The Role – Property Adjuster:

We now have an excellent opportunity for domestic loss adjusters across the UK. Your role will involve handling a portfolio of domestic losses, from visiting the customer to finalisation of the claim, and with appropriate experience under your belt you will progress to handling claims of values up to £100k. Full training will be provided to deliver the right outcomes for our customers, our Insurer clients and Sedgwick.

We will consider candidates with no loss adjusting experience but with the right attributes.

Our adjusters adopt a mix of site, home and office-based working throughout the week. You will also be required to engage and work with multiple internal and external specialists. When you do spend time in our office, you’ll experience bright and open surroundings which offer excellent areas for collaboration as well as desk space.  It’s an ideal environment for working alongside and interacting with fellow colleagues.

Whilst you will be comfortable working on your own, you’ll be a core part of our extensive team of adjusters, and you will have dedicated technical and managerial support.

 

Required for this role:

  • Effective communication is crucial for this role as you will need to interact with policyholders, insurance companies, contractors, and other stakeholders.
  • Strong analytical skills to assess the cause and extent of the loss.
  • The ability to deal with property damage claims with complex situations and challenges.
  • Be accurate in assessing property damage and determining the appropriate compensation.
  • You will be required to handle multiple claims simultaneously, and so you must effectively manage your time, prioritise tasks, and meet deadlines to ensure timely resolution of claims.
  • The ability to listen and respond to people effectively whilst displaying empathy.
  • You should have strong negotiation skills to reach fair and satisfactory settlements for all.
  • There will be occasions when we require you to work away from home during exceptionally busy times, or when there is a business need in another region.
  • You should maintain confidentiality, avoid conflicts of interest, and adhere to professional standards and codes of conduct.
  • Knowledge of insurance policies, claims processes, and property damage assessment, or at least an understanding of home insurance and basic home construction.
