We are fortunate that during the COVID-19 pandemic we have not had to furlough any employees and we’re still growing as a business.

At Admiral, we really believe that people who like what they do, do it better and that happy staff deliver great service, which is important as the customer is always at the heart of everything we do. Join us and over 10,000 employees’ globally in one of our challenging and rewarding departments.

We truly care about our customers and we’re very proud of the level of service we provide. By recruiting people like you, who are customer focused and love to help others, we can continue to provide a great service and ensure an excellent experience for our customers. In year which saw Admiral hit record profits we decided to give back to our customers, issuing over 110 million pounds back to our Admiral Group policy holders and the helping the local community.

We’re famous for being different – whether it be our unique culture, with our Ministry of Fun department, impressive benefits including generous share scheme, cycle scheme, flexible working and free gym memberships for all staff. Our people are really important to us, and whatever job you do, we will support you to succeed as best we can.

This is a full-time position with long-term career prospects on offer. You don’t need any experience but you will need confidence, a proactive approach, and a friendly personality, not forgetting basic computer skills. We will teach you all the product knowledge you need to help you excel.

To thrive within our Claims department, you need to have a specific skillset that is perhaps a little different to other Call Centre Roles. Sometimes, our customers ring up having experienced traumatic or devasting events, so we need you to be intuitive, able to read the customer's needs and know whether to proceed with the call at that time, or to call back later. You need to have emotional intelligence, able to understand when to build a rapport, when to empathise, and when to gently get the information needed in a way that doesn’t upset the customer further, building the right synergy on every call.

Claims is unique in terms of our Call Centres, as you will be dealing with ongoing claims and managing your own caseload. This is why it’s important that you genuinely care about the customers you are working for, as this is very much a service-based role whereby you will be required to support the customer throughout the entire process of their claim.  Time management is crucial, so we need motivated self-starters with the desire to help others.

Working in Claims can be difficult at times, as the calls come thick and fast, but we do everything we can to support you and keep the atmosphere fun and light-hearted, as is fitting with Admiral’s core values. There are incentives, competitions, and events to keep you motivated and engaged, as well as boosting moral – we say it a lot at Admiral, but we really believe that people who like what they do, do it better, so we try to ease the pressure on you by making it fun to come into work every day. This is a frontline role, and so it is hugely important to us that we support you to stay engaged and motivated, because you are vital to Admiral’s success.

You should be expected to:

  • Communicate with customers via telephone, writing, email and in some departments, web-chat
  • Manage allocation of customer claims, involving elements of both customer, third parties or suppliers
  • Work with colleagues, departments, suppliers and third parties to complete full investigations
  • Provide a first class service, showing empathy, understanding and compassion when our customers need us most
  • Make a difference, whether this is when speaking to customers or making the workplace an even better place to be.

Admiral has an honest, open culture that’s whole-heartedly focused on four key areas: communication, equality, reward and fun. We believe that ‘People who like what they do, do it better’; therefore culture is an integral part of working for Admiral. Expect an environment that rewards hard work and determination, while having a bit of fun along the way!

As part of the Claims Department, you’ll immediately have access to a vast range of support and opportunities. It’s crucial that you can demonstrate a resilient and pro-active approach to working within a fast-paced, evolving environment – if this sounds like something you’re suited to then we’ll do all we can to help you to take the next step in your career.

Summary

We caught up with Chris, who began his Admiral career almost nine years ago, after spending six years as a Lance Corporal, having served two tours in Iraq We were extremely proud to publicise our promise of support to all those who serve, by signing the Army Covenant back in July this year. We recognise that our Army Reservists are a crucial part of the Defence family, and by implementing protective and flexible workplace policies, we’re able to empower our employees to make a real difference to their personal and professional development.We caught up with Chris to hear his story…Can you tell us a bit about your Army career and career at Admiral?‘I left school with no GCSE’s and decided the Army was the best option for me. I passed my basic training and chose to become a driver by trade and completed all possible licences, including; 17.55-ft, 55-ton, motorbike, off-road, etc, all by the time I hit 17.When I reached my 18th birthday, I volunteered to be deployed to Iraq and that’s when I picked up my Lance Corporal title.In the space of two years, I’d spent a year in Iraq on two separate deployments and I’d experienced a lot, including seeing roadside bombs and losing three friends. After two tours, I was ready for something else and thought to myself, what can I do now?I’m so grateful to Admiral for taking me on during a recession, as I was struggling to find a job for a while. The role was a call centre position, so very different from my background, but I saw it as a great opportunity and a foot in the door. It was a massive change for me, going from what I’d experienced in the Army, to an office-based job, and not forgetting to mention, a pay cut too. After six months I adapted well, got used to the different environment and started to enjoy it.I began in Motor Claims and have since explored various areas of the business, including becoming Admiral’s very own chauffer (which sadly isn’t a position anymore!), before ending up where I am today, which is on the Superior Car team. That’s part of the beauty of Admiral, there are so many internal opportunities to move about the business and broaden your horizons.The Chauffer role sounds interesting, how did that come about?In Admiral, there are many opportunities to develop and experience other areas of the business, so when a job came up for an internal chauffeur, I applied and was successful. I had already completed relevant qualifications for this role whilst in the Army, so it felt like the perfect opportunity for me! Importantly, how was the transition from a career in the Army to a career at Admiral?After being out of the Army for a while, I re-joined as a reservist; I was working full-time at Admiral and part-time in the Reserves. This was a great, but gruelling two years.Admiral supported me during this time and paid me during my training days, as well as the required time away.After my time in the regular Army and Reserves, I adjusted to life at Admiral fine. The decompression training provided by the Army helps bring you back to normality, but also, I love working at Admiral; the simple fact that you don’t have to wear a uniform, or shave; it’s a different world. Coming to Admiral was easy for me, you’re able to leave work on time, and do whatever you want after work, and during the weekends.Whilst I enjoyed my time in the Army, which taught me so much, I now appreciate working in a relaxed environment – and knowing exactly what my day will entail.It’s all the little things about working here that made it such an easy transition for me.What are you doing now and are you enjoying it?I’m now a part of Claims’ Superior Car team – managing a small team that I helped set up from scratch. It involves helping customers who’ve unfortunately been involved in an accident in a “supercar” (Ferrari McLaren , Rolls Royce, etc.). My skills and experiences developed during my Army career, along with my passion for cars and driving, has allowed me to flourish in this role.I feel very lucky that Admiral took that chance on me nine years ago, I’m able to work with my passion and I really do enjoy coming to work every day – how many people can say that?
