Following a decade of double-digit growth (locally, nationally and globally), the world’s largest independent insurance broker has just announced its annual revenue has increased by over 25%!
This firm puts delivering excellent client service at the heart of everything it does; this is perhaps best evidenced by achieving 97% client retention – no mean feat considering its portfolio generates revenues in excess of £2.5Bn and comprises some of the most coveted accounts on the planet! Another great example of its dedication to delivering excellent client service is that, unlike some global brokers, it does not charge clients for Claims Advocacy work. It believes that a robust claims function is the cornerstone of any broker’s client service offering, and therefore provides the service of specialist teams of inhouse Claims Advocates & Forensics Accountants as a free of charge, value-added proposition.
As one would expect from a brokerage looking after some of the biggest and best-known firms in the UK, its Claims Division’s caseload comprises some very large, complex and contentious losses. As such, it is looking for a Corporate Claims Executive / Advocate or Forensic Accountant with a detailed knowledge of Property Damage & Business Interruption PDBI losses, to represent the interest of corporate clients from a wide range of industry sectors.
You will support the management and presentation of Property Damage and Business Interruption claims. This will include calculating claims, undertaking assessments / stress testing sums insured adequacy, and scenario building for maximum / normal loss expectancy.
This is a home-based role, but you will be expected to attend clients’ premises and other relevant locations (insurers’ offices, scenes of a loss etc), as and when required.
As one would expect, a large part of this role is securing the best possible outcome for clients in the event of Property Damage and Business Interruption claims, negotiating with insurers, Loss Adjusters and other experts. As such, it is essential that you are adept at interpreting PDBI policy language and coverage, as well as having knowledge of the legal principals and key decisions that underpin PDBI claims.
We welcome applications from candidates currently working as a Claims Advocate / Executive or similar roles (from insurer, broker, legal or adjuster backgrounds), as well as Forensic Accountants who are familiar with Business Interruption matters.
In order to achieve the best possible outcomes for clients, you must be a highly polished communicator, with the ability to influence a range of stakeholders.
In return, you will receive a generous basic salary, bonus and comprehensive benefits package. This firm has received the prestigious ‘Best Place to Work in Insurance’ award for multiple consecutive years. As such, you can expect to receive an empowering work environment with a caring employer that offers a myriad of opportunities of progression.
