  Major Tasks:
  1. Ensure that the legal liability of the Council is adequately covered by insurance in respect
  of the wide variety of activities it undertakes, either on its own or in partnership with other
  outside bodies and organisation.

  2. Manage and assist in the administration of the County Council’s claims handling process.

  3. Provide responses to all insurance related queries raised by Members, officers and the
  public.

  4. Maintain and update the computerised claims recording system (LACHS) and the
  Council’s property insurance database.

  5. Produce information and management data from the above systems as required.

  6. Advise the County Council on risk management and all associated issues.

  7. Attend appropriate meetings and events and represent the Directorate and the County
  Council.

  8. Conduct annual renewal negotiations for the placement of the Council’s insurance
  portfolio, including placing the business out to tender at appropriate intervals, in compliance

  with internal and external 'customers' when using any communication media including
  telephone, email and face to face.
