It’s Diversity and Inclusion Week at Admiral!

Diversity and Inclusion is an important topic for all of us at Admiral. We have a workplace that welcomes everyone irrespective of their background or ethnicity and we are working hard to remove any barriers to entry that may exist and ensuring that we create opportunities for everyone to develop. However, we need to do more and make Admiral a truly diverse and inclusive workplace so that we can attract, nurture and retain the very best talent. We need diverse thinkers to challenge us, it will help us make better and more informed decisions and ultimately ensures our customers get the best products and services.

Diversity is a broad topic covering a range of characteristics: gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age, and social background. In the Financial Services sector, all these groups are under-represented, and experience pay gaps when compared to society as a whole.

We’re proud to have a strong performance in Diversity and Inclusion and that is why we’re different -

  • We are proud to observe near equal representation of men and women across the whole business
  • We have a low gender pay gap
  • 9% of Admiral staff identify as LGBTQ+ compared with 2.2% for the UK population
  • Admiral’s UK BAME percentage is broadly in line with the economically active population within our geographic demographic (6.9% vs 8.7%)

We are committed to delivering even greater diversity within the business and are hosting our very first Diversity and Inclusion week, to not only raise awareness of all the great work our Diversity groups (Age, BAME, Gender, LGBT, Disability and Social Mobility) have achieved to date, but also, what we have planned in the months and years ahead.

The week will be filled with various activities, webinars, talks, videos, and lots more. 

There'll be opportunities for everyone to get involved, we have:

  • A fascinating Q&A with Cristina Nestares, Admiral UK CEO, on why Diversity and Inclusion is important to us at Admiral, and what our key targets are.
  • BAME leader Gurmeet Singh will talk about how Diversity and Inclusion plays a part in Admiral’s success and gives us some great advice for the future.
  • Charlotte Bennett, Neo Director and Diversity and Inclusion representative will talk about imposter syndrome and the importance of taking on any challenge headfirst.
  • Laura Pengilly, Internal Careers Manager, along with guest speakers, will talk about internal opportunities, including our talent programmes and the more conventional route of applying for roles via our intranet. This session is to support those wishing to take the next step in their Admiral career!
  • Nik Miller from the Bridge Group and a selection of Senior Managers from around the business discuss ‘’who gets ahead and why?’’. The panel explore challenges for progression within the Financial sector and how we at Admiral are tackling this head on.
  • Our UK and International Heads of Diversity and Inclusion discuss the great work and key achievements across the group, and we get a glimpse of what the future of Diversity and Inclusion in Admiral will look like, globally!
  • Matt Wintle, Head of Learning and Development and Déborah De Paola, Learning and Development Manager will be sharing their mentoring plans for the next 12 months!
