The role

Throughout all dealings with the customer and / or their representatives, you will maintain a positive relationship to ensure that the reputations of both Sedgwick and our Insurer client are protected.

The Adjusting Executive role is a technical assistant role, designed to support the adjuster’s work throughout the handling of these claims. As an Adjusting Executive you’d work on a one-to-one basis with one of our adjusters, to ensure we can deliver customer service and technical claims handling at the very highest level.

You will have the following skills

  • Cert CILA/Cert CII or the desire and agreement to attain this during the first year
  • First class communication skills, both written and verbal, with a willingness to pick up the phone to speak to your customers in accordance with their needs and requirements
  • The ability to identify if a customer may have a vulnerability, and be able to adjust your communications and handling of the claim accordingly, to ensure they receive the same excellent outcome as all other customers
  • Competent IT skills, and the capability to maintain electronic files to a high auditable standard, including preparation of claim documentation as required, and as agreed with the adjuster(s)
  • A willingness to liaise and build effective working relationships with colleagues in our other internal product lines/departments as required.
  • The ability to manage incoming and outgoing correspondence and complete case enquiries as directed by the adjuster, but with the confidence and technical ability to work without direction where appropriate
  • Understand the importance of ensuring all stakeholders and parties are kept fully updated at all times, and have a pro-active mindset
  • Provide assistance on site on occasion, including Minute taking of meetings, preparation of the action plan, taking statements/photographs etc. as directed
  • Accurate daily time recording, delivering a high proportion of chargeable hours demonstrating technical competence

This is a great opportunity for those who are motivated by the desire to deliver excellent customer outcomes, and the variety of claims work as well as the opportunity to partner with our Home Claims Adjusters and contribute to the ongoing success of Sedgwick in the UK.

Many of our colleagues now benefit from working flexibly between the office and home, which helps support a healthy work/life balance.  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.
