Our people are everything to us. The way they deliver exceptional experiences every day for our customers, for their colleagues. The way they own what they do. Their 'Why's it like that?' curiosity. How they always think of others and work together to get things done. For us, for you, make do will never do. Good enough? Not even close. Come and do the best work of your life alongside lovely colleagues. Come to Saga. 

…And right now, we are looking for a 3rd Party Claims Customer Experience Lead to work in our Product, Proposition and Distribution department in our Insurance of the business at an exciting time in Saga’s history. As a Group, Saga is taking to the seas in our brand new, luxury cruise ships, leading the market with innovative insurance and financial products. 

You will be responsible for sharing trends and insights periodically, cross-functionally and with underwriters, and foster a productive dialogue with their customer experience and claims management teams to sustainably improve outcomes for our customers.

You will also facilitate the tactical resolution of individual claims journey pain points through reviewing claims hot alerts and collaborating with the relevant internal and external claims and customer relations teams on individual customer cases and complaints as well as work cross-functionally to close the loop on all claims experience related insights, including conduct risk, and summarising overarching themes for ILT and Board presentations. 

And in return, you can look forward to all the responsibility and involvement of an integral role, providing you with a rewarding and fast-paced career with an excellent benefits package.  

So, if this is of interest to you then we would be keen to hear from you!

Role Responsibility

As a 3rd Party Claims Customer Experience Lead your top 5 responsibilities will be: 

  • Regularly accessing, gathering, and analysing relevant customer satisfaction scores and data (e.g., tNPS, CSAT, VOC scores and verbatim comments, complaints, call listening) mainly focusing on the claims journey, by underwriter, for my assigned products.
  • Fostering a cross-functional dialogue and attending relevant internal meetings and forums to complement the analytical view with feedback from colleagues on claims customer outcome and relevant business impact.
  • Drawing and presenting on customer experience trends (both best practices and areas of improvement) reporting on customer feedback and developing action plans to drive improved performance.
  • Working with my assigned underwriters in the execution of such action plans (e.g., claims journey pain points) leveraging on internal resources (e.g., customer journey team) and the underwriter’s customer experience and claims management teams to bring strong expertise into the dialogue.
  • Working alongside product teams to suggest the necessary amendments to the products to improve customer outcome at claims stage; linking in with marketing and operations to suggest the necessary amendments to the online and offline journeys to improve customer outcome at claims stage. This relationship works both ways, so I also contribute to product, marketing, and operations agendas, by sharing relevant claims customer outcome information, stories and customer feedback, as well as acting as owner of relevant projects and initiatives directly aimed at improving customer outcome, both at claims stage and as preventative measures.
