The CII has launched a dedicated professional body for people who work in claims insurance, with a view to improving consumer confidence in the sector.
The Society of Claims Professionals (SoCP) aims to raise the level of knowledge and technical competence in the sector -- and in turn, bolster public trust.
The new society will function as a forum for the advancement of new ideas, career development, and professional qualifications. In doing so, it will play a leading role in how the profession addresses some of the challenges ahead, including digitalisation and how to use data effectively.
The society aims to encourage a diverse and inclusive membership, with everyone working in the claims sector eligible to join its only professional body, irrespective of whether they hold an existing qualification from the CII or elsewhere.
Following the launch of the Society of Insurance Brokers, the new SoCP will be joined later this year by a further society serving the needs of professionals in the underwriting sector.
