - in as little as two years - from joining as a graduate you could become a Branch Manager, in charge of your own team and your own profits. Or you can explore one of many other exciting options within Enterprise including Human Resources, Accounting, Corporate and National Marketing and more.

What is certain is that we encourage all of our employees to be the best they can be, and diversity is a priority in all areas of our business. We are proud to say we have been in The Times list of Top 50 Employers Where Women Want to Work since it was conceived thirteen years ago, and have been honoured with many other awards along the way.

  • 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 and understanding what it takes to run a profitable business.
  • You will also learn how to deliver exceptional customer service.

Benefits

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.

Additional Information
