#WomenThriveAtEnterprise

To celebrate our 13th consecutive year in The Times Top 50 best places for women to work, a new campaign has been created to help attract the best female talent featuring the hash tag #WomenThriveAtEnterprise. This follows on from our advertising last year, which focused on real life stories of women who have been at Enterprise over the many years that The Times has published this ranking in conjunction with Business in the Community. The first profile has had over 40,000 impressions. Check out Enterprise’s social media pages to read the career stories of our inspirational women.
