There are no specified entry requirements for loss adjuster jobs, although a BTEC diploma, HND/HNC or degree in a relevant subject can be useful.

Employers often provide structured training schemes, encouraging study for a professional qualification through the Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters or the Chartered Insurance Institute. Employers vary from specialist loss adjusting firms to insurance companies who maintain a team of loss adjusters to respond to client claims. Employment for loss adjuster jobs is countrywide.
With experience, the loss adjuster may take on increased responsibility and deal with more complex claims. There may be opportunities to progress into management positions or to move into related areas, eg surveying, claims management or join fraud investigation teams.
