“After passing training, I was eased into the role and started taking live calls. I felt confident to do so with all the training I received and support around me.
“I enjoyed working with my team, and was given constant feedback to develop my skills. There are also lots of fun competitions to keep morale high!
“Once I was comfortable handling calls I was able to progress and take a higher blend of retention calls, which gave me the opportunity to show off my ability and skill against other great and experienced agents.
“Once a senior position became available in the department, my manager and senior gave me the help and experience I needed to apply. I also had help with mock interviews and my application was successful!
“My favourite thing about working in the Renewals department is the people; I’ve always found the staff very approachable from the Consultants to the Head of Renewals. Also, there are great progression opportunities in the department, and I really feel I can make a difference in the department. I like that the role is challenging, and that negotiation is a key element of the role. It’s a very competitive department, as we are all very motivated individuals!
“The benefits at Admiral are also fantastic, from discounts in shops and car insurance, to dental care plans!
“I joined Admiral when I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in future, but now I can’t imagine leaving. I love the department I work in and hope to progress further within Renewals.”
