The role

Working as one of four Complex Caseworkers you will manage a caseload of around 20 complex claims to our Compensation Fund, analysing and investigating cases which are high profile, high value or contentious investment schemes. Working to tight KPIs you will maintain timely case progression, whilst not compromising on customer service and quality.

Processing the claims will require you to plan and formulate an approach to often unprecedented circumstances, conduct investigations, and communicate difficult and technical messages to different audiences.

You will draft first-rate reports, make appropriate and justified recommendations in a consistent way and be confident presenting the rationale behind your decisions to senior stakeholders. You will also handle straightforward appeals.

Using your ability to build relationships, communicate effectively and work collaboratively, you will liaise with relevant teams in the SRA to share information to protect consumers.

What we are looking for

  • Experience of complex case management
  • Strong regulatory / investigation experience
  • Experience of making proactive decisions making sound conclusions based on clear rationale demonstrating a good sense of risk-based judgement
  • Ability to draft high quality reports with recommendations to deadline
  • Ability to vary communication to the audience and explain technical information simply

This position will ordinarily be based in our office in central Birmingham, but the successful candidate is likely to be on-boarded remotely and working from home initially. We will be closely following government guidance about returning to the workplace to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff.
