Career Opportunity: Cadet Loss Adjuster

Are you starting your final year of university and unsure what path to take? Looking for an experience-rich part-time job to make ends meet? A lover of monthly pizza parties? If you just mentally ticked all three boxes, then FT Adjusting would love to hear from you!



FTA is a loss adjusting firm specialising in construction and engineering insurance claims. We produce cutting edge analysis and advice covering the broadest range of claims in this field. Drawing from a diverse background of skills and experience, we deliver superior and unrivalled service for our clients. We have ‘niche-pertise’, and we’re proud of it!



As a Cadet Loss Adjuster, your role will involve assisting our adjusters with the examination, negotiation, and resolution of claims. You will be mentored by one of FTA’s senior Loss Adjusters (they don’t bite!), and once you have gained sufficient experience you will investigate claims on your own.

Your day-to-day tasks will vary, but at a glance you might be called upon to undertake work in respect:

  • Public liability claims (legal liability arising from onsite activities)
  • Contract work claims (damage to contract works from accidents, natural disasters, etc.)
  • Professional indemnity claims (high profile and large monetary value, involving in-depth forensic research and examination)


The work involved includes application of investigative lines of enquiry to establish causation, analysis of costs,  documentation control, compiling and controlling spreadsheets in relation to claim information, conducting enquiries with insureds and third parties in relation to claims incidents. This can range from a minor theft of tools to major claims relating to infrastructure. Claim values can range from anywhere from under $20,000 to in excess of $100m.

You are on the verge of finishing your studies: you might have a background in engineering or law, but you’re equally welcome to join us from another discipline if you think you have what it takes!

You can commit 3 days (22.5 working hours) a week during the uni semester, and full-time hours outside it, including full-time during January and February 2018. We’re pretty flexible, as long as you talk to us.

You’re happy to get out and about for site visits (for which we’ll pay – score!). You have a current driver’s license and preferably your own vehicle.

You’re comfortable at a computer, on the phone, and in face-to-face meetings. You can organise yourself and your time. Above all, you’re eager to learn and ready to dive straight into work!



This is a fantastic opportunity to earn a salary and begin your career with one of Australia’s leading niche loss adjusting firms. To apply, please email Skye Jamieson at with your:

Applications close 18 December 2017.  We look forward to reading yours soon!
