When it comes to staff benefits and perks we have everything you’d expect from a large FTSE 100 company, like a contributory pension scheme, free shares, dental care and so on.
Our commitment to providing staff with the services and support they need to ensure that they are happy and healthy in their working lives ensures we are offering more than the basics. This has contributed to being made the Sunday Times' Best Companies to Work For list for 22 years in a row and in 2022, we were named the 4th best super large workplace (1,001+ employees) in the UK by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the global authority on workplace culture.
Here we've explored some of our most popular staff benefits at Admiral…
1. Free staff shares
All employees working for the Admiral Group receive up to £3,600 worth of company shares every year after the first year of service. Staff can sell these shares when they reach 3 years old, and at year 5, they are tax-free, so it's worth holding off if you can!
Many staff have used their shares to buy holidays, their first house, cars etc. No wonder it's one of our most popular benefits!
2. Staff and family discounts
A 15% discount is available on our car and pet insurance policies, as well as 10% off travel and home insurance for the following: employee, spouse, partner, children, parents, brothers and sisters. As well as discounts on our insurance products, we offer a staff breakdown scheme. On top of these discounts, a favourable APR rate off our loans from Admiral Loans is also available.
3. Moving home in advance
If you’re looking to buy your first home but don’t have quite enough to get the deposit you need or to cover the legal fees, or if you’re looking to move into a rented property but need help to cover bonds and moving costs, then you can receive an interest-free advance of up to £2,000 from the company.
4. Buy a book scheme
You can purchase books that will help you develop in your role at Admiral Group and the company will pay for them through Milena’s Buy a Book Scheme.
5. Tickets to sponsored events
One of the benefits of working for Admiral is access to tickets to events that Admiral sponsors. In the past this has included tickets to, Wales rugby home international matches, pantomimes, shows at the Wales Millennium Centre, Techniquest Afterhours, weekly ticket giveaways to Chapter Arts Centre and much more.
6. Discounts in local shops/businesses
We have secured staff discounts, ranging from 5%-25% with many local and national retailers such as; Oakwood Theme Park, Thomas Cook, Cardiff Nutrition, Wahaca, Papa Johns, Tim Hortons, Wok 2 Walk, O2, Pure Gym, The Body Shop and many more!
7. Contributory pension scheme
