Car insurers Admiral have announced their plans to bring a further 750 jobs to Wales by the end of June. The positions will be shared out across three of the company’s bases in Cardiff, Newport, and Swansea. Admiral already boasts a large employment base in its home country of Wales with a workforce of 3,000 and a further 800 employees outside of Wales. According to the bosses at Admiral, they’ve already recruited 490 new workers and are looking for a further 261 employees to fill their available positions. Recruitment on this scale has not been a walk in the park, with the insurance company interviewing approximately five people for every single position filled. They estimate that between January and March of this year, Admiral’s recruitment team have conducted 2,338 telephone interviews, seen 1,894 people at their assessment centres, and interviewed 819 people. The burgeoning insurance group say they have been less affected by the economic downturn compared to other industries, one of the main reasons for this is that car insurance is a legal requirement and not something motorists can afford to go without. Due to the growth the insurance company has experienced of late, Admiral is able to recruit on this high level, meaning their workforce will have grown by 11% in the first of 2010.
