We’ve been running graduate programmes since 2006, so we have plenty of experience in training and developing Grads into successful and long-term employees.

We run two main programmes; our General Programme (open to any degree discipline) and our Data/Analytics Programme (open to STEM subjects). We also have many direct entry roles for graduates in a STEM discipline, who prefer to go straight into a data-oriented role, rather than do rotations.

Our General Graduate Programme is open to students of any academic discipline, though we do like to see a strong research-based degree, such as Business, History, English, Geography, Politics, Psychology etc. This is a 2-year scheme encompassing four 6-month placements across your choice of business areas to help you develop yourself and your skills. This programme is perfect for those of you who aren't yet sure of what kind of career you want to go into.

The Data/Analytics Graduate Programme is tailored for students of STEM subjects, in particular Mathematics, Physics, Economics and Engineering. You will need to have strong data analysis and mathematical skills, as well as be a logical thinker. Our analyst scheme is a 2-year scheme with three 8-month placements in analytical areas of the business, such as Management Information (MI), Pricing, Analytics, Claims, or Operations. This programme is perfect for those of you, who know you want to apply your maths skills, but aren't yet sure in what sort of role this might be.

Our aim is for the programme to help pave the way for you to have a successful, rewarding and exciting career with us.


Both programmes give you the flexibility to shape your own career with borderless opportunities. You will learn and progress, working alongside colleagues at all levels, as well as working abroad in one of our international offices if it suits your career path

We invest in you

We know that training and development is hugely important to anyone starting a new career (or first job), so we invest heavily in you to make sure you get everything you want out of it. We understand that most people come to us with no prior knowledge of the insurance industry. So, you and your new grad cohort can expect a 5-week induction period to help you settle in, and get you up to speed with Admiral and the insurance world. We want you to embrace the Admiral culture, so we will also spend time on some team-building activities to help you all gel as part of a team.

Your first placement!

After your induction, you will be ready to start on your first placement with us! We tend to assign the first placement to you, depending on business needs and your background, to ensure a good match. All our placements will give you a good level of responsibility, ownership and support. However, it is your job to get the most out of any opportunities given to you, so you do need to be proactive and ambitious to be successful on each and every placement. You will be involved in choosing your next placements, bearing in mind where you want to take your career, as well as business needs and priorities.

The Admiral Academy 

Throughout your placements, you will be invited to train with our inhouse training department, the Admiral Academy.

This training will give you the chance to get to know the business better, something which will put you in good stead to go on and succeed with us. You can also request training through the Academy, in anything from improving your confidence to your Excel skills.

Grow your CV 

Both Graduate Programmes allow time for you to acquire a nationally recognised qualification with the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).

This qualification will require substantial input and commitment from you, but it is a great opportunity to further develop and enhance your skills and career prospects.

We are here to support you

Finally, we understand that transition from university can be quite a daunting experience, so to ease you into the programme we'll provide you with your own experienced business mentor, as well as a grad buddy. Your grad buddy is a graduate too, who’s still on the programme, so they will know exactly how you’re feeling. You can ask your grad buddy any questions, or just meet up for a coffee and a chat.

Your business mentor will be better suited to give you career advice or any other support you may need. Both will be a great avenue for you to network through, so definitely make the most of having them!

Summary

Building on the success of our long-standing partnership with the WCCF’s Graduate Programmes, we’re playing a key role in the inception of the new Fast-Track Data and AI scheme. As a proud Welsh employer, we’re thrilled to play our part in helping make our South Wales home a fertile tech landscape.  The eight-month post-graduate programme has been conceived to develop Data Science and AI Professionals locally. Those on the programme benefit from: An initial eight-month placement in one of our analyst areasAn induction and the benefit of non-technical training provided by our in-house training function, Admiral AcademyA business mentor and graduate buddy (someone who’s enjoyed success on one of our in-house programmes)A 4-week bootcamp and applied post-graduate Diploma qualification from the University of South Wales Rowena Morgan, Programme Manager at WCCF, explains Admiral’s role in the AI graduate scheme: “We are proud to work in partnership with Admiral to create and retain graduate talent in Data and AI skills in Wales. The model is an excellent example of a collaborative industry and academic initiative that is unique to Wales and the UK, supported by the European Social Fund. The calibre of the graduates recruited for the Programme has been excellent and we look forward to continue working closely with Admiral and wider consortium employers, to build new talent pools in Data and AI to support our employer’s current and future tech skill requirements.” Our three talented graduates have been placed in growing areas of our business; Risk, Claims and Van MI (management information). Meet Lauraine, Alex and Stuart, our new starters. What projects will you be working on? Lauraine: My role is an Intern Data Scientist within the Risk team. In terms of projects that I am working on, Admiral has been great at giving me a lot of responsibility- which is great but a little daunting at times. My manager, the Graduate Team and other colleagues are so supportive of me though, if I ever get stuck, they always have an answer or point me in the direction of someone who will know the answer! At University, we are learning three different coding languages (R, Python and SAS) and it’s amazing to have the opportunity to apply that knowledge to my role. I think Alex and I are working on similar projects, in terms of moving data into the Cloud- which is great because we can always help each other! I’m also leading a project to create a dashboard that Admiral will use long-term to analyse the different variables in risk. What has been the best thing about working for Admiral so far? Alex: I am absolutely loving it! We only started full-time a couple weeks ago but I think what immediately stood out for me is how calm and relaxed everything at Admiral is. I mean, it is not often you see people wearing hoodies to work! The relaxed atmosphere really put the other graduates and I at ease on our first day.  It is exciting to be with such a well-known brand and also work on an exciting project that will put my R skills to the test to help with monthly reporting and with the larger scheme of moving over to the new cloud-based services. It is great to have been alongside other graduates, from other schemes, during the induction too. It is great to be in the same boat as a group of other people and we have been able to integrate with them well throughout the induction. It just means that there are other people we have been able to network and build long-term connections with.Our trainer at Admiral Academy, Ashley, is so energetic and infectious with his energy that you just engage so quickly with his sessions and learn a lot about the business and self-development. Over the last few days, we have been learning about presentation skills which will be so helpful in our placements and further into the future. The induction, trainers and Graduate Team have been so flexible in ensuring that we have freedom to do our university work as well. From the kindness and supportiveness that I have seen across Admiral, I’m sure this flexibility will continue in my placement.What are you most looking forward to in your placement?Stuart: I’m really looking forward to doing something meaningful and implementing something to benefit Admiral long-term. My team has been great at giving me lots of training and the responsibility to have a lot of control over my project’s direction. When speaking with my manager, there has been lots of ideas thrown around about what project to lead and it looks like I’ll be helping Ancillaries with understanding customer patterns in this area, so I’m really looking forward to getting my teeth into it! Like the others have said, I feel well supported at Admiral and my team are happy to give me pointers if I have a question about anything!

Summary

‘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 here. 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!
