Strategic Pricing & Analytics for Risk (SPARK) Leadership Program

“We’re looking for people with the potential to become the future leaders of our FTSE100 company.

If you are curious, pragmatic, nice to work with and not afraid of making your own way, we want to hear from you! We need leaders who want to have impact - and we’ll help you get there.”

About the Company

The Admiral Group was founded by two MBAs with the aim of providing an enriching, challenging, and fulfilling work environment, while making a positive impact on the world and our customers.

Having been purely led by our founders until 2020, we have built a company based on innovation and long-term growth. We are now a highly successful and profitable FTSE 100 company with operations in the UK, France, Italy, Spain and the USA and a market cap of over £6bn. We have also been voted a Great Place to Work in every single one of our operations, something we are immensely proud of.

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:

  • 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

We have three options within the SPARK program:

  • International Pricing Team: This multi-national team is 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.
  • UK Pricing: You will start in International Pricing in Cardiff as above, but you will be dedicated to our UK business, which is our largest and most mature.
  • Local Operations: You will be based in one of our local operations (Paris, Rome, Seville, or Richmond (USA)), and will undergo the full SPARK training program led by the International Pricing team.

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
  • 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 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 voted as 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.

Please note, we are unable to accept CVs via email.

Our Commitment to You

At Admiral, we are committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. Admiral is proud to be an equal opportunities employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, reproductive health decisions, or related medical conditions), national origin, gen-der, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or any other legally protected status.

All qualified applicants will receive equal consideration for employment.
