Our Company

One of the UK’s most recognizable insurers, Admiral provides car insurance, home insurance, loans, and various other products to over 7 million customers in the United Kingdom.

Admiral's Halifax office opened in 2007. We employ over 400 staff who support our customers in the United Kingdom with home and motor insurance policies.

We have been recognized as one of Canada’s Great Places to Work every year since 2010 and we’ve also been named one Nova Scotia’s and Atlantic Canada’s Top Employers annually since 2015.

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 employees are at the heart of our success. 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.

Hybrid/SMART Working

Our hybrid working or ‘SMART Working’ model is a flexible working arrangement that incorporates a mixture of in-office and remote work into your working routines.  Ideally, Smart Working offers the best of both worlds – structure and sociability on one hand, and independence and flexibility on the other. 

You will initially work from home.  We want you to have an element of freedom to define a working lifestyle. Post training, we will endeavour to accommodate a flexible SMART Working schedule wherever possible.
