Enterprise Rent-A-Car today announced that it is expanding the business in Ireland and is looking to hire 40 new full-time staff in the next few months. The company is also looking for a further 15 part-time positions and up to 30 intern positions. These roles are open to graduates of any discipline as Enterprise Rent-A-Car has an award-winning Graduate Management Training Programme and the company invests heavily in staff development.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland already employs 120 full-time staff and over 50 part-time workers in its 22 branches across Ireland. The company, part of the global Enterprise Rent-A-Car Group, has a ‘promote from within’ culture, which means that the company’s full-time employees all start out in the Management Training Programme. This allows everyone to learn the Enterprise business from the ground up and to understand how they each play a significant role in seeing it succeed.
George O’Connor, Managing Director of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland, said: “When we started Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland 16 years ago, primarily working with the insurance companies and the AA, there were just the two of us. We had about 10 cars in our fleet then. We are delighted, 16 years later, that we are continuing our expansion with year-on-year growth for the past number of years. We now have over 3,000 cars and vans on the road and we will employ 160 people by the end of the year in a full-time capacity.
“The business and the country has changed a lot in the past 16 years and Enterprise has listened to its customers and continued to be flexible – and in doing so has survived and grown through the recession. Our commercial fleet has also helped a lot of businesses continue to do business in Ireland in these tough years.
“We have the best sales and service teams in the country and we have the ‘Highest in Car Rental Customer Satisfaction’ according to JD Power & Associates in their annual survey. We delivered on our promise and we delivered on price and that has driven profitability for the company with double-digit growth in the last two years.”
