Life in Admiral IT

Have you ever wondered what life is like in the IT department of a FTSE 100 company?

IT plays an integral part in the everyday running of the Admiral Group in a friendly environment where ideas are welcomed and hard work is rewarded according to operations manager Helena Amodeo.

The department is responsible for everything from network services to the management of desktops and telephony services and responsible for delivering change.

Helena is an IT Delivery Operations Manager and leads teams focused on delivering business change and value.

She said: "The biggest challenge is how fast the business needs to move and keeping up with the demands to ensure we’re always staying ahead of our competitors, keeping up to date with new technologies and recruiting skilled staff to join us."

Helena said Admiral's IT department supports the business and delivers change that offers value and provides a competitive advantage.

She added: "We are also responsible for running our customer facing interfaces such as our online quote engines and online portal which are built and managed within IT."

IT staff at Admiral are also recognised for their achievements through quarterly department wide awards and monthly reward lunches for star performers as well as incentives for high performers and People's Choice Awards which are nominated by all staff.
