So, who are we and what can this role offer you?
Admiral Group was founded by two INSEAD MBAs and is a FTSE 100 financial services company, with a market cap of over £8bn and operations in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, the USA, Mexico, India and Canada. We have a strong company culture and were voted the 3rd Best Big Company to Work For in the UK by the Sunday Times in 2020.
In the UK, the role reports directly to our Group CEO, Milena Mondini, and focuses on three areas – strategy, new ventures, and product – both in the UK operations and internationally.

No prior knowledge or experience in insurance or financial services is required.
Working as part of our MBA team means taking ownership from day one and producing tangible business results. You’ll need to deliver value to our business, be able to make challenging decisions, and always be on the lookout for improvements and innovative solutions.
If you impress us after 12 months, we expect you to move into a senior position, setting you up for a successful, rewarding and exciting career with us.
Most of Admiral’s CEOs and many of our most senior managers started their Admiral careers in this role.

The Group level role is based in Cardiff. There are also opportunities in Paris, Rome, and Seville, however we usually recommend spending an initial six-month period in our HQ in Cardiff to become familiar with the business at Group level and to network with our senior managers and CEOs before moving to your preferred location. This can be discussed based on personal circumstances. The scope of the role varies slightly between operations.
