Admiral is an insurance provider offering car and home insurance as well as other insurance options through third parties. The brand is best known for its multi-car product, which offers discounts for households insuring more than one vehicle. That approach has since been extended; Admiral multi-cover insurance provides lower premiums to customers who bundle their home and car insurance and cover both with Admiral. The business has over 7,000 members of staff and four million customers. It recently announced a partnership with the AA motoring organisation, under which Admiral’s 4.3 million motor insurance customers in the UK will be offered AA breakdown assistance. Admiral is expanding, and is posting hundreds of staff – both current and some new recruits - to a new office in Cardiff’s Capital Quarter scheme in the city centre. Admiral performs well in industry rankings and awards, and was recently named the Sunday Times Best Big Company to Work For.
