Rewarding and challenging: The supportive and flexible work of Admiral's Bodily Injury teams
Our Bodily Injury Correspondents in Swansea and Newport handle claims from people injured in accidents that may not have been their fault and for which they can claim compensation.
Today four members of our Bodily Injury department share their experiences of working for Admiral:
Paul Graham (pictured above) has spent the past 18 months working for our Bodily Injury department in Swansea.
He said: "Working at Admiral you definitely have to be outgoing and for this kind of role you need to be a good problem solver. It's about being calm as well."
Peter Stonelake (pictured top) joined the Bodily Injury team in Swansea last year and said: "The most rewarding part of my job is the variety of work."
"The working atmosphere is a joy and I look forward to coming into work."
The 55-year-old added: "The people here and the culture are very friendly."
"Nothing is too much trouble and I found that from day one."
Anton Hinchliffe (pictured above) also joined our Bodily Injury team last year and said he appreciated the training and support he received.
Anton said: "I had mentors throughout my training and I was with a mentor on my team."
"The work is challenging but it is really rewarding as well."
"I have really invested myself in my role and the company has invested in me as well."
Leah Young (pictured below) secured a job on our Bodily Injury team after working in a variety of departments within Admiral over the course of the past five years.
Leah said: "I came to Admiral straight from university.
"The key to this job is to stay calm, know your case, know your arguments and stick to them.
"It is like a family working here, the support you get from day one is unreal, especially in this department."
Rhian Jones from Newport Bodily Injury said: "I joined Admiral on February 16 2015, I have now been on the Personal Injury department in Newport for 12 months, time flies when you’re having fun! I can genuinely hand on heart say I have not once not wanted to come to work in the mornings, which is an unusual feeling. My role is challenging and I learn something new every day, questions are welcomed and there is plenty of opportunity for progression with hard work and fun along the way."
"I have already attended lots of afternoon activities with my team and department events which I think reflects the culture here of work/life balance. I love the flexible working time, if I have a special occasion I would like to attend I can leave work an hour or so earlier so I am able to attend. We have regular training, at least twice a month from different colleagues, managers, different departments or solicitors which is interactive, not to mention the social gatherings and grub after work.
"I always feel supported by my peers and managers, everyone is very approachable and I am confident I have made friends for life, I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else!"
Jason Baker from our Bodily Injury team in Newport said: "I have been here now for a year and have thoroughly enjoyed my time settling into Admiral life."
"I wasn’t sure exactly what the job would be like, but there’s always a great atmosphere on the teams and plenty of fun to go with a really interesting role in the company. There is plenty of opportunity to get out of the office and within a year, I have already been to trials in Cardiff and Canterbury court, in Kent."
