This role will sit within our People Services (HR) Systems team, however, the initial 12-month project will be in our Communications department. Therefore, we are looking for someone who is flexible and adaptable to change.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to work on a small team of developers based in the Communications department, which has been voted the Best Small Department in the Group, five times!
Your main audience will be staff from around the Group including our international operations. The work will vary from day to day, with a range of requests from all levels of the business. You will also have the opportunity to make changes to the Group’s corporate website.
About the Team
The Communications team consists of Developers, Support, Business Analysts and a project manager. We work full time from Monday to Friday and have very flexible working hours.
The team have a mixed skill set, so we don’t expect you to be a master of everything involved; although we are looking for someone with a passion to learn! We all love what we do and work hard to do the best job possible.
The department uses a variety of tools to communicate information across the Group and to gain feedback from staff on their ideas and how they feel about working here.
Working in a close and friendly team, the successful candidate will report to the Communications Project Manager and People Services (HR) Systems Manager respectively. You will help us support, research and build features to increase the effectiveness of the Group’s Intranet as a communication and information tool. Other responsibilities may include our Corporate Website – admiralgroup.co.uk.
Your main duties will be based around developing new features or adapting and evolving existing ones, to either improve communication around the Group, or help people and make their job that little bit easier. Although you’ll spend a lot of your time writing code, no two days will be the same. You’ll need to get out into the business and meet the people that are using your products. It’s this part of the role that makes it unique to other developer environments.
Experience and Qualifications Required
We have a large number of ambitious projects to work on and need somebody to join us who can contribute from day one. This role will give you significant exposure to the business; therefore, the ability to prioritise complex workloads and effectively communicate with a range of stakeholders will be essential.
Our success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong culture where we put our people and customers first. Our philosophy is simple yet effective: people who like what they do, do it better, and this, in turn, means that our customers receive the level of service and products that they deserve. Our culture is honest, open and wholeheartedly focused on four key areas: Communication, Equality, Reward & Recognition, and Fun.
