Joining our Claims Team, you will have a vital role to play. Here within our Claims department, every one of our people is a great talker, listener, investigator, letter-writer and decision maker.

You'll enjoy taking personal responsibility for your own workload, continually reorganising and prioritising to ensure you deliver great service for our customers. With your strong work ethic, Systems Thinking approach and even stronger customer focus, you'll be able to put yourself in our customer's shoes ultimately minimising the impact of the claim to them. Your behaviours will align to our Values (Care More, Kill Complexity, Never Rest, Create Legacy).

So, it’s up to you to discuss working hours during your interview.
