Vic Nolan started at Whizgo in 2008 when car clubs were in their infancy. She became Clubhouse Manager in summer 2009 when Whizgo was acquired by City Car. She is now Clubhouse Manager of Enterprise Car Club.
What do you like about your current role?
Every day is different. Clubhouse is the nerve centre of car club, we have to know the working of the whole business. We have that ‘small business’ customer services feel. I have a great team that have been with me from the early days.
What is the key skill that has helped you in your career?
Organisation! I am never without a ‘to do’ list. Being in a tech role you have to be reactive and proactive. I wear lots of hats and have to know the whole business. I’m always assessing different departments.
What is your career highlight?
I made the final of the Women of the Future ‘mentor of the year’. Dan Gursel, Director of Enterprise Car Club, nominated me for training five apprentices to promotion.
A fun fact about yourself?
I was mistaken for Danni Minogue and was asked for a photo. The worst part is, I played along – why not?
What advice would you give to someone starting out?
I left school at 15 with no qualifications and was told I would amount to nothing. Someone took a chance on me. Since then, I’ve been repeatedly told that it is the passion I have for everything that helped me succeed. Never be afraid to show passion, it’s infectious and authentic.
