Here at esure Group, we’re no strangers to change. As one of the industry leaders in the insurance business, striving to become a world class digital insurer, we’re getting ready for more. It’s creating great new opportunities for innovative and talented industry professionals to join us at a pivotal point in our development.
It’s an opportunity you simply don’t want to miss. You can expect our investment in you to include a highly competitive package, career and development opportunities and flexible benefits built around you and your lifestyle.
We have a fantastic opportunity for a number of Direct Claims Specialists to join our Motor Claims department based at our office in the heart of Glasgow! This is a full-time permanent opportunity, offering a starting salary of £21,696.
As a Direct Claims Specialist, you'll seek to persuade the third-party claimant to deal direct via our policyholders’ policy, offering a range of services including repairs, compensation for vehicle damage and replacement vehicles.
You will also offer our direct service for personal injury if the claimant has sustained this as result of our accident.
The day to day:
Diary management is essential in the success of a Direct Claims Specialist to secure a strong capture performance of 64% monthly or above. You'll effectively manage follow ups on any potential capture opportunities that you have been unable to secure on the first attempt, and ensure availability to handle incoming calls which could potentially lead to securing a third-party capture.
You'll be persuading claimants to use esure Network Repairers and Suppliers, informing them of esure products when appropriate and providing sales and service contact numbers, whilst aligning with internal esure policy and procedures, and comply with external best practice and legislation, e.g. equal opportunities.
Teamwork is key at esure! You'll work collaboratively with colleagues to achieve the best outcomes for esure, identifying and recommending opportunities to improve processes across the team. You'll also identify and feedback on any areas of concern involving external suppliers which affect service delivery.

You will split your time between home and our Glasgow office. This will be based on where the need is each month and what has been agreed as a team. Our focus on office working is around collaborating, connecting with colleagues and customer and creating. We expect that you will be in the office 40% - 60% of your time.
