Gain a place on our International Management Trainee Programme and you’d be forgiven if the success momentarily went to your head. Enterprise is the springboard to a brilliant management career in a world-leading company with a global turnover of more than £15 billion, so getting a little carried away at first is quite understandable.
Rest assured, the hard work and down-to-earth-colleagues in our company will keep your feet on the ground. You’ll spend 12-15 months in the UK or Ireland, learning everything you need to know about running your own branch then you'll be returning home to do exactly that. Excel, and the manager’s title could be yours within two years of joining us.
Here at Enterprise, we love to promote our people from within – 98% of our workforce started as management trainees – but there’s nothing automatic about this progression. It’s all about team work, hitting targets and tackling challenges together. It’s not always easy – but, more importantly, it’s never dull.
As a 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 and understanding what it takes to run a profitable business. You will also learn how to deliver superior customer service. We will teach you how to effectively communicate, influence, and interact with all types of customers, vendors, and colleagues. You’ll learn proper sales techniques, problem solving, 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 a staff of your own.
