Sheffield- £17,000 - £21,500+ bonus + benefits.

Full time 35 hours per week

Overview:

I am currently recruiting for a number of Claims Advisors to work in our expanding team within the private medical insurance sector.

Unfortunately life is full of unexpected twists and turns which may lead to our customers making a claim on their policy. When they do, we have a team of friendly, supportive and knowledgeable customer service advisors that assist them during that process to make it as simple and as stress-free as possible.

What you will be doing:

* Answering inbound calls from policy holders (approx. 20 per day) - talking and listening calmly to understand their needs. You will be able to put yourself in their shoes and be able to relate to their situation.
* Asking the customer questions to obtain relevant information that will assist you in processing their insurance claim.
* Taking full ownership for your customer to get the right outcome for them on that first call whenever possible.

About You:

To be successful in this role we think that you will:

* First and foremost, be a people person! You will love speaking to and engaging with customers on the phone and thrive working as part of a large, friendly team.
* Have had previous experience in a customer service related role. Knowledge of insurance products / financial services would be great, but more importantly you will be willing to learn.
* Always put yourself in your customer's shoes - Be empathetic towards our customers, understanding and supporting them through a difficult period, making their claim journey easy for them and building their loyalty.
* Be a good fact finder. You will ask the right questions, at the right time to get the customers claim processed in the most effective way, guiding them every step of the way through their claim journey.
* Be meticulous and detail orientated. Only through meticulously checking facts and asking questions will you be able to weigh up information and make accurate decisions about the claim.
* You will be flexible to work a variety of shift patters. Our opening Hours are Monday - Friday 8am-8pm and Saturdays 8am-1pm. Typically, you can expect a week of late shifts once every 7 weeks and a Saturday once every 6 weeks and this is continuously reviewed.

So if you passionately believe in putting the customer first, want to be part of a friendly, supportive and hard-working team then this could be the role for you. Full training with be provided and we will support you on your journey to learn about our customers and the Health Claims business.

Benefits include:

* 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
* Pension
* Bonus.

Earning Potential:

Typically, our Claims Consultants will progress from the starting salary of £17,000 to £17,500 on achieving the initial standard required following training. Your development will continue in the role over time. On average we see people reach an advanced level after 18 months, where salary would rise again to £19,250. You can then continue to excel in the role and become one of our experts in department earning £21,525. Beyond this, there are numerous opportunities within our business for people with the right skills, behaviours and attitude to be able to continue progression of their career aspirations
