About Admiral

As the only FTSE 100 Company in Wales and ranked by the Sunday Times as the 3rd best big company to work for in 2018, Admiral is an exciting place to begin, or continue your career

Since launching in 1993, Admiral has grown from being a small start-up to becoming one of the UK’s largest car insurance providers. Our history is one of amazing growth and inspired innovation.

We’re proud to be an entrepreneurial workplace with a start-up mentality. Admiral is constantly innovating and launching new products, services, and markets both here in the UK and overseas, such as our consumer credit loans business and Veygo car sharing product. We now operate across eight countries with a diverse product portfolio. Whilst our business has changed dramatically over the years, there’s one thing that’s remained the same: our working culture.

Admiral’s success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong people focussed culture. Our philosophy is a simple yet effective one: “People who like what they do, do it better”.  We now have over 10,000 employees, who are right at the heart of our success. We put a lot of effort and investment into making sure our organisation is a happy and supportive place to work, where challenge and career development are encouraged, and fun is never frowned upon.  Admiral has an honest, open culture that’s wholeheartedly focused on four key areas: communication, equality, reward & recognition, and fun.
