Opportunities & Benefits:

Graduates tend to join Admiral in one of two ways - either on our analyst graduate programme, or directly into a graduate analyst role. The graduate programme involves three 8-month rotations across various data functions and is supported by our graduate programme manager. This suits a graduate who would like a bit more support and wants to explore their options. The alternative is to join a department directly in a graduate level role, where you will receive on-the-job training and support and can start progressing in your career from day one.

Admiral is a very open company and there are always opportunities to try something new, so you would never be “stuck” in a job.

We have an array of benefits including £3,600 in shares every year (after a year of service), free gym membership, free fruit every day, free tickets to sponsored events, time off for charity work and flexible working hours.
