(This role will be based in Cardiff, but will require frequent trips to Paris)

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

Admiral’s Pricing department has always been a fundamental cornerstone of the successful growth of our business. We are looking for an enthusiastic and talented individual to join the International Pricing team, to support our French operation, L’olivier.

This role will be based in Cardiff, but will require frequent trips to Paris, France, for periods of a few weeks up to a few months. It will give you exposure to senior management in the UK and France and allow you to make an impact early on in your career - so it’s perfectly suited for an ambitious graduate keen to develop within an analytical role.

You will initially train under one of our more experienced analysts, so you won’t be thrown into the deep end! However, you should be a fast learner as we expect you to get to grips with the role within a few months and start taking on your own projects after that.

The International Pricing team is comprised of ~15 people, who work with different areas of the UK and international businesses. You will become our resident expert for the French business in the UK.

The UK business, based in Cardiff, is Admiral’s oldest, largest and most developed company. The Pricing practices that originated here inform all of the international businesses. As Admiral Group’s youngest Insurance operation, L’olivier is a fast-growing business with an exciting work environment. In this role, you will get to experience the best of both worlds - an established and highly successful company here in the UK, and an ambitious start-up in France.

Your responsibilities

  • Evaluating our pricing structures and past performance to improve risk management - focusing specifically on the French operation.
  • Communicating results and ideas to key decision makers in the UK and France, including Heads of Departments and CEOs.
  • Collaborating with peers in pricing and with stakeholders from all relevant areas of the business in the UK and internationally.

Qualifications and skills we are looking for

  • Qualified to degree level with a 2:1 or above (or equivalent) in a highly mathematical subject.
  • The ability to combine analytical thinking based on numbers with common sense and imagination.
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Some French language skills and knowledge of France are highly desirable.
  • Personality and a sense of humour (we believe work should be fun!).
