Aviation Insurance Hull Surveyor & Adjuster – Miami, FL – USA

You will be based in CTA’s Regional Office in Miami, Florida, from where our primary claims handling service focuses on large commercial airlines, cargo operators, regional carriers and MROs in the Americas regions (North, South, Central America and the Caribbean). We also handle claims involving government, military, helicopter and corporate operators.

Applicants must have a strong Aerospace engineering/maintenance background with technical and supervisory/management experience on aircraft and engine maintenance and structural repairs primarily on large commercial aircraft (i.e. Airline / MRO background). Additional experience in the field of business or general aviation aircraft and helicopters would be an advantage.

The applicant should hold a current FAA A&P licence (or equivalent aircraft maintenance engineer’s licence) with at least 15 years’ experience in the Industry. Pilot experience would be useful, but is not essential.

The role of the Hull Surveyor & Adjuster involves considerable client liaison, demands first class communication and analytical skills and a confident personality. Primarily, you will investigate and report on behalf of global aviation Insurers on aviation incidents / accidents that are subject to an insurance claim in order to provide factual reports and recommendations for Insurers to consider policy coverage, claim acceptance, settlement, and recovery/salvage. You will be part of a ‘Go Team’ prepared to deploy at short notice to assist in the event of major accidents and incidents and will frequently carry out on-site aircraft damage assessments and attend engine teardown inspections.

You may also be required to provide aviation technical services and expertise as needed for various insurance related customers. A full copy of the job description will be provided at the appropriate time.

Fluency in written English is essential for the preparation of both technical and non-technical reports. The ability to speak Spanish would be very useful, as would overseas work experience and accident investigation experience. You must also be prepared to travel overseas, often at short notice. The ability to work both as part of a team and independently is essential.

Extensive training will be provided to applicants new to the aviation insurance business in order to assist their development in this challenging, interesting, and rewarding occupation.

For these positions we offer a competitive salary and benefits package commensurate with the applicant’s technical qualifications and experience.
