When an LV= GI customer is responsible for a car accident, we’re able to resolve their claim more efficiently if the innocent party also uses our services. That’s why we look to our Direct Claims Handlers to build rapport with the other driver, helping them to choose a repair route right for their needs and encouraging them to switch to LV= GI for a smoother, speedier resolution. Join us and you’ll manage each claim using your own judgement to ensure you always get the the best outcome for our customers and our business.

There are plenty of perks on offer as part of our buzzing, supportive Direct Claims team including individual and team incentives. What’s more, you won’t find any tough targets here. Instead, what’s most important is that you do the right thing for the customer, every time.

What are we looking for?

A natural on the phone, you’ll need to be comfortable and confident speaking to a wide range of people - building rapport and trust with everyone you speak to. Along with your excellent communication skills, you’ll also need to be tenacious, outgoing and have excellent influencing and negotiation skills. Previous experience in a sales environment is great but far from essential. Above all, we’re looking for someone who’s committed to always doing what’s right for the customer. 

 

What will you be doing?

 

You’ll carry out your initial training from home. Following this - depending on government advice and allowance - we’d like you to join us in the Bournemouth office for a minimum of two days a week.

 

This is a full time, permanent role so you’ll work 37.5 hours on a three week rolling rota between Monday - Friday 8am-6:30pm. As part of the rota you’ll be required to work one in three weekends (Saturday 9am-1pm) and up to two Bank Holidays each year.

Whether it’s a motoring incident or a traffic accident, you’ll use your initiative to find solutions that work for our TP customers and our business, playing a vital role in helping people get back to a normal way of life.
