The company has operations in the UK, France, Spain, Italy, the US and Mexico and aims not only to provide better services each and every year, but to be a great employer too.

Admiral’s working culture is based on four core values: communication, equality, reward and recognition, and fun. These values drive the company’s overarching vision of providing a workplace where people who like what they do, do it better.
