Your New Company

My client is an International Independent Lloyd’s Broker based in the heart of the City. Due to substantial growth, a need has arisen to add a Claims Technician to the team responsible for Property & Casualty Claims.

The Role
As a Claims Technician, you will be working within an established team, where your duties will include:
• Coordinating the services that may be required by policyholders following an accident or incident.
• As well as communicating with policyholders, claims handlers liaise with external experts such as loss adjusters and lawyers. They may become involved in loss adjusting activities, (investigating the loss), or in legal discussions about the recovery of money from the party responsible for the loss. Work on complex cases requires experience and expert knowledge.
• Involved in managing a claim from inception through to settlement. Depending on level of experience and knowledge, you may be involved in investigating potentially fraudulent claims and undertaking a range of loss adjusting activities.

Experience Required
• You will have proven experience working as a Claims Technician ideally handling Property and Casualty Claims together with Reinsurance.
• The ability to understand insurance coverages provided and whether a claim is valid or not
• Procedures and policies in relation to the identification and management of potential conflicts of interest and the fair treatment of the customer, including knowing the difference between acting for the insured and for the insurer, depending on the claim being handled
• Solid evaluation of the class and type of loss
• Good understanding of company specific procedures related to claims activities
• Awareness of FCA regulations and how they affect the handling of claims.
