Graduate analysts drive Admiral Telematic success

An Admiral analyst who joined us as graduate has played a key role in one of our ground-breaking hi-tech developments.

Paul Taylor was involved in the design, development and launch of our portable Plug and Drive Telematics device which tracks the location, speed, heading and even acceleration of its users.

Information provided by the device has the potential to reduce insurance premiums for new customers and existing policyholders at renewal.

Paul was hired by Admiral in 2010 after graduating with a degree in Maths and its applications from Cardiff University.

The 27-year-old joined us as a trainee programmer in our Management Information (MI) department and said: “A friend of mine on my course did his year-out here so I know quite a bit about the company through him.

“I joined MI because I enjoyed programming and a lot of the things I learned in my Maths degree applied to that role.”

In 2012 Paul was approached to join our Telematics team which led to a management position and added: “I received on the job training and underwent courses with Admiral’s training Academy.”

He said: “I was involved in the design, development and launch of the Plug and Drive product which was exciting to be a part of from day one.

“We had the prototypes for the product and also attended a lot of site visits and meetings with suppliers.”
