About the job

Who are we?

Founded by two MBAs with a vision for creating a challenging, enriching work environment, Admiral Group has evolved into a highly successful FTSE 100 Financial Services company.  With operations in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and the USA, serving over 9 million customers, and boasting a market cap exceeding £7bn, we pride ourselves on being recognized as a Great Place to Work across all our operations for several consecutive years. 

As Admiral continues to grow in both size and complexity we're on the lookout for talented individuals with the potential to shape the future of our company. If you're curious, pragmatic, and enjoy forging your own path, we want to hear from you. We're in search of leaders who are eager to make a meaningful impact, and we're committed to helping you achieve just that. 

Our pricing department holds the key to our competitive advantage in the market, and we want you to be part of that success! 

The Role: International Pricing Manager on the SPARK Leadership Program 

The ideal International Pricing Manager (IPM) possesses both analytical and managerial qualities, combining curiosity with logical and creative thinking, and great interpersonal skills. 

You don’t need any specific industry experience, as we’ll help you acquire the relevant knowledge. 

The SPARK Program provides: 

  • 6-9 months of dedicated training to understand our Pricing, Analytics, and Data departments 
  • On-the-job learning through projects that have real impact 
  • Exposure to senior managers (including C-suite) around the Group 

Projects could include supporting the launch of new products, implementing new technologies, researching new data, deep-diving into country-specific challenges or sharing knowledge across countries to solve complex problems. 

Main responsibilities 

  • Identifying new opportunities and owning Pricing or Analytics projects 
  • Supporting the development of our future strategies in the areas of Pricing, Analytics, and Data 
  • Sharing results and ideas with senior decision makers 
  • Managing and collaborating with analysts and data scientists 
  • Assessing our pricing structures and past performance to improve risk management 

Future Career Progression 

The goal of the SPARK program is to prepare you for future senior leadership roles, either within the Pricing & Analytics functions or in the wider business. The fast growth of our international companies, as well as our expansion into new product lines, will create exciting future career opportunities for IPMs. 

Past IPMs include the CEO of our US Insurance Operation, and the Head of our Travel Insurance venture in the UK. 

This high-profile role is suitable for MBAs committed to building a long-term career within Admiral. 

Location 

Our International Pricing Team is a multi-national team, based in our headquarters in Cardiff (UK) but provides strategic advice and support to our international operations. The role includes opportunities to travel to our international operations for both short visits and longer assignments, and you may be able to relocate to one of our international offices in the future. 

Our international offices include Paris, Rome, Seville, Madrid and Richmond (USA). Local Operations. We offer opportunities to join our team from these locations also, and we are happy to discuss this with you.

Specific requirements 

  • MBA from a top business school 
  • Strong quantitative skills supported by a solid academic and work background 
  • A strategic mindset, as demonstrated by previous experience (this could be in consulting, strategic project management or analysis, working with senior managers, etc) 
  • French, Spanish or Italian are a hard requirement for the Local Operations route (aside from the USA), and highly desired for the International Pricing Team route 

Desirable traits and attributes 

  • Proactive and creative approach to taking initiative and getting things done 
  • Eagerness to disrupt European markets with AI driven digital products
  • Team player who can build relationships across functions and geographies 
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills and an ability to inspire and influence others 
  • Willingness to learn the necessary technical skills from the ground up 
  • An interest in data science or big data technologies, and some experience in these areas, may be considered an advantage but are not mandatory 
  • Personality and a sense of humour (we believe work should be fun!) 

Start date 

We are currently recruiting for September 2024. However, we are flexible with dates and will take individual circumstances into account. 

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 consistently voted one of the 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.
