We have an opportunity for a graduate-level individual to join one of the fastest-growing parts of Admiral Group.
Our Data Vision and Team's Purpose
At Admiral Financial Services (AFSL), we believe that understanding and engaging with our customers is central to everything we do. The way we gather, analyse and understand our customer data will be critical to the launch and success of our propositions. We believe that the right way to scale our business is to intelligently automate so that our amazing colleagues can focus on the value-add interactions with our customers and other stakeholders.
You will be joining AFSL’s new Data Science team on our exciting transformation to the cloud, and the adoption of Agile ways of working – two important foundations for any modern data team. Our new team spans all data disciplines including data science, analytics, visualisation, engineering, architecture, and machine learning. We embed our data team into all business areas, so you will get first-hand insight into how each discipline makes a difference to our customers and colleagues, and time to build your network in AFSL’s data and business community.
You will work in AFSL’s Data Science team, working closely with data analysts to take their insights, and turn them into easy-to-read, accurate, and performant dashboards, using the best visualisations to bring discoveries to life. Working closely with managers to put data at their fingertips, you will also understand what metrics matter to them.
The Role's Objectives
We’re a big believer in personal development and preparing you for success in this role as well as your next. We’ll provide a range of on-the-job training as well as other opportunities to learn all the key skills you’ll need.
Due to Covid, the whole Admiral Financial Services is working remotely. We will provide you with everything you need to work comfortably from home. We expect you to be working remotely for the foreseeable future, however, once it is safe to return to the office, we will have days when the whole team comes together to collaborate. You can decide if you want to come to the office between 2-5 days per week.
Admiral Group is a FTSE 100 Financial Services company with a presence in eight countries. The company was set up in 1993 as a car insurance specialist, but since then the Group has expanded in other countries and other insurance verticals such as household and travel insurance, in loans, price comparison platforms, and has developed innovative products.
Admiral Financial Services was formed five years ago and has been an amazing growth story with major ambitions to grow even further. This means we are now looking to enhance all our capabilities, particularly how we leverage data and automation.
The Group has 7 million customers worldwide and employs over 11,000 people across its operations. Admiral is a growth story with an enviable track record of strong financial performances, ROE consistently over 50%, a turnover of £3.5 bn, and a profit before tax of £520 m in 2019.
Admiral’s philosophy is that ‘people who like what they do, do it better’ and Admiral is proud to offer an open culture where achievement is rewarded and recognised and where coming to work is exciting every day. In 2019, Admiral received a special award from ‘Best Companies to Work For’ as the only company to feature within their rankings since they began 20 years ago: a true testament to the Group’s culture.
