Enterprise has won the Recruitment Award at Business in the Community’s 2018 Race Equality Awards. The Recruitment Award recognises employers who are working towards ensuring all recruitment processes are free from discrimination and racial bias at every stage and take steps to attract diverse talent.

Enterprise is an organisation that is creating opportunities for hundreds of talented BAME individuals.
