Our success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong culture.

Our philosophy is simple yet effective: people who like what they do, do it better.

Our culture is honest, open and wholeheartedly focused on four key areas: Communication, Equality, Reward & Recognition, and Fun.

The Four Pillars

These pillars set out the experience of everyone who works here.

Close all sections

Communication

We are extremely proud of our open and honest two-way communication. We ensure that everyone has the opportunity to voice their ideas and know that they’ll be heard. Our flat structure and open-floor plans allow fast and efficient communication flow at all levels.

Equality

Our inclusive, open-minded and respectful environment ensures that we support employees in achieving their career goals. You’ll be seen as an individual; valued and recognised for who and what you are – an amazing employee and an asset to our company.

Reward &
Recognition

It is extremely important to us that we praise our employees for doing a good job – we give constant feedback and say ‘thank you’, day in, day out. We show appreciation through a variety of financial and non-financial rewards; from bonuses and shares, to a thoughtful email, a shop gift card, and more!

Fun

Our philosophy is ‘people who like what they do, do it better’. Having fun and spending time with colleagues is encouraged; it makes life more enjoyable. There are many ways in which we foster fun, from team outings and competitions to Christmas and summer parties. Our Ministry of Fun ensures fun for all!

We are proud of our diverse working culture – it’s what makes us Admiral!   If you’re looking for a workplace where you can just be yourself, you’re in the right place!

Diversity & Inclusion

As a part of our ongoing commitments to our employees, we are devoted to providing a working environment that promotes diversity and equal opportunity and where there is mutual trust, respect for human rights and no discrimination.

We are very proud to be a diverse workplace and of all the fantastic work of our Diversity and Inclusion forum (a group set up to address positive change). In 2019 we set up six working groups, as part of the Diversity and Inclusion forum to ensure Admiral remains a safe, inclusive and diverse place to work.


Gender

We are proud to observe a near equal representation of men and women across the whole business and a board which is almost 40% female.

In 2018, we reported a median gender pay gap of 3.6% and a mean gender pay gap of 12.8%.

Ethnicity

There are people from 57 different nationalities working in our UK offices.  We are committed to ensuring race or religion does not act as a barrier to entry, nor a barrier to progression.  

There are 18 different religious or belief systems followed by staff at Admiral.  


Sexuality

We want everyone to be able to be themselves here.  9.35% of our employees identify as LGB+, 0.1% employees identify as non-binary/gender neutral and a further 0.1% identify as trans. 

In our annual staff survey, 97% of employees felt they were treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation.

Disability 
We believe that disability is not a barrier to success within the company, including progression into other roles.  Just under 3% of employees consider themselves to have a disability or long-term condition.

We have a Disability Confident Status and are currently working towards a Disability Leader Status.


Social Mobility
The Social Mobility work-stream aims to highlight any barriers which disadvantages staff from particular social backgrounds, to remove these barriers where possible, and provide these employees with the tools to fulfil their potential.  

Also, for our entry level roles, we do not ask for any minimum educational achievement.  


Age 
Age is not a barrier at Admiral, where our employees range from 16 – 73.  We also realise that at different points in your life you may need extra support.  We offer paid time off for anyone over 50 for breast and prostate cancer screening, and the same for anyone who has a cervical smear test appointment at any age. In addition to this we also have a ‘care for dependants’ policy, where you might need some longer time off to care for older members of your family.

Summary

Maurizio (INSEAD 2017) joined Admiral in 2017 and is now Head of Loans in ConTe.it. We caught up with him to find out what he was looking for in his career and why he chose Admiral. "Admiral stood out to me because it was founded by two INSEAD MBAs, which really resonated with me as an INSEAD student myself. I was excited by the Future Leaders Program and the blend of internal consulting, accountability and potential for growth that the program offered. I started talking to people in the company and soon realised that Admiral also has a very unique culture.   There were two main things that matched my post-MBA career expectations that convinced me to join Admiral over other alternatives: The first was growth. I wanted to be in a growing company, which would provide constant new opportunities and projects. It was especially exciting to see how the company’s growth was driven by people – putting customers and employees first. The second was accountability. Admiral gives MBAs visibility and responsibility from day one. This was an important factor for me. There are many, well-paid MBA jobs where you don’t step up in terms of responsibility and project scope. I wasn’t only after a salary rise: I wanted to have an impact and establish a long-term career, too. One of my favourite things about the role is the opportunity to do something meaningful. My job is meaningful to the business, to our customers and to me. For anyone considering a career in Admiral, you need to ask yourself what do you really want? We are not one of the biggest companies out there and, as an insurance company, we don’t claim to be one of the coolest - but we’re far from boring!  We are different in the way we work and there are so many opportunities to explore and drive your career with us. Most importantly, we trust and empower our people giving them real ownership and accountability. Where do you see your career in three to five years? Do you want accountability and ownership in a growing environment? If so, this is the program that will offer you that. Other firms may also be great companies to work for, but if you look at the actual program and the role you’ll be doing, you are entering an arena with hundreds of other MBAs all at the same level as you, which means you’ll have fewer possibilities of having an impact and driving change. Admiral only recruits a handful of carefully selected people. When I joined, I did not feel like just another number. I have been with Admiral for 3 years and have taken on some fantastic roles, which have led me to my current role as Head of Loans in Conte, our Italian operation. I’m excited by our long-term vision to innovate within the personal lending market in Italy. We’re looking to create something fully digital, fast and customer centred. Ultimately, my reason for joining Admiral came down to the question of whether I wanted just another name on my resume, or if I wanted real opportunities. I have worked directly with CEOs and key leaders around the business, gaining valuable experience while Admiral invested in me. I had the chance to build things from scratch, with the backing of a FTSE 100, international business." You can find out more about our MBA Leadership Programs and apply on our website.

Summary

It is a well-known fact that Admiral believe in the ethos “people who like what they do, do it better”, and this is one of the reasons we have a renowned culture and benefits system that has led us to be featured on the Sunday Times Best Places to Work list since it began.  However, in his recent Moonshot Masterclass, Admiral co-founder Henry Engelhardt commented that it is also true that people who are good at what they do, like it better. This is one of the reasons that Admiral place enormous emphasis on Learning and Development, one aspect of which is the Moonshot Program. We have been running Moonshot for over ten months now, providing training and relevant resources to encourage employees, especially managers, to develop their skills and knowledge around core transformational topics relating to technology and data, and thus increase our ability to innovate in a Post-Digital Age. The Moonshot program revolves around a monthly masterclass, whereby subject matter experts give a talk followed by a short Q&A. The topics covered so far have included the Cloud, Outstanding Use of Data, Scaled Agile, New Ways of Working, UX Design, E-Leadership and Success and Failure in New Initiatives. The speakers have ranged from talented internal experts, including co-founders Henry Engelhardt and David Stevens, to external speakers from very successful companies. We want to excel as a successful Tech and Data company, and so this is a platform to hear from the best in class, with a focus on joining them. Alongside the Masterclasses, there are in depth training courses and resources that individuals can access. The topics include Data Governance, Information Security, Advanced Analytics, DevOps and Scaled Agile, to name but a few. As we all know, there is no magical solution to Learning and Development (we really wish there was!), but Moonshot provides the relevant resources to aid and support that process. We recognise how talented our employees are, and we are committed to helping them reach their full potential. If you are interested in joining us, see our vacancies here:Admiral Jobs
