About you:

To be able to hit the ground running you'll need experience of handling MOJ and non MOJ Claims with an understanding of personal injury litigation. You'll be dealing with key internal and external stakeholders on a frequent basis and will need well developed communication and presentation skills and the ability to influence at all levels and cross-functionally.

It's a fast paced high volume environment and so you will need strong attention to detail, accuracy and the ability to thrive under pressure with good planning, time management, prioritisation and organisation skills.
