Job Description

This is an exciting corporate services role ideal for law students seeking short term exposure to an office environment.

The client is seeking law students with 3/4 days per week availability during July and August.

The position here involves management of a portfolio of sports/ personal injury insurance claims. The successful candidate will bring time management and critical thinking skills.

Claims roles are a great stepping stone for law students who have strong academics but lack legal/ corporate experience.

No insurance experience is required with full training to be provided.

Your Duties

  • Interpret policy wordings and apply them in line with the terms of the Insurance Policy.
  • Make claim decisions and recommendations as necessary
  • Establish adequate and accurate claims reserves
  • Settle claims within company guidelines and delegated authority
  • Attend internal and external training courses to enhance own professional development and technical knowledge.

When these insurance claims become complex, they are referred to a number of leading Australian law firms for management/ advice. You as Claims Executive become the law firm client in this regard.

About You:

  • Third year or above
  • Good academic standing (credit average minimum)
  • Available to work 3/4 days per week for at least the next 8 weeks

While this is a short term project, past experience suggests that paralegals who make a good impression may be invited back to work on other projects in future.
