Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme Visit to Cardiff
On 26 February, nine Year 10 students accompanied Mrs Jowett to the Head Offices of Enterprise Rent-a-Car in Cardiff as part of the Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme which partners business mentors with Year 10 students in schools.
The students met their mentors and then had various talks about the different aspects of a big business such as Enterprise. They met the Enterprise Manager of the whole of Wales and the South West region. They listened to talks from the Talent Acquisitions and HR Manager, who also gave them some interview practice, the Sales Manager and his team and, finally, the man responsible for repairing the rental cars after they have been damaged.
The students learned that the most money that the sales team made in one month was £1.8 million which was very impressive. One of the highlights of the day for the students was to look under the bonnet of a very nice Volvo XC60! The students all enjoyed their day and really learned what it takes to make a successful business such as Enterprise Rent-a-Car.
