We have a new opening for a Claims Manager in Financial Lines in our Global Corporate & Specialty (GCS) team.

Our Claims Managers make recommendations for operational improvements and undertake relationship management - while also improving the ability of the team to perform through quality audits.

Skills & experiences required:

  • In-depth knowledge of claims handling, quality assurance, fraud and impacting legislation at a level which enables the provision of strategic decision making and direction
  • High value, sophisticated claims handling experience in London Market PI and D&O claims is essential - ideally with knowledge of W&I, FI and M&A claims
  • Excellent interpersonal skills in order to act as a credible representative for Aviva
  • Track record of a commercial approach with the ability to build great relationships with colleagues, clients and the market
  • Up to date and detailed knowledge of social, economic, political and legislative developments with regards to Financial Lines

The way we do this is important too, we’re all about our people – that’s you – so we can be pretty flexible. If you want to work from home some of the time or change your hours so you can pick up your kids or care for someone in your family, we’re very open to that. In fact, we don’t advertise roles as either part or full time, because we know each person has different needs, just as each business area has different needs. So, it’s up to you to discuss working hours during your interview.
