Costs Negotiator

  • Work from home four days per week
  • Reduced-hour week
  • Fantastic benefits package, including private medical

A market-leading national insurance law firm is looking for a Costs Negotiator with at least 12 months’ experience in a similar role to join its team in Greater Manchester and embark on a successful career in legal costs.

This is a super flexible role and you’ll be able to work from home up to four days a week – this is an exceptional opportunity, as many firms are scaling back on the amount of homeworking on offer.

The firm is one of the country’s leading insurance litigation law firms and routinely represents household-name insurer clients. While it has offices across the UK, it is headquartered in the North West – so you’ll be at the centre of the action.

The firm takes a “people first” approach, promoting a healthy work/life balance through a reduced-hours week (35 hours) and flexible/home working, so you’ll be able to fit your work around your personal commitments.

The firm invests in its team members from day one, starting with a structured on-boarding programme and continuing via a structured development and progression plan.

Pay is competitive and its benefits package is as you’d expect of a national firm and includes private medical insurance, critical illness cover, access to a virtual GP and several high street discounts.

In the role, you’ll manage your own caseload, conducting file reviews to formulate an initial costs strategy, provide comprehensive advice to clients, commence early telephone negotiations with the other side and liaise, as required, with insurers throughout the life of the file.
