Our Customer Claims Executives play a pivotal role in managing a diverse caseload encompassing personal injury and quality claims, which are lodged by solicitors as well as directly by customers. In this dynamic position, you’ll be at the forefront of liaising with legal representatives and customers to navigate and resolve various claims efficiently and effectively.

Of course there may be occasion when you will need to come into the office, but where possible we offer as much flexibility as we can.
