Inside Admiral

The recruitment process for our call centres

We spoke to Recruitment Officers and Heads of Departments in Outbound, Sales, Renewals, Claims and Customer Services to find out what happens to your application and what they’re looking for at each stage of the process.

Stage 1: Submit your application form

So you’ve decided you’d like to join Admiral and have found a role on our careers site that best suits your skills and experiences – great!

Take the time to fill in the short application form consisting of some personal details and current/previous employment. This takes around 5-10 minutes to complete.

What we’re looking for

At this stage we are looking for candidates with an application that is well written with good spelling and grammar - always use spell check!

What happens next?

Application forms normally get reviewed by a Recruitment Officer within 1-2 working days. From there, if the candidate is successful, they will be contacted via email and be invited to complete a telephone interview - book yourself on to a slot as soon as possible as positions can get filled up quickly. 

Stage 2: Telephone interview

What we’re looking for

Candidates tend to stand out at the telephone interview stage if they’ve shown that they’ve completed research on the role, department and company. Candidates can make sure they’ve got a good understanding of all by having a thorough read through the job description. Try to also expand on answers during the interview as much as possible, drawing on any relevant experiences from travels, college, university and a previous or current job.

What happens next?

The notes from the telephone interview will be reviewed and candidates will find out if they were successful within the next 1-2 working days. If successful they’ll be invited to a meet and greet, and if unsuccessful candidates will need to wait 6 months before reapplying for another call centre role.

Stage 3: Meet and Greet

What we’re looking for

It’s just as important that you like us as we like you, so as part of the recruitment process you’ll get the opportunity to come in the office, where we’ll tell you a bit more about the company, you can sit in with the department you are applying to join and get the opportunity to ask any questions you have.

This is your opportunity to impress so dress smart and be yourself; be happy, inquisitive, always show your enthusiasm and willingness to learn, that will really impress the interviewers. Check out our top 7 traits that we look for in candidates.

This is also another opportunity to show that you’ve completed your research on the role and company.

What happens next?

If successful, you will be invited to join on the next induction for the department! 

If unsuccessful at any stage of the process, don’t let it dishearten you, call in, ask for feedback and take it on board for next time.
