You will deal with a caseload of primarily commercial property desktop claims, and as such you need the ability, confidence and background knowledge to make the right decisions on each claim. This is a great opportunity for those looking for career advancement covering a diverse and interesting range of claims.

You will have/will be:

- Negotiation skills
- Report and letter writing
- Excellent communication skills with both Customers and Clients
- Prioritise workload effectively
- Experience of dealing with commercial (or domestic) property damage claims
- The ability to work on your own initiative and take ownership of your own caseload of claims
