The people behind the promotions - Dean
Dean, who has worked for Admiral for eight years talks to us about his successful career, from starting as a Call Centre Representative to recently being promoted to Operations Manager.
“After completing an Accounting and Maths degree I joined the Inbound Sales team at Admiral. My plan was to try and join the finance team but after having a chat with my Team Manager at the time, who said that I could do well in New Business, I made the decision to get my head down and work.”
“I chose to stay with the Inbound Sales department due to the vibrancy and dynamism - when I first joined the department I was encouraged to have fun and achieve my goals whilst having all the support and encouragement I needed. The culture was something I’d never previously come across – I loved it.”
“No matter what level you’re at, working in the Inbound Sales team is always challenging, we’re always trailing new initiatives and are constantly reviewing the way we do things.”
“After two years on the phone I was promoted to Senior and after four years in that role I was then promoted to Team Manager. This is now my first week as Operations Manager and the immediate change has been the challenging work load with many meetings and lots of processes to become familiar with. Organisation is definitely key, I need to know where I’m going and when I need to be there!”
We asked Dean for advice for any new starters who want to kick start their career at Admiral. “Come in and embrace the Admiral culture and have fun. Get involved day to day, use your initiative and share any new ideas you have. All of the management team here started on the phones so put yourself in a position to move up.”
Admiral believes people who like what they do, do it better. As part of the culture, showing reward and recognition is a big part of what makes them successful.
