To be advised

With in-house opportunities becoming increasingly rarer in the market, Wadkins Associates is excited to support a leading P&I Club as they look to grow their Japan office.

The position is for a Senior Claims Manager, with your responsibilities split between handling complex legal P&I / FDD work and managing a team of junior claims handlers.

On the claims side, you will be responsible for investigating, assessing, negotiating and resolving some of the more complicated and high value P&I or Defence claims.

However, the bulk of your work will be providing leadership, coaching and member management. Your main responsibility will be building a team that is professional, efficient and able to deliver market leading claims and advisory services to Club Members. In addition to that, you will represent the Club when meeting new Members or working with existing ones.

The key draws of this position include:

  • Leadership opportunity. Senior positions in Clubs are rare and highly sought after due to the low staff turnover.
  • Prestige. Our client is well-regarded in the market and boasts a significant global tonnage.
  • Member facing. This opportunity allows for significant involvement alongside the underwriters in terms of business development and Member retention.

Due to the complexity and leadership requirements of the work, you will need to be common law qualified, with at least 5 PQE with a shipping focus. An ability to display leadership experience will be a strong advantage.
