Employee Benefits

What We Offer

Happy employees make happy customers, and happy customers make for a successful, thriving company. Working at Admiral, whatever you do, you’ll be making a valuable contribution to the business. That’s why you can expect a great deal in return.

Our Share Scheme

Giving you part of the company is just one of the ways we like to reward our people

Our share scheme is our way of saying “thank you” for all your hard work! After just one year of service, you'll become eligible to receive up to £3,600 worth of shares every year. Thanks to our continued success over the years, we have always paid out the maximum amount.
You can sell your shares after three years, or keep them for five years and then sell them tax and NI free. In addition, you will receive a dividend on your shares twice a year. Our Share Scheme is very popular within our business, and one of the great benefits of working at Admiral.

As one of our four pillars to our culture, Reward and Recognition is extremely important. We believe that happy staff make happy customers, so we have a huge range of great benefits to make sure everybody has something to smile about! Take a look at a few of our more popular ones below.

Pension

Parental Perks


Maternity leave - staff receive 16 weeks of full pay, followed by 23 weeks statutory maternity pay.

Paternity leave - staff receive 2 weeks full pay, 2 weeks statutory paternity pay and 12 days of unpaid leave (should they wish to take it).

Shared parental leave - when both parents work for Admiral, they can share the 16-weeks full pay benefit. If one parent is employed by Admiral, and together with their partner fulfil eligibility criteria, they can share the parental leave.

The support doesn’t stop at parental leave. We recognise that flexible working is another valuable way in which our staff can attain the work-life balance they need, and so employees can request flexible working arrangements.

Equal Opportunities

Our Equality, Diversity and Dignity at Work policy ensures that each and every employee is treated equally and fairly, regardless of their background. People are our most important asset and we respect, value and celebrate the individuality and diversity that everyone brings. We actively encourage job applications from anyone who has the right skills for the role.

We pride ourselves on being flexible and supportive and will do what we can do accommodate individual needs and circumstances. Our aim is to create a culturally aware workforce that mirrors the communities we serve, so we are always looking at better ways of engaging with and supporting the needs of a diverse range of people.

We also work with other organizations, including Remploy, the African Community Centre, Acorn, the Prince's Trust and Job Centre Plus. Admiral has been accredited for meeting five key standards of conduct regarding the recruitment, training, retention and career development of disabled employees.
