Are you recently qualified with a degree in Maritime Law or have other relevant maritime background and are interested in working in the field of marine insurance? You might be our next trainee in Team Gothenburg.
Our operation is divided into four teams, and one of them is located in Gothenburg. Each team is responsible for members (clients) within a certain geographical area and delivers top quality services in relation to the insurance classes offered. The claims executives are responsible for investigating and handling claims and for providing advice to members regarding insurance cover and nautical as well as legal matters related to the insurance classes offered.
As a Trainee, you will assist the claims executives generally, and you will be introduced to and practice in the following areas:
- P&I Rules
