Employee-centered from the start: Admiral’s hiring process puts you first

One of Halifax’s best employers is looking for individuals who are positive, adaptable, resilient, customer-focused and who thrive when faced with a challenge. If this sounds like you, keep reading.

The recruitment process at Admiral Insurance was designed with you in mind. They know the job hunt can be nerve-wracking and that’s why they’ve made it as stress-free as possible. Once you start your application, it’s only four steps before you’re part of the team!

“One of the things that we always keep at the front of our mind when recruiting is the experience our potential new hires have throughout the hiring process.”
– Recruitment Administrator, Jackie Macleod


Get your foot in the door

Admiral’s online application form is a breeze to fill out. Once reviewed, you’ll receive an email letting you know if you’ve been selected for a telephone interview or not. You’ll always be kept informed of your status throughout the process. You’ll never be left hanging. On the phone interview, let your personality and experience shine and you’ll be invited for a casual meet and greet at the Halifax office.


The meet and greet

 A favourite among Admiral’s candidates, the meet and greet is your chance to get a feel for the company’s culture and meet some fellow candidates. Here, you’ll learn more about the role you’re applying for including its benefits and potential challenges.

“Admiral prides itself on its work hard, play hard mentality and I believe this is showcased well in the meet and greets. Admiral provides scores of benefits but we work hard for them.”
– Admiral Cultural Ambassador, Connor Wheaton

There’s a reason Admiral is consistently rated one of the best places to work. They know what’s important to potential recruits – transparency. Sure, it’s important to hear about the benefits and perks of the job, but it’s even more important to fully understand the role you applied for. Admiral is looking for the right fit, and they want to make sure that they’re the right fit for you too!

The most common question candidates ask during their meet and greet? What’s the catch? Such an employee-centred office seems too good to be true. Once people see Admiral’s culture and bright workspace first-hand, the meet and greet facilitators’ most difficult job is reminding them that there’s still a job to do!


The interview

Here, you’ll meet face-to-face with the hiring manager (often on the same day as your meet and greet). At this stage, the most important thing is to show that you’re a fit with the company – a hard worker with a drive to succeed and a good attitude. Like all other aspects of the recruitment process, the interview is conducted with you in mind. You’ll be welcomed with a friendly smile and asked some questions to make sure it’s a fit. You’ll also be asked to do a short role play to show off your skills. Your hiring manager can’t wait to meet you!


The offer

You made it! If your application was successful, the folks at Admiral will be in touch as soon as they can to give you the good news. Hopefully, the next step will be you joining the team!

Admiral’s Halifax office opened in May of 2007 with just 20 employees. Its current Halifax headcount is 486, with a 9.71% growth over the previous year and it’s no fluke. They have been recognized as one of Canada’s Great Places to Work every year since 2010 and they’ve also been named one Nova Scotia’s and Atlantic Canada’s Top Employers annually since 2015.

If you’re on the job hunt and looking for a company that cares as much about you as it does its bottom line, look no further than Admiral. You can apply to join their Customer Renewals departments through the Vacancies Page on the company site at https://joinadmiral.ca.
