Enterprise Rent-A-Car has opened a new branch at York railway station.
The global car hire company located at the station earlier this month in response to increasing demand for its car rental services from business customers and tourists.
Four new jobs will be created in the branch, one of which will be for a graduate who will be part of Enterprise’s nationwide Management Trainee Programme.
This is just one example of the job creation Enterprise is driving in the north of England.
More than 100 positions across the region have been generated by the company in the last year.
Enterprise currently has two branches in the city, but the new location will provide business travellers and tourists visiting York with easier access to Enterprise’s unique Pick-Up service, discounted weekend rates and one-way rentals.
Brian Waligora, general manager of Enterprise in the north of England said: “Thousands of people go through York train station every day and for many, hiring a car is the most flexible and practical choice for onward travel.”
“We hope that we can play a part in aiding the thriving tourist industry in York and the surrounding countryside by offering visitors flexible options for exploring the area.
“It’s pleasing to see the company performing strongly in the north of England and creating job opportunities for people in the region.
“We look forward to welcoming visitors to York and local residents to the branch, and to having new members of the team.”
This new site adds to Enterprise’s growing network of more than 370 locations throughout the UK. Enterprise is the largest vehicle rental company in the UK, with more than 90 per cent of the population living within ten miles of an Enterprise branch.
