What makes an award winner?

The winner, throughout the process, will have demonstrated the personal qualities that we look for in our graduates and undergraduates. We’re not looking for a ready-made manager and we aren’t concerned with which university you attend. We want to know more about you as a person.

You will:

  • be interested in a future career in management
  • be driven by the desire to achieve results
  • have a knack for customer service and great communication skills, whether that's through your part-time Saturday job or your role as a representative for your university department or society
  • be able to tell us how you have gained skills and knowledge from any work experience, previous internships, volunteering, extracurricular activities and university societies
  • maybe have had previous leadership roles or positions of responsibility
  • have done your research on Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Previous finalists have set themselves apart by connecting with our employees through social media. You can do that too by connecting with us on @ERAC_Jobs where you’ll find useful resources to help you with your application.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the Management Undergraduate of the Year Award

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is partnering with the Management Undergraduate of the Year Award for the 12th successive year because we believe in offering undergraduates the opportunity to tap into their management potential and develop their skills set.

By applying for this award you will have the opportunity to experience what a graduate recruitment process actually looks and feels like – from the application stage through to telephone interview and, if successful, an assessment centre. You will also get the opportunity to network and get hints and tips from the talent acquisition team at Enterprise Rent-A-Car and some of our business leaders.

Our top ten students will have the experience networking with all the other finalists and this brings invaluable experience. Some of our finalists are now great friends – just check Twitter!

Over the past decade and more we have been able to offer internships and placements to over 90 undergraduates who have applied for our award and are looking forward to seeing some more great applications this year and finding the Management Undergraduate of the Year 2022!
