As an insurance claims handler, you'll deal with every aspect of an insurance claim on behalf of our clients. A claim is usually the result of loss caused by events such as fire, flood, theft, or accident

You will handle the whole process, from first notice to final payment. This can get complex, and a loss adjuster may also be involved. You'll handle the relevant documentation, ensure that the process runs smoothly, that the insurance company settles in the correct manner

Your routine tasks are likely to include:

- Liaising with the insured party to take full details of a claim
- Working with the loss adjuster or insurer to ensure the claim is genuine
- Liaising with the broker who placed the risk, and the underwriters
- Ensuring a fair settlement for the client in the event of a claim
- Communicating with both sides to ensure that the client is receiving good service
- Advising clients on insurance issues in general.

As well as handling property claims, you may also deal with commercial and business claims.

Hours and Environment

Your working hours will mainly be 8 - 5, possibly with some extra hours at busy times. You'll be mostly office based, with some visits to insurance brokers and clients. The job can be very pressured and stressful

Skills and Interests
To be a claims handler you'll need:

- The ability to absorb technical information
- An analytical mind
- The ability to make decisions
- Numeracy
- Confidence
- Sound judgement
- The ability to work to tight deadlines
