An exciting opportunity to engage with a company that’s just been voted 1st in the ‘Best Big Company to Work For in the UK’ category at the Best Companies Awards!

We are looking for an undergraduate to do a placement year in the Rating Test Team which sits within the Pricing and Analytics area of our multi-award winning business. While based at our global headquarters in Cardiff, the Rating team practices a hybrid working philosophy where individuals are expected to work from the office a few days a week and from home the rest.

Duration: 9-12 months (starting Autumn 2024 and ending Spring/Summer 2025).

Job Purpose

We are looking for high achieving STEM students to spend their placement year with us starting in September 2024! You will be working as a Rating Test Automator, and will spend time working with the various Pricing teams supporting with ongoing development and testing of changes and fixes. This post would suit someone with an interest in computers and computer programming, as it is expected that you will spend a proportion of your time working with our developing automated test systems, as well as designing and executing manual tests. Although it’s a heavily IT orientated position, we will initially provide in depth training on our business and our pricing fundamentals.  This will help you understand the context of the role and allow you to get the best out of your time with us.   

Main Duties (you will be trained and supported through all of these):

  • A genuine interest in computing, the dedication to research and come up with ideas of your own, and the desire to increase your own knowledge.  If you have a passion for coding and technology in your spare time, then we would also like to hear from you.
  • The ability to work alone and as part of a team.
  • Be logical in your thinking and have a natural flair for mathematical and puzzle problem solving.
  • Have a patient and methodical approach to your work.
  • Be able to work to tight deadlines.
  • Have a genuine interest in learning more about our business as a whole, the various departments, and over time their practices and procedures and how this relates to pricing.
  • Be highly organised.
  • Excellent communications skills, both verbal and written are required for this role.
  • Also having the right attitude and desire to stretch yourself is just as important.

Essential Skills

  • We would require that the successful applicant already has experience and familiarity with the Java programming language and working within an IDE.  We will not be in a position to teach Java from the ground up.
  • An understanding of test methodology and its role within the SDLC, including agile techniques.

Desirable Skills

  • Any experience with any of the following would also be advantageous: JMeter, intelliJ, SOAP UI, XML , SQL, Jenkins.

Interview Process

A Maths test, followed by a technical test and a 1 stage interview. 

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.

All colleagues will receive 33 days holiday (including banks holidays) when they join us, and this will increase with length of service, up to a maximum of 38 days (including banks holidays). You also have the option to buy or sell up to five days of annual leave in addition to your allocation.
