Motor insurance group Admiral to take its South Wales workforce through the 5,000 mark with latest recruitment drive

Motor insurance group Admiral is recruiting a further 236 staff in South Wales.

In its latest recruitment drive Admiral is creating 108 new jobs at its offices in Swansea, 88 in Cardiff and 40 in Newport.

The expansion over the next three months will take Admiral’s workforce in South Wales through the 5,000 mark to stand at 5,145. This will see it employing  2,670 in Cardiff, 1,950 in Swansea and 510 in Newport

The Cardiff headquartered FTSE 100 firm is creating new call centre roles, including in the areas of sales, customer services and renewals.

Admiral’s head of people services, Ceri Assiratti, said: “It’s fantastic to see the business continue to expand.

“We’re recruiting significantly for our offices across south Wales and are looking for high quality people to help us provide great service for our customers.

 “We’ve had many successful years here in Wales and are delighted and proud to be growing further.”

 Next year Admiral is due to move into its new headquarters in the centre of Cardiff, as well as moving to new offices in the centre of Newport.

Sandra Busby, managing director of the Welsh Contact Centre Forum, said:“We are thrilled that Admiral is set to create an additional 100 jobs in Swansea, as well expanding in Cardiff and Newport.

“For Swansea it’s the third announcement of its kind in the last three months. With Virgin announcing 230 jobs in February and Serco’s 450 in April, it is evidence yet again that South Wales continues to be an attractive destination for the contact centre industry.

 “The thriving industry continues to offer a rewarding career for upwards of 30,000 people across the country as it continues to grow at a healthy and sustainable rate.

“The growth is driven by the expansion of existing operations, rather than the opening of new contact centres and provides a significant boost to the Welsh economy year-on-year.”
