Job Description:

The Role

The role is to assist our claims team when handling insurance claims from customers across both of our brands – Yellow Jersey and Pedal Cover. It will involve taking calls from customers before, during and after submitting claims via our on-line portal, as well as maintaining internal and external databases. This position will lead to a full time claims handler role as experience develops, reviewing all necessary documentation provided, to then replace the bike or parts via our extensive trade and partner network. 

A secondary aspect of the role will involve stripping bikes to sell salvaged parts, as well as building up new bikes to ship to customers, complete with a pre-delivery inspection (PDI). This is varied role; the candidate must be comfortable wearing many hats and keen to get stuck in.

We’re looking for more great characters to bolster our growing team; someone who enjoys talking to people, who takes pride in their work, who takes initiative, who love bikes and wants to stay in the bike industry (perhaps just not in a workshop forever) with a solid career prospects ahead of them.

  • Numerate with experience in MS Office/Google sheets
  • Able to understand and process information quickly
  • Process sales orders and reconcile receipts and invoices
  • Literate with the ability to tailor communication suitable for the appropriate audience
  • High levels of attention to detail.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Assist Claims Specialists and Claims Lead in processing and handling cycling insurance claims
  • Strip bikes for salvaged parts, maintaining accurate inventory
  • Build up new bikes, performing pre-delivery inspection (PDI) – hands-on bike time is likely 20% of role
  • Assist with sale of salvage items
  • Maintain claim file records on Claims Underwriting Exchange (CUE)
  • Maintain accurate records and computer files
  • Answer incoming calls, emails and social media enquiries, dealing with these through to a successful outcome
  • Provide an efficient and effective service to customers, understanding their needs and requirements and working to exceed these wherever possible
  • Assist in processing claims efficiently and fairly in a manner that supports the customer and reflects the company’s brand values
  • Build durable relationships with colleagues, clients and third party suppliers
  • Report on the status of your tasks regularly and update team members with the status of claims, quotes, renewals, accounting issues and potential fraud and raise within the appropriate channels
