INSHUR are looking for a Third Party Damage Claims Technician to join their team.
Are you keen to work somewhere that’s stimulating and friendly, with countless opportunities for growth and plenty of freedom to make a real impact? This could be the place for you!
We are looking for a Third Party Damage Claims Technician here at INSHUR; based in Brighton pre-pandemic, and currently 100% remote, though we'd love you to join us in Brighton once a week. A key strategic development is the formation of our own inhouse claims department. Our goal is to provide superior customer claims experience whilst delivering market leading incurred claims costs underpinned by strategic partnerships with our suppliers.
Reporting to (and supported by) Property Damage Team Leader, you'll have the opportunity to positively influence the average claims cost within the team whilst utilising your negotiation skills. A key challenge will be your ability to reduce the average claims cost by ensuring effective third party intervention strategies are adopted.
We’ve got a great team in place and are a people & culture-first business (check out our Glassdoor reviews). We value high performance and care deeply about making INSHUR feel like a place where everyone is building something really special, that we can all be proud of, and doing it with friends.
What you'll do
Supported by a recently developed Case Management System, you will join the Accidental / Property damage team in adopting innovative claims settlement strategies. You will be crucial in ensuring that we embrace relevant technology and supplier support to positively enhance the customers claims experience. As a natural team player you will negotiate claim settlements whilst embracing both the values and culture upon which INSHUR was founded.
We don’t have a checklist of skills - our hiring process is much more about aptitude and passion than ticking boxes. So don’t worry if you’ve not used a particular tool or checked off all the listed skills and experience.
That said, below is a guideline of skills that we think would make you successful in this role.
We'd love to hear from you if you:
- Are a good communicator.
- Have experience of dealing with third party claimants and embracing effective intervention strategies.
- Are a pragmatic problem solver with the ability to think outside the box, prepared to challenge market norms and don't subscribe to a “we have always done it that way approach”.
- Are analytical and continuously striving for operational excellence.
- Always look to obtain strategic claims advantage with the creation of new ideas or processes.
Your colleagues say you are:
- Entrepreneurial, extremely proactive and full of initiatives.
- A true team player, keen to learn from others and keen to share your learnings.
- Customer centric with a great eye for strategic process development.
What we offer

We are based in beautiful Brighton (sea, chips and seagulls included), although we’re currently working remotely. When the COVID situation evolves to a point where we are comfortable working from the office, we will be transitioning to a hybrid model (office and remote). At that point, we'd love you to join us in Brighton once a week (either at co-working spaces or the office) for collaborative work or in-person meetings.
We believe that having a diverse team where everyone can be their authentic self is the key to our success. We are passionate about equal opportunities and improving the tech industry for the better, so we encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.

While this position is advertised as full-time, we are flexible on the specific arrangements for the right candidate and would be happy to discuss part-time, job-share or other flexible arrangements, if required. Let us know in your application if you have accessibility requirements for your interview and we will do our best to accommodate.
