Recoveries Claims Handler or Paralegal - The marine, aviation and transport team of this leading 'top tier' law firm is looking for a claims handler or paralegal to handle a pre-litigated caseload of subrogated claims for a number of global marine cargo and aviation clients. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in 'big ticket' commercial insurance work working for a range of global clients.


  • Job Title: Claims Handler / Paralegal
  • Location: Manchester
  • Salary: £20,000 - £24,000
  • Reports to: Head of Marine Claims
  • Previous Experience: Broad range of experience considered including general recoveries and commercial insurance and subrogated recoveries. Hiring managers will also consider those with MOJ and OIC Portal experience as well as other areas of claims handling.

Marine and cargo - an exciting and challenging role

Our client has developed a highly specialised pre-litigation team handling highly complex subrogated recovery work for some of the largest global marine, aviation and transportation companies. Matters might include:

  • Shipping accidents at sea and dry dock - the team are involved in some of the largest shipping collisions and dry dock accidents.
