Placemakers: Nurturing future talent through placements at Solent University

27 May 2022

Enterprise Rent-A-Car partners with Solent University to deliver impactful placements which help to break down barriers, enabling individual and organisational growth through a graduate recruitment programme. Enterprise has partnered with Solent to grow the number of applications of students from a BAME and lower socio-economic background, as well as convert and promote talented students into successful employees. The placements provide students with hands-on experience to develop and apply their business skills. Alongside this, staff from Enterprise have participated in the university’s professional mentoring programme, enabling the business to work directly with students and gain insights from future recruits.

Ashley Hever, UK and Ireland Talent Acquisition Director, at Enterprise said: “Solent was a logical choice for us when choosing to partner with a university. We’ve gradually built our engagement with the team at Solent, who have taken the time to understand the needs of our business and present solutions that drive benefit to everyone involved.”
