Previous to dealing with EU claims, I had been dealing with claims for CarTrawler for one year, customers would log their claim online and we would check the details and the documents, requesting further documents, settling claims, answering the phone, and queries by email.
I was also working as a claims handler, assisting customers who had broken down abroad; and also dealing with home emergency claims.

My main duties were: training and coaching staff, allocating and checking their work, motivating my team, giving them feedback about their work, dealing with problems either from staff or customers. I ensured that customers received a great service, that all duties were done. I made the weekly rota about duties, I organised coffee and lunch breaks; I also placed orders, and did the stocktake. I also had regular meetings with the manager to inform her of any issues, staff performance, or requests. I also worked alongside my team, making Costa Coffee drinks, making sure the drinks were made up to Costa standards, serving customers, opening or closing the Coffee Bar.
