About the Role

The data platform created in the Cloud by the Data and Analytics Tribe is now the backbone of our data strategy. Over the next few years, we will be migrating our data and analytics workload to the platform, and we are looking for data analysts to kick start this journey with us.

We are looking for an experienced data analyst to help us build our data pipelines and reports.

Responsibilities

You will be part of a multi-disciplined team building a cloud data platform, spanning better data and better tooling.  Across the tribe you may get involved in:

  • Developing reports and dashboards to enhance and replace existing reports, using new reporting tools including Looker and our in-house portal
  • Developing an in-depth understanding of our internal customers, enabling you to identify areas and opportunities for development and efficiencies
  • Becoming an effective point of contact for other departments to discuss business problems and potential solutions
  • Assisting in training and onboarding new users to the toolset and managing the change created by a new way of working
  • Maintaining existing ETL processes from our existing data sources
  • Reconciling our data in the cloud back to source systems and develop tools and code to make the process more efficient

About You

We are looking for an enthusiastic and numerically minded individual, that has a keen interest in data and can think creatively around a brief and challenge. You must have a keen interest in programming, be excited to cross-skill, have good problem-solving skills, and be ready to research and learn new techniques that can be applied to the task at hand.

We work in an agile fashion and are looking for someone who can work using their initiative as well as part of a diverse team whilst delivering to agreed timelines in a fast-paced and changing environment. Support and training will be offered on any new technologies or area.

Desirable Skills and Experience

  • Minimum of a Bachelor's degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science or Data Science (you can also apply for this position without a degree if you have experience in the fields mentioned)
  • Experience with a programming language such as SQL and ideally Python or R
  • Experience working in a Cloud environment, preferably GCP
  • Experience working with Big Data, ideally in the field of insurance but not a must
  • A genuine interest in data and analytics and driving forward capability in the field
  • Strong numeracy and problem-solving skills
  • Curious mindset with a desire to explore and learn about new tools and tech
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills

Additional Information

Due to Covid, the whole team is working remotely. We will provide you with everything you need to work comfortably from home. We expect you to be working remotely for the foreseeable future, however, once it is safe to return to the office, we will have days in the office for the team to collaborate. We would generally expect the successful applicant to be in the office around 40% of the time on average as a minimum, and this would increase for certain periods of planning and team building.

Salary, Benefits and Work-Life Balance

We do not have a set salary for this position, as it will be dependent on the successful candidate’s experience. We are happy to see CVs from all candidates who meet the requirements and will be happy to discuss the remuneration package.

At Admiral, we are proud to be a diverse business where we put our people and customers first. We have great benefits to ensure employees have a great work-life balance; it's one of the reasons we're voted no. 1 in the 2019 Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For in the UK. We want you to have an element of freedom to define a working lifestyle that supports this, so accommodate flexible hours wherever possible.

Taking time off work to be with your new family is very important and we recognise that many fathers, partners and adopters want to be more hands on and involved with the care of their children. We are committed to supporting our staff when they go through parenthood and a valued source of support is provided by our Parental Leave policies. The policies allow staff to spend cherished time at home with their family, so that when they return to work, they can thrive and flourish.   Our policies go above the statutory pay requirements to encourage our staff to take more time at home when they become parents. As long as you've worked for us for 26 weeks, you can expect the following benefits. Maternity LeaveEmployees receive 16 weeks of full pay, followed by 23 weeks statutory maternity payPaternity LeaveEmployees receive 2 weeks full pay, 2 weeks statutory paternity pay and 12 days of unpaid leave (should they wish to take it)Shared Parental LeaveWhen both parents work for Admiral they can share the 16-weeks full pay benefit.

When it comes to staff benefits and perks we have everything you’d expect from a large FTSE 100 company, like a contributory pension scheme, free shares, dental care and so on.  Our commitment to providing staff with the services and support they need to ensure that they are happy and healthy in their working lives ensures we are offering more than the basics. We hope this has contributed to the fact that we’ve made the Sunday Times Best Companies to work for list for the 17th year in a row.In this article, we will explore some of our most popular staff benefits…1. Free staff sharesAll staff who work for the Admiral Group receive up to £3,600 worth of company shares every year after the first year of service. Staff can sell these shares when they reach 3 years old, and at year 5, they are tax free, so its worth holding off if you can!Many staff have used their shares to buy holidays, their first house, cars etc. No wonder its one of our most popular benefits!2. Staff and family discountsA 15% discount is available off our car and pet insurance policies, as well as 10% off travel and home insurance for the following: employee, spouse, partner, children, parents, brothers and sisters. As well as discounts on our insurance products, we offer a staff breakdown scheme. On top of these discounts, a favourable APR rate off our loans from Admiral Loans is also available.3. Moving home advanceIf you’re looking to buy your first home but don’t have quite enough to get the deposit you need or to cover the legal fees, or if you’re looking to move into a rented property but need help to cover bonds and moving costs, then you can receive an interest-free advance of up to £2,000 from the company.4. Buy a book schemeYou can purchase books that will help you develop in your role at Admiral Group and the company will pay for them through David’s Buy a Book Scheme.5. Tickets to sponsored eventsOne of the benefits of working for Admiral is access to tickets to events that Admiral sponsors. In the past this has included tickets to, Wales rugby home international matches, pantomimes, shows at the Wales Millennium Centre, Techniquest Afterhours, weekly ticket giveaways to Chapter Arts Centre and much more.6. Discounts in local shops/businessesWe have secured staff discounts, ranging from 5%-25% with many local and national retailers such as; Oakwood Theme Park, Thomas Cook, Cardiff Nutrition, Wahaca, Papa Johns, Tim Hortons, Wok 2 Walk, O2, Pure Gym, The Body Shop and many more!7. Contributory pension schemeYou can start paying into the company pension scheme as soon as you start working for the Admiral Group and we will contribute to your pension up to 6% of your basic gross salary or a total of £9,000 p.a., whichever is lower.
