It is a well-known fact that Admiral believe in the ethos “people who like what they do, do it better”, and this is one of the reasons we have a renowned culture and benefits system that has led us to be featured on the Sunday Times Best Places to Work list since it began.
However, in his recent Moonshot Masterclass, Admiral co-founder Henry Engelhardt commented that it is also true that people who are good at what they do, like it better. This is one of the reasons that Admiral place enormous emphasis on Learning and Development, one aspect of which is the Moonshot Program.
We have been running Moonshot for over ten months now, providing training and relevant resources to encourage employees, especially managers, to develop their skills and knowledge around core transformational topics relating to technology and data, and thus increase our ability to innovate in a Post-Digital Age.
The Moonshot program revolves around a monthly masterclass, whereby subject matter experts give a talk followed by a short Q&A. The topics covered so far have included the Cloud, Outstanding Use of Data, Scaled Agile, New Ways of Working, UX Design, E-Leadership and Success and Failure in New Initiatives. The speakers have ranged from talented internal experts, including co-founders Henry Engelhardt and David Stevens, to external speakers from very successful companies. We want to excel as a successful Tech and Data company, and so this is a platform to hear from the best in class, with a focus on joining them.
Alongside the Masterclasses, there are in depth training courses and resources that individuals can access. The topics include Data Governance, Information Security, Advanced Analytics, DevOps and Scaled Agile, to name but a few.
As we all know, there is no magical solution to Learning and Development (we really wish there was!), but Moonshot provides the relevant resources to aid and support that process.
We recognise how talented our employees are, and we are committed to helping them reach their full potential. If you are interested in joining us, see our vacancies here:
