How long have you worked at Admiral?
I’ve worked at Admiral since October 2011! I spent 10 months as a Sales Representative before I was promoted to a role where I spent half my days coaching and developing a team and the other half helping our UK customers to buy our insurance. About a year later, I was promoted as a People Services (HR) Business Partner which I did for about 3 years and I’ve recently taken on the position of Recruitment Executive.

I am the first point of contact for career seekers. I handle all phases of the external recruitment cycle from attraction, screening, and bringing in motivated candidates. I help with onboarding and ensure that Admiral Halifax always has top talent coming in. I also help with internal recruitment as most positions are filled from within.
