Job Description

A leading Yegal client is seeking law students / graduates to join their claims team on a short term initial contract.


This position is ideal for someone who might be lacking corporate office experience on their CV or close to graduation.

A claims role is also a positive choice for someone who might be considering a volunteer role with a law firm given this is a paid role with a company who is a client of a number of leading law firms.


Experience in financial services, law or insurance viewed favourably but not essential.


Claims roles are often a bridge between university graduation and law firm roles long term.


This position involves the management of a portfolio of common law liability claims.


When these claims are complex you will refer them to external law firms for advice.


Your Duties


• End to end management of insurance claims and acting as an advocate for the client throughout the claims process
• Interpreting and advising on policy coverage and applicable policy terms, conditions and exclusions
• Ensure compliance with relevant statutory guidelines and standards
• Escalating claims as needed and working with senior staff to strategically manage difficult and complex claims, with a view of securing optimal outcomes.


Your Skills


• Critical thinking and the ability to interpret/ dissect information
• Excellent analytical and negotiation skills
• Strong organisational skills
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Strong customer focus
• Advanced attention to detail skills
• Ability to build a strong rapport and working relationships with stakeholders
• Strong outcome focus
• Ability to juggle multiple tasks and keep within timeframes to meet customer needs and satisfaction.


The ideal paralegal is available full time for 3 months from 20 November 2023.


(Office shutdown for Xmas is expected to be 2 weeks between Dec 22 – Jan 7).


Candidates with 4 day per week availability may also be considered.


As with all Yegal roles, paralegals who make a good first impression are often asked to extend though this cannot be guaranteed.


Shortlisted candidates will be invited to video interview as a next step.
