Enterprise Flex-E-Rent launches recruitment drive

Enterprise Flex-E-Rent is recruiting more than 100 new technicians to work across its 28 UK depots.

The company is also expanding its technician training programme to more than 40,000 hours a month as it strives to develop its commercial vehicle repair and maintenance services.

Meanwhile, it has also invested more than £1m in diagnostic and workshop equipment and is developing capability for maintaining and repairing electric vans, with more than 500 now part of the Enterprise Flex-E-Rent fleet.

James Walker, group service maintenance and repair manager at Enterprise Flex-E-Rent said: “Our goal is to build an exceptional technical and maintenance resource internally to provide our customers with lower off-road times and help businesses get their vehicles back as soon as possible.

“The key element is bringing in and developing the best automotive brains in the UK. Investment in people is at the core of Enterprise’s business, supported by investing heavily in our workshop infrastructure and parts supply chain.

“We’re looking to recruit more great technicians to meet increasing customer demand, from entry-level apprentices to mechanics with some experience wanting to reskill. We’re also expanding our rigorous training programme to help ensure they have the skills and knowledge required to work on anything from a plug-in electric van to a traffic management vehicle to a 44-tonne refrigerated HGV.”
