Do you work in IT? Find out why Admiral IT is different from anywhere else
IT is a core business function, responsible for driving Admiral forward with first class solutions and technology to run the business in the best way possible. Rhys has worked in Admiral’s IT department for 3 years, he told us about his experience and how he feels the IT department differs from anywhere else.
‘’I joined Admiral as a Senior Project Manager, focusing on the development of the project management function, which I did for my first 6 months. I then had the opportunity to work as a Project Manager on the biggest programme Admiral has ever taken on. I worked with many talented people to take Admiral to a new IT system to support the main business functions and data for the entire company. It was a huge opportunity and a fantastic chance to learn and develop. After this experience I went on to manage the Data Warehouse delivery and now I am Head of the PMO function in IT.
The best thing about working here is the people and the opportunities. As seen by the number of roles I have enjoyed working in, you can really take your career places. If you’re good at your role, you will be given the opportunities to explore new ideas.’’
‘’IT has a very work hard, play hard attitude. It’s a culture of just helping people and that feeds through the business. There is a positive outlook that makes it an enjoyable place to work. The culture here is so different to anything I had experienced before, it really suited me and I felt at home straight away.’’
‘’The department is very fast paced, there is less red tape and I like the fact that we simply do and achieve more in a shorter space of time. It’s great to be part of such a successful team!’’
The IT environment here is a great place to learn with a unique balance of fun and work. I love that we encourage new ideas. I had a new employee begin only today and I said to them that we are looking for fresh ideas. Admiral is an innovative business and we must test and learn!
