Going from trainee to Area Manager in four years isn’t easy, but Enterprise provided me with the support structure that enabled me to thrive. It all boils down to the company’s attitude to progression: if you’re ready to embrace the opportunities given to you, Enterprise will help you succeed.
I’ve taken two years of maternity leave since joining Enterprise on the graduate programme. But it hasn’t slowed my career progression one bit. Find out how Enterprise gave me the opportunity to have a great career without sacrificing family.
I knew that I wanted the chance to contribute to the business and be appreciated by those around me during my placement year. Eight months in and I am still being surprised by the opportunities that I am being given.
While at Enterprise, I took advantage of the opportunities I created for myself: moving up the career ladder by working across departments, as well as move across the country. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my family. This is how I did it.
My motto throughout my personal life and career has always been “Yes I am a woman…and what?” “Yes I am Sikh…and what?” Enterprise has continued this for me as nothing has ever stepped in my way or stopped me from getting where I want to be.
I first considered a career with Enterprise Rent-A-Car during my final year of university, when I was encouraged to apply for a ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ prize, which the company was sponsoring.
