  1. Full time

Closing date

15/05/2021

About the job

We are looking for graduates with at least a 2:1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification in Maths (or another subject that has a strong numeric focus) to join the Rating team within the Pricing and Analytics area of our multi-award winning business at its global headquarters in the centre of Cardiff.

We have consistently been recognised as one of the best companies to work for in the UK and we are now looking for talented individuals as we expand into exciting new products and services. As part of our rapidly growing business, graduates at Admiral enjoy fantastic opportunities for career progression as well as our unique employee ownership model, which includes a free share scheme open to all staff.

This means there is an added incentive to make a difference to the future of Admiral and make our business your business.

Our Rating Team

The Rating Team is responsible for maintaining the rating engine for our Personal Lines Motor and Household products such as Car, Van, Home, and Landlord Insurance. We work closely with our Pricing and Analytics areas to understand their requirements and ensure that we carry out changes in a timely fashion. Our role is crucial in ensuring the customer journey is not affected.

What to expect from this role?

Based within the Pricing and Analytics area you will spend the majority of your time making changes to our rating structure using a software package called Ratabase.  You will be part of a team that is responsible for ensuring that any required changes to the rating structure are implemented correctly and the appropriate amount of testing is completed.

As your system knowledge grows, the expectation will be for you to take on more responsibility and become more independent when carrying out the investigation, building, and testing of increasingly complex changes.

Essential skills and experience:

  • Minimum 2:1 in a maths (or a similar subject with a numerical focus)
  • A logical mindset - the ability to combine analytical thinking based on numbers, together with common sense and ingenuity
  • Attention to detail – the ability to review and write concise documents
  • Time management – the ability to prioritise work and manage your workload
  • Communication – have confidence in liaising with other members in the team and other departments both verbally and in writing
  • Experience in using Microsoft products such as Excel and Word
  • Coding aptitude or experience

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Any coding experience from school, university, or hobby would be beneficial (i.e. VBA, SQL, Python, Java)

Additional Information

We also offer a steady path of career growth with many of our previous graduates progressing to Senior Programmers and a variety of leadership roles involving regular contact with the highest levels of decision-making within our business.

Thanks to the culture and structure of our business, the skills and experience available in our Rating team would be transferable to other departments as we grow our product portfolio.

While this role is based in our head office in Cardiff, due to the impact of COVID-19 the Rating Team is working remotely. It's likely that you will initially be required to work from home, and we will provide you with everything you need to work comfortably.

However going forward, we anticipate that this role will allow you to work partially remotely on a more permanent basis.

Benefits and Work-Life Balance

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.

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.
