Whistle-stop Wednesdays: Exploring new opportunities after 6.5 years as a Senior Pricing Analyst

Meet Gaby. After 6.5 years in Motor Pricing working as a Senior Pricing Analyst, Gaby is on a new venture in a new role as a Product Owner for Data Decisions and Integrations for Data and Analytics. Whilst still referring to her Pricing experience, Gaby has taken the plunge to try something different, enhance her skillset and actively make a positive difference to our company strategy.


We caught up with her to find out how she got to where she is now, what it’s like working in her area and what advice she would give to someone looking to join!

What do you do in Admiral and how long have you been working here?

My current role is Product Owner for Data Decisions and Integrations in Data and Analytics. I’ve been in the role for four months and have worked at Admiral for almost 7 years.

How did you get into your role? What is your background?

I started working in the Pricing Queries team in Motor Pricing on a 1-year placement as part of my Maths degree. I loved it so much I ended up staying in Motor Pricing for 6.5 years and became a Senior Pricing Analyst. When the FCA announced their remedies for Pricing practices, the opportunity came up for me to move over to Data and Analytics (DnA) as a Product Owner. It seemed like the ideal way to try something new while drawing on my Pricing experience.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

No two days are ever the same – and that is true of Pricing and DnA! There is always something new and interesting happening, and always the opportunity to learn more.

What's the most exciting change or project happening within your area?

As a highly regulated organisation, changes in FCA requirements mean amendments in a strict deadline and high stakes. The most recent project is exactly that, but we have the opportunity to build some really exciting new functionality for the business that will be transferrable beyond the project.

Do you think there are lots of opportunities to grow and develop here?

Definitely! I was given lots of opportunity and trust at the start of my career to enable me to progress. At Admiral we are one team and talent is shared around the business. If you show you are willing to learn and are open to new challenges, the opportunities will find you. 

What’s the culture like in your area and how is it changing?

Everyone is so helpful and approachable. We have always strived to create an atmosphere where you can ask anyone for help, even when working from home and as the department grows.

Do you have any advice for someone looking to join your area?

Bring your personality! Skills and knowledge can be learned but what makes Admiral special is our culture. It’s a place with no ego, and full of people who are hard-working, motivated and driven to add real value, so a good cultural fit is essential. You’ll get a good idea of the culture here.
