The caring critical thinker

What’s in it for you?

What makes us a different kind of employer? We WANT you to have work-life balance, it’s in our DNA. No overnight shifts, no weekends, paid time off to take care of yourself or the ones you love and because we’re in the health business – paid benefits and perks to keep you at your very best.

We’re looking for a Bilingual Disability Claims Specialist who is interested in helping people; who understands that no two cases are alike, and can manage relationships, identify opportunities, solve problems and make decisions using the right interventions to support recovery and return to work. Our award-winning culture, team leaders who really care, unmatched training and support are all dedicated to ensure you are set up of success.

Your every day with us:

The insurance business isn’t just about claims - it’s about relationships too. No one wants to be in a situation where they are sick or injured and require time off work, but sometimes the unexpected happens. It’s in those moments that our members put their trust in us to provide the support they need to navigate their recovery. They aren’t just looking for someone to process their claim; they are looking for someone who is empathetic and will work with the resources available to ensure they are receiving appropriate care and to help facilitate a safe and sustainable return to work plan when the time is right.

Working with a qualified team of high-energy people just like yourself, you would manage a block of short or long-term disability cases. You would be responsible for every part of the disability claim process, from the initial decision, to building the right case management plan, identifying the supports needed, monitoring treatment and achievement of the plan and working with the member, employer and providers involved in the case.

Can you imagine the potential to help others when you can leverage a team of passionate experts every day to ensure you are doing everything you can to make a difference in your claimants life?
