National firm of loss adjusters is looking to strengthen its financial risks adjusting team through the appointment of an additional Chartered Accountant to operate from a base in Birmingham. You will be required to handle a challenging portfolio of losses with a financial element to them, including business interruption, loss of stock and occasionally more specialist areas such as fidelity guarantee or professional indemnity. It is absolutely essential that you commit to train as a loss adjuster, as our client is not looking to establish an alternative forensic accounting practice. You must also commit to taking the Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters examinations (CILA) which, upon successful completion, will open many doors for your future personal development.

Candidates must essentially be either ACA or ACCA qualified, and our client is specifically looking for individuals who have attained that qualification within the last 2-3 years, but are keen to find an alternative career path to use this knowledge. It is also fundamental that your mind-set is geared towards training as a loss adjuster, and not simply to being a forensic accountant within an alternative environment. Our client has a market-leading accountancy team, and will provide an outstanding opportunity for you to develop your career through an excellent training/mentoring programme and a quality caseload. Initial basic salary up to £50,000 plus bonus, car allowance, pension, medical care and 25 days holiday, but there is an excellent opportunity for you to achieve rapid salary increases pending your development as a loss adjuster.
