The people behind the promotions - Sophie
Sophie started her career at Admiral two years ago and has recently been promoted to Senior, she told us a little more about her achievements at Admiral.
“I started at Admiral as a Contact Centre Representative and within the first six months was moved to being a ‘Task Agent’ which involved training new staff. Recently there was a restructure of the Inbound Sales department which saw me being promoted to Senior a month ago.”
“It’s a tough job as a Senior, it can be stressful, but that’s what I love about it. I like helping people and at the same time, I’m climbing the career ladder.”
“I was first attracted to the Inbound Sales department as I was money motivated by the shares Admiral offers all staff, as well as the potential incentive available. More recently I thought about my long term career aspirations and set myself goals; in two years I wanted to become a Senior (which I have achieved!) and in five years I want to become a Team Manager. There are so many opportunities here I don’t think I’ll ever leave!”
We asked Sophie what new candidates can expect from the application process and any advice she has.
“When I first applied to join Admiral, I didn’t get through and I realise now that my application form was weak. On the second occasion I applied for the job I made sure I did some research and mentioned some facts about Admiral in my interview. I also made sure to expand on my answers and show off my personality more. This obviously all paid off as I got the job!”
“My advice to new candidates would be to come in and hit ground running, be engaged, get involved in everything, source new ideas and try and gain a broader understanding how the function and business works. We want someone who can come in open-minded, engage people and ultimately learn the job.”
Admiral believes people who like what they do, do it better. As part of the culture, showing reward and recognition is a big part of what makes them successful.
