This Insurance Specialist Legal Counsel role will enable you to utilise your experience in a new and progressive context.

Our client is a market-leading company with offices in Haywards Heath, Manchester, and abroad.

This Specialist Insurance Legal Counsel role will include:

  • Reviewing, negotiating, and drafting all manner of agreements and policies, including advising on delegated insurance arrangements, distribution deals, and complex claims queries
  • Dealing with sporadic queries from across the business, including key stakeholders such as the Underwriting, Finance, Tax, and Claims teams

Ideally, you will have:

  • At least 5 years of post-qualification experience
  • A strong background in insurance distribution, with specific expertise in the contexts of both broker and insurer
  • A desire to work in a fast-paced, dynamic team
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to advocate across all levels of the organisation
  • Familiarity working with a regulated market would be advantageous.

This company recognises that the boundary between home and work is often blurred, so their benefits reflect this. They’re committed to celebrating their employees and encourage them to make the most of benefits such as private medical insurance, a performance-based bonus, and a wellbeing platform in order to bring their true selves to work.

Please get in touch if you have any questions regarding reasonable adjustments and accommodations.
