Insurance giant Admiral is looking to fill 60 vacancies at it's base in Newport city centre.

The jobs on offer are across a range of departments in Admiral House, opposite Newport's central railway station, which opened for business just over a year ago.

The company, which has bases in Newport, Cardiff and Swansea, employs thousands of people across South Wales with 900 currently employed in a variety of roles in Newport.

A spokesman for the company, which moved to the bespoke city centre building last year after having been based at Langstone Business Park on the outskirts of the city, said: "We are now recruiting for a wide variety of roles with great potential for progression in our claims, new business and renewals teams in the city centre. All our staff receive £3,600 worth of shares in our business every year as well as free gym use, free fruit, travel loans and discounts in a wide variety of top name stores."

The company is holding a recruitment day at Admiral House on September 10.

Admiral House in Queensway, Newport, was officially opened by the founder of Admiral, Henry Englehardt, along with members of the Wales rugby team.

When it opened it was home to just over 500 employees and it has capacity for more than 1,000 workers.

Call handler Annie Ahern joined Admiral in Newport three years ago and was recently promoted to a senior role in the claims department.

Annie said she appreciates the close network of people she works with.

She said: "I was ecstatic to become a senior, I was looking to progress and a lot of hard work has gone into this. I think I've got to where I am by other people motivating me and motivation is so important within the job that we are doing. My role now is to motivate the team not only to enjoy their job but if they want to progress too."

Fashion graduate Laura Watkins also had designs on progression when she joined Admiral in August last year.

Laura joined the renewals team in Newport and said the department offers real opportunity for career development.

After exactly a year with Admiral she said: "If progression is something you have in mind, this is the department to come to.

"I started as a call handler in renewals and after nine months I had the opportunity to go on a development course to progress into a senior role."
