Our client is a leading UK MGA, with a strong presence throughout the UK. Due to continued growth, it has an opportunity for an experienced Casualty Claims Handler in its Manchester office.
Joining an existing team of Claims Handlers, you will manage a portfolio of Employers’ & Public Liability files. These losses will have been incurred within numerous UK sectors such as Construction, Leisure, Retail and other trade schemes. You will manage these files from first intimation, liaising with the insurers and other appropriate third parties, to expedite the claims process and bring them to a successful conclusion. Throughout the lifecycle, you will offer technical advice where required, chase for necessary updates, and ensure clients are given realistic timescales for each step of the process. Whilst training is on offer, it is your responsibility to strive for continuous professional development, keeping abreast of industry changes, market publications and legislation. As the business has continuous growth plans throughout the next few years, this is an excellent time to join the team as the role will offer genuine scope to progress.
It is essential that you have a genuine passion for claims handling, and pride yourself on achieving the best possible settlement on behalf of your clients within the policy terms. As such, you must possess excellent communication and negotiation skills, and be able to manage claims in a fair and expeditious manner. As well as keeping the client abreast of their claims progress, you will be expected to assist with claims reviews, providing your expert opinion on the best course of action to resolve claims, and give advice on preventative measures in order to keep your clients’ costs to a minimum. It is essential that you have demonstrable experience of working in a Casualty claims environment. Applications from those individuals with experience gained from within an insurance company, syndicate or TPA background are welcomed.
In return, you will benefit from a competitive basic salary, generous benefits package and support towards professional qualifications. You will only be limited by your own ambition and this opportunity could really boost your profile within the close-knit Liability industry.
