How to: Prepare for your interview

‘Talk us through your CV’

This is your chance to sell yourself in a few minutes (we’d advise between three and five). Talk through the most relevant parts of your CV, not all your experiences will be relevant for the role and it’s fine to focus more on those that are.

Focus on concise communication. If talking about your university, for example, perhaps mention just one or two specific modules. This first impression is the part of the interview that you can prepare for so practice a polished introduction!

We may ask about a specific module, project, or dissertation topic. Make sure you have a recent example in mind and be ready to explain it clearly.   

Research the company

We are looking for proof that you have researched the company, what we do, and what the business is all about. Show us you’ve gone beyond the job description. Try to avoid just talking about the expected numbers and statistics and instead focus on demonstrating an understanding of Admiral and what the figures mean.

We’d expect you to have a basic understanding of how the business works and how Car Insurance works. We appreciate you might not understand all the details (this is fine!), but some research and awareness will help you dig deeper into the interview questions.

A good idea, particularly if you don’t have car insurance, is to run a quote on our website. This will give you an idea of how the rating works!

Consider our company culture. We may be a business, but there’s more to Admiral than the financials and the products we sell. Take a look at what we’re like as a workplace and consider how this impacts your motivation to work with us.  You can learn more about Admiral culture.

Motivation for the role

Competence isn’t enough when it comes to the role. We want to see genuine motivation – why do you want to work at Admiral and why do you want this particular role? Consider the working environment, the company culture, and the elements of the job description that sparked your interest. What stood out to you and made you apply?

Prepare your questions

We’ll give you time at the end to ask questions. This is a perfect opportunity to express your motivation and curiosity. Take time to think carefully about what you may like to ask here - we’d suggest sticking to no more than two or three.  

Of course, if you have more questions following the interview, you can always follow these up with the Recruitment Officer at a later date.

Good Luck!
