Job Description

Admiral New Business is all about making sure our customer's first experience with us is an excellent one.  As the first point of contact for our customers, it’s important that we deliver an efficient, high-quality service to every single person we speak to.

Handling inbound calls, your role will be to guide your customers through the buying process, informing them of both our insurance products and our related ancillary products. This allows the customer the opportunity to shape their policy to meet their personal car insurance requirements.

The insurance sales job is challenging and competitive, which is why the better you perform, the more lucrative the rewards. Our incentive structure benefits motivated individuals who show a flair for both sales and customer service.

Our aim is to give great service and value for money to as many people as possible.

Our ideal candidates are:

  • Reliable and committed to achieving individual and team goals.
  • “Change champions” who are adaptable to an ever-changing environment.
  • Positive and resilient to handle any challenge that arises.
  • Enthusiastic learners who apply feedback to grow in their role and achieve their goals.
  • All-round excellent communicators with a talent for negotiation.
  • Talented salespeople with the ability to upsell multicar and multiproduct.
  • IT savvy to swiftly update customers details correctly.

No previous experience in insurance or call centers is required. We consider the potential of the candidate, their eagerness to work here, their ambition and enthusiasm, over any previous experience in a similar role. We will teach you the rest!

Our Culture

Our philosophy is simple yet effective: “people who like what they do, do it better!” We put a lot of effort and investment into making sure that Admiral is a happy place to work, where challenge, opportunity and career path development are encouraged, and fun is never frowned upon.

Our award-winning culture is honest, open, and wholeheartedly focused on four key areas: Communication, Equality, Reward & Recognition, and Fun.
