With Lead roles in Cargo becoming increasingly rare, we are excited to be instructed by an industry leading international transport company to find a senior claims associate for their Singapore office.
Our client has more than a century’s experience of shipping goods internationally. As part of their growth initiative, they are looking to expand their team with the addition of an experienced claims and insurance lead.
Your work will primarily revolve around cargo, managing the timely and cost-efficient resolution of claims and litigation against our client by insurers, customers, opposing counsel and recovery agents. In addition, you will be managing vessel incidents with P&I Clubs and Hull and Machinery Underwriters.
Your management role will see you assist our client’s head of insurance and claims in supervising a claims team based in India. You will also be appointing, instructing and managing our client’s lawyers for the relevant litigations. In addition, you will be responsible in compiling the relevant quarterly reports and reducing the legal exposures faced by our client in their course of work.
While you need not be legally qualified, a bachelor’s degree in maritime studies is highly desirable. Since this is a senior position, you will also have at least 5 years of working experience in cargo claims management with shipowners, managers or P&I Clubs. A good working knowledge about the maritime laws and conventions involving cargo liabilities would advantageous.
If you would like to find out more about this opportunity, please call James Candappa at +65 3138 1778.
