Life at Admiral

Erin Farrell is a great example of someone who is continuously committed to making a difference through Admiral’s Charity Champion program.

Farrell, who does administration work in our Renewals department in Halifax, has been raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Atlantic Canada for the past six years.

With help from Admiral's Charity Champion program, Farrell has been able to support a close friend who has the neurological condition.

“My best friend was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009 at the age of 24. MS is the most common progressive and disabling condition in young adults so we were saddened to get the news. It is because of this that I started raising money for the MS Society and taking part in the MS Walk every year,” Farrell says.

With the weather picture-perfect for golf, eight Admiral Halifax staff members logged out of their computers and left the office for a day in late June to participate in Feed Nova Scotia’s annual golf tournament Swinging for Supper.

After fundraising over $2,000 for the charity via a 50/50 draw and staff BBQ, Admiral entered two teams (aptly named The Admiral Mulligans and The Admiral Chippers) of four into the best-ball event at the beautiful, world-class Glen Arbour Golf Course.

People Services Manager, Jen Gilbert, said it was great to have fun while at the same time supporting an important cause.

Admiral Staff at Halifax PrideOn July 28th, our Admiral crew had a chance to show off their colours and hoist the flag high as we participated in the PRIDE Parade in downtown Halifax. It was the 25thanniversary of the annual celebration by the LGBTQ community, so it was an extra special honour to be part of the festivities.

In 2007, Admiral Insurance opened its doors in Nova Scotia with a staff of 21 and our sights set on building a successful business venture in Halifax. In our first office on Bayers Road it seemed like we had plenty of space to grow as we created more and more opportunities for people to join our team.
