Lynne Mounsey - Northern England Human Resources Manager
University of Bradford students are "perfect for Enterprise's fast-paced, dynamic graduate business management programme," says Lynne Mounsey.
Enterprise Rent-a-Car runs management training programmes for graduates looking for "immediate responsibility, business training, and fantastic prospects".
The company has been working with us for more than eight years.
"We enjoy working with the University of Bradford as it provides us with access to a diverse talent pool of students from a variety of degree disciplines, who also have great employability skills gained from the many course-based and extracurricular opportunities offered on campus," Lynne says.
"Enterprise Rent-a-Car is involved with the current Employability and Development module at the School of Management, the Careers module for Economics students, and also has membership of the Employability Skills Committee at the School of Management.
"We deliver workshops, presentations and attend recruitment/careers fairs on both campuses, and recruit students - to placements and internships - and graduates - as graduate management trainees and immediate vacancies - from the University."
Lynne has lots of advice for students who want to stand out in the jobs market:
- Investigate the company's core competencies before applying to increase success levels
- Improve your commercial awareness of the industry sector and company by talking to former students employed in this area, visiting careers fairs and reading new articles
- Invest time in joining student societies, sports teams and gaining internships and part time work to broaden skills and learn to demonstrate self reflection and improved performance as a result
