About Us

Urban Jungle is here to change the insurance industry for good.

We’re one of the fastest-growing businesses in the UK, and we’re taking on one of the biggest and most widely used categories in the world. Urban Jungle puts the customer at the heart of everything it does, uses the latest technology to make insurance simple, fair and affordable, and helps us give our customers much more confidence in their financial futures.

All of this has meant we’ve already been able to help more than 300,000 customers get better insurance and become one of the top-rated home insurance providers in the UK, rated Excellent on Trustpilot from over 9,000 reviews. We’ve raised over £30m in funding to date to help us with our mission.

We also have a huge focus on people and our planet. We’ve recently placed 1st in Tempo’s 2024 award for best startup to work for, and came top 10 in the Deloitte Fast50. We’re also proud to be a certified B-Corp, and a Carbon Neutral company.

And the best bit? This is just the beginning.

About The Role

We’re looking for a Senior Claims Associate to help us deliver a world-class experience for our customers.

As a Senior Claims Associate, you’ll play a vital role in our operations, talking directly to our claims management partners, ensuring smooth day-to-day operations for our customers, and working closely with various teams across the business to enhance the claims experience.

We put the customer at the heart of everything we do, so we’ll look to you to continually champion customer feedback within the business, ensuring that our claims process remains a reliable source of support for our customers when they need it most. Additionally, you’ll play a key role in building new claims operational functions and tackling exciting challenges, such as helping us improve key claims processes.

Here’s what you’ll get up to:

  • You’ll be a key part of our team that works closely with our claims management partners to get claims paid – this role is incredibly important, as it’s when our customers actually get to use their insurance.
  • Day-to-day, this looks like reviewing and investigating claims that are referred to us to make sure we are correctly applying the policy conditions and ensuring great claims service for customers.
  • You’ll also take the lead in revolutionising our claims processes, improving efficiency both internally and for our 175k+ customers.
  • Identify opportunities for bringing specific claims processes in-house, streamlining operations for quicker and smoother claims handling
  • Collaborate with our external partners to continuously improve our claims performance.

You’ve read this far! Here’s what we’re looking for from you:

  • 2+ years of relevant experience within claims. Although property or contents experience is preferred, it is not essential.
  • We are changing a huge financial industry – you are excited about being a part of this big challenge.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills to support our customers every step of the way.
  • A natural problem-solver with a “test and learn” mentality.
  • A high level of attention-to-detail.
  • Super organised and comfortable multitasking to tight deadlines.
  • Not afraid to get stuck in and willing to roll up your sleeves to get customer and business problems solved when necessary.
  • Above all, you’ll care passionately about delivering an exceptional experience to our customers.

These requirements are a guide as to what we’re looking for, but if you don’t have all of the skills listed above, that’s okay! Please don’t let that hold you back from applying if the role excites you.
