International Women’s Day: Tabatha’s Story
Let’s celebrate the women in our business! As the UK’s third Best Workplace for women in 2019 we’re keen to raise awareness against the bias and take action towards equality.
We spoke with Tabatha, a Product Owner within our Online Department to hear about her career experience in Admiral and celebrate her success.
‘’I joined Admiral in 2015 as a Claims Handler. After I passed my probation, I went on to join a specialist team within the department. I was lucky enough to be asked to complete a full review of our claims journey which resulted in me heading into the Project Manager world. As a Project Manager I was responsible for several. Recently, I have moved to our Online Department where I am now the Product Owner for our online journey.’’
‘’A lot of the projects I have been involved with have required a good understanding of processes. One of my strengths is that I can quickly pick up a new process and understand where improvements can be made and how these can be implemented. With so much interaction working with different business areas, I am constantly learning and developing my understanding of the business and its processes, this gives me the confidence to ask questions and challenge why we do what we do.’’
‘’Talent can be found in so many different places not just work. Don’t be afraid of pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone and taking risks in work and your personal life. I believe that talent shines when you are happy doing something, so spend time in understanding what makes you happy and what you enjoy!’’
‘’Admiral has great management; they took a chance by giving me exposure to projects that potentially could have been better off with someone more experienced. This trust and support has allowed me to grow in confidence and go onto bigger projects, without being nervous of failure.’’
