Property Claims Manager

Argo Group International Holdings Ltd. Alpharetta, GA
Honor the Promise.

At Argo Group, that is what our US Claims team of approximately 200 employees does each and every day. When the unexpected happens, our Adjusters honor the promise of our insurance policy and do our part to get our insured back to business. With paramount integrity and technical excellence, our Claims team delivers superior financial results to all stakeholders of the claim. We hire the best people, so we can deliver the best result.

We are looking for an exceptional Commercial Property Claims Manager to join our team and work in one of offices in Alpharetta (GA), Chicago (IL), Denver (CO), Irvine (CA), Peoria (IL), Portland (OR), New York City (NY), Richmond (VA), San Antonio (TX), San Francisco (CA), Scottsdale (AZ) or Springfield (MA).

So what's it like to work on the Argo Group US Team?

Well, it's different, and, quite frankly, not for everyone. Unlike many TPAs and some other carriers, we do not treat our claims or our claims professionals as a commodity. The work we offer is challenging and diversified. Our Adjusters and Managers are empowered to exercise their independent discretion and, within broad limits and authority, be creative in developing solutions and treat each case as the unique situation it is. We have a very flat organizational structure, so that our Adjusters and Managers have more opportunities to interact with our senior management team, especially when it comes to presenting case conferencing on large losses. Our entire claims team works in a collaborative nature to expeditiously handle claims. We offer a work environment that inspires innovation and is open to employee suggestions, even offering a reward for the best creative idea each quarter. We allow fully performing employees the flexibility to work from their home up to two days a week once they have been fully trained. While we work hard, a work/life balance is just as important so that our employees are fully focused while working.

Sound like a team you would like to join?

First you'll want to make sure you embody our core values as they are the key to our success:

* We desire to excel

* We are committed to our clients and to each other

* We have the courage to do the right thing

* We apply original thinking

Second, you'll want to make sure the challenge sounds interesting to you. In this role you will:

* Be a technical expert and resource to a team of approximately six Adjusters reporting to you.

* Provide direction, leadership and training to in-house first party commercial claims adjusters so that the department can meet its Critical Success Goals and the business unit can meet both growth and profitability targets.

* Support a best-in-class claim management program and recruit and retain claims professionals that consistently demonstrate appropriate technical expertise, maturity and a professional commitment to excellence and customer service.

What will you need to be successful here?

* A minimum of eight years' experience adjudicating first party commercial property and time element claims with extensive experience with exposure of $100,000 or more in both admitted markets but also for excess and surplus lines of business, including at least 3 years in a Claims Supervisory capacity.

* A relentless desire to continually update your skill level through continuing education and self-development (we're a bit fanatical about this, so you should be too). So you should already have a bachelor's degree.

* We work in a fast paced environment that is evolving constantly; so flexibility and the ability to thrive in change are important to be successful here. Oh, as is being resourceful on your own.

* Having the right people in the right roles at all times is probably the most important thing you'll do here. So a strong focus on coaching and developing people so that they realize their full potential, ensuring everyone is on track to meet their goals, and the ability to identify, attract and hire talented people is crucial.

* With lots of tasks competing for your time, excellent time management and prioritization skills are important.

* Being able to communicate with empathy is crucial.

* A strong focus on execution in getting things done right. We are looking for people with a proven ability to consistently produce and deliver expected results to all stakeholders.

* An appreciation and passion for strong claim management.

What else would be helpful for me to be successful here?

The following would be helpful for you to currently possess, but if you don't, no worries. We can help you learn these things after you start working for us.

* Having industry specific designations is helpful, though not required.

* The ability to use QuotaShare.

What will we provide to you?

* An opportunity to be your best and work with talented and inventive professionals at a Company Forbes magazine named to its list of America's 50 Most Trustworthy Financial Companies for the last two years and that A.M. Best has rated an 'A' (Excellent) for 13 consecutive years.

* An attractive Total Rewards package that includes:

* Base pay, profit sharing, and some instant cash in the form of a hiring bonus.

* Comprehensive benefits designed to protect and enhance your life and your dependents' lives by way of health and wellness plans, life insurance, a matching 401(k) Plan, generous PTO and an opportunity to become a shareholder at a 15% discount.

* Argo Academy, a digital and instructor-led platform that helps us focus on continuous learning and which, by the way, got us named in Training magazine as one of the 2017 Training Top 125 Companies!

* Opportunities to support your local community though various outreach programs or by matching your gift to charitable causes by 150%.

* An Employee Referral program, that resulted in 30% of all new hires last year.
