Claims Handler

MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradespeople through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.)

We recently launched MyBuilder Plus, an exciting new product that gives homeowners the opportunity to insure their job, providing peace of mind that work will be done right, guaranteed. We’re looking for experienced insurance claims handlers who want to join our dedicated team and help shape the future of MyBuilder Plus.

Your role

As a Claims Handler you will be responsible for helping our homeowners achieve the project of their dreams. When things go wrong, you’ll act as the marketplace referee - listening to both sides of the story, remaining impartial and fair with a view to helping our customers resolve their differences.

However, not all relationships can be salvaged, and that’s where our guarantee comes into play. You’ll need to consider the homeowner’s claim and, if the project is covered, you’ll step in and ensure the homeowner gets the great outcome that they deserve. With the support of our in-house experts, you’ll find a new tradesperson to deliver the job - and help the homeowner keep the project on track through to completion.

Responsibilities include:

  • Speaking with all parties involved in a dispute and attempting conciliation
  • Providing clear and straightforward advice that guides all parties to a timely resolution
  • Proactively helping homeowners find new tradespeople - to ensure their guaranteed project is delivered as quickly as possible
  • Helping homeowners manage their projects through to completion
  • Assessing and resolving formal claims & complaints raised by homeowners, liaising with our insurance partners and regulators where needed
  • Comprehensively documenting all case information and records
  • Managing your own varied & complex caseload
  • Educating our customers to promote a positive experience of using MyBuilder
  • Identifying & escalating high-risk trade accounts for further investigation by our Trade Quality team
  • Helping Government organisations - such as Trading Standards and the Financial Ombudsman Service - with their investigations
  • Developing and improving internal policies, procedures and tools
