Would you like to work with talented and inspiring MBA colleagues in an innovative environment? Then we are the perfect company for you!
The history of the Admiral Group is one of amazing growth with a strong track record of entrepreneurship started by two INSEAD graduates.
Admiral was launched in January 1993 with just one brand, zero customers and 57 members of staff. The company started from scratch and today has a market capitalisation of over £6 billion and is a member of the FTSE 100.
It markets motor insurance direct to individuals in the UK, Spain, Italy, France and the US, and runs a number of insurance comparison websites multi-nationally.
We are not all about Insurance! You will find Loans, Sharing Economy and New Products teams that will push our Group into our next success.
Now the Group has 18 brands (9 outside UK), over 6 million customers and 10 000 members of staff worldwide. We are consistently voted among the best places to work in UK and Europe, and are currently ranked number 6 in the Sunday Times 25 best Large Companies to work for.
To pursue our growth strategy (launching new products, entering new markets..) we are looking for highly entrepreneurial people to be part of our International Business Development Team.
Working at Admiral Group inside this Team means taking ownership from day one and giving everything for our projects to make a meaningful and sustainable impact.
The IBDM Team is an international taskforce who has the knowledge, the motivation and the talent to set up Admiral’s companies worldwide and for this reason, you will be at the forefront of pioneering change and you will need to use your initiative, creation and leadership to make it happens!
Taking strategy one step further, you will collaborate with Senior Managers across the business and across the Group to provide advisory services that bridge thoughtful strategy, detailed planning, and disciplined execution.
We consider the role as an excellent preparation of highly talented people for a future line senior position. In fact, the next step from this role could be to take on P&L responsibility within the Group.
