Claim Specialist-Claim Planner

Requisition ID:  160720

The role of the claims scheduler, with a good grounding in planning and forensic schedule analysis, is a key part of a small team of claims specialists working closely in the preparation and/or assessment of claims for additional time and cost on a very demanding and challenging project. Reporting to the Senior Claims Schedule Analyst and in collaboration with the Senior Claims Manager and the other claims specialists on the team, the Claims Scheduler is seen as an important team player in achieving our challenging goals.


The candidate for this position must be a self-starter, able to work independently while remaining a team player, and capable of bringing potential scenarios and solutions to the table for group evaluation and scenario studies. The experience and skill-set of the candidate is to include the following:

  • Qualification in a construction discipline, engineering or quantity surveying, with requisite experience, including site based experience.

  • At least 10 years of relevant experience in planning, construction and engineering.

  • An effective communicator, oral and written.

  • Fully conversant with P6 8.3 with a minimum of 10 years Primavera related experience

  • Career experience must come out of the construction industry, including a good civil engineering exposure (horizontal, underground and bridge/viaduct construction; experience in rail and TBM tunneling an advantage); experience in building construction above and below ground a prerequisite.

  • Major contractor experience required and international exposure an advantage (especially Middle East)

  • At least five years working as a claims scheduler, mainly on the side of a contractor but consultant/client-side exposure is an advantage.

  • Able to carry out document research in a logical, structured manner. The project uses ACONEX.

  • Able to interface with construction team personnel (field) in the validation of evidence (background stories).

  • Highly conversant with delay impact analysis methodologies and with window analysis processes.

  • Familiar with concepts such as concurrent and parallel delays, excusable/non-excusable, compensable/non-compensable; case law and reference text (e.g. Pickavance, AACE, SCL) knowledge will be an advantage.

  • This is not a management position; this is a position for a hands-on specialist.


We offer:

  • Single status assignment, grading based on education and experience.

  • Competitive salary for the region.

  • Accommodation (company provided village based), utilities and transport.

  • Medical insurance.

  • Choice of leave options with cost of travel included in the remuneration package.

  • Discretionary bonus scheme.
