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
