Alun graduated with an honours degree in civil engineering in 1987 and worked in construction until 1993 qualifying as a chartered quantity surveyor. I then worked as a loss adjuster abroad and in the UK until 2010 and qualified as an associate and then a fellow of the institute. I then worked as the head of construction claims for a major London market broker until 2015. During that period I qualified as a fellow of the chartered institute of arbitrators. I returned to loss adjusting with Cunningham Lindsey at the start of 2016 and have been working on major claims for London market insurers in Scotland and elsewhere from then to date.
