When looking for an internship, I must have looked at hundreds of different companies and what they offered in terms of training and development – yet none stood out as much as Enterprise. Enterprise was everything that I wanted; it was a management trainee scheme, there was huge scope for personal and career development, it was local to my university, and more importantly Enterprise’s values correlated directly with my own, making the decision to apply for the role incredibly easy!
“From the very first day, I was given the same amount of responsibility as a management trainee on the graduate scheme.”
From the very first day, I was given the same amount of responsibility as a management trainee on the graduate scheme. I was allocated my own personal accounts to manage as part of a business portfolio. On top of this I was given the responsibility of customer service captain as part of my development. These roles are integral to the successful running of the business; which as an intern was fantastic for both my own personal and career development.
I already have! Throughout my final year back at university, I’ve kept a close relationship with Enterprise by working as a Campus Brand Manager, as well as working part time on projects such as training and development of new employees and promoting women in management through diversity meetings. This has meant that I’ve not only returned back to Enterprise full time, but I was also lucky enough to be promoted straight away to assistant manager – before I even graduated!
It has to be the variety – every day is different! It’s this which keeps every day fresh, and ensures that you at no point clock watch. One day you could be providing great customer service within your branch, the next training and mentoring a new starter, and the next you could be out on a marketing lunch with your very own accounts. It’s this variety which ensures that you are learning new things, and having a great time doing it!
