The Role

Role Description

Summer intern


  1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  2. I truly enjoyed my three month summer internship in Cambridge with Enterprise Rent A Car. Firstly, the amount of exposure I received in terms of Marketing, running a business, finance was something I never imagined I would get from a three month internship. Secondly, everyone at Enterprise is very young, therefore, the work environment is extremely friendly and a very fun place to work.
