75 New Jobs with Enterprise Car Rentals

Vehicle rental company Enterprise Rent-A-Car has announced the creation of 75 new jobs in the coming year along with a new headquarters in Blanchardstown, West Dublin.

Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation, Damien English TD announced the opening of the new Enterprise Rent-A-Car headquarters in Blanchardstown in Dublin as part of the company’s plans for growth and expansion throughout Ireland.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is part of Enterprise Holdings, the world’s largest vehicle rental company, which also includes the National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands. The company is expanding the business in Ireland and plans to recruit 75 new employees in the coming year.

The employee positions on offer include more than 60 on Enterprise’s full-time Management Training Programme and 15 part-time positions in the placement and customer service department. The Management Trainee roles are open to graduates of any discipline and the company’s ‘promote-from-within culture’ means that employees who start out on the programme learn the business from the ground up and have the opportunity to rapidly progress to senior positions.

Full Details of Current Opportunities with Enterprise Rent-A-Car are available here.

Operating in Ireland since 1997, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is known for its extensive network of locations, everyday low rates and outstanding customer service. Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland employs more than 200 staff in its 25 branches. As part of its business expansion, the company plans to open and relocate a number of its branches to larger premises within the next six months to include the Long Mile Road and Russell Street in Dublin’s city centre.

Speaking at the announcement today, George O’Connor, Managing Director of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland said: “When we started Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Ireland we had just two employees and 10 cars in the fleet. I’m delighted, now, almost twenty years later that we are continuing our expansion with year-on-year growth. We are in the process of relocating a number of our branches across the country to bigger premises and we are looking to take on up to 75 employees within the next fiscal year.”

“The new head office and recruitment drive that we are focusing on reflect our ongoing investment in Ireland, as well as our commitment to aiding the local community both economically and socially”, he continued.

Speaking at the opening of Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s new headquarters, Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation, Damien English T.D., said: “Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s announcement that it is establishing its new headquarters in Dublin and expanding and growing it’s workforce is great news and a further testament to the skilled workforce in the country which continues to attract successful companies to Ireland. These jobs coming on stream will also have a positive knock on effect on the wider region and local economy.

“The company’s plan to hire and promote graduates and employees as part of its national business growth strategy is a great example of what is possible in the area of employee engagement and upskilling. I wish George and the team every success with the expansion of the business”, he continued.

The new head office in Dublin adds to Enterprise’s growing network of more than 400 locations throughout Ireland and the UK.
