Premium Auditor

SAIF Corporation
Bend, Medford, Eugene


“Close enough” may be fine for horseshoes. But in the world of premium audit, precise adherence to rules and regulations is what counts.


As a premium auditor at SAIF, you’ll spend much of your time out in the field, helping employers better manage their records so that all Oregonians benefit from a fiscally strong workers’ compensation system. Numbers are a big part of the job. But so are people. Every day, you’ll have the chance to interact with businesses of all shapes and sizes—from mom-and-pop shops to major corporations.


To do the job well requires an in-depth knowledge of accounting principles and industry procedures. But you’ll also need excellent writing and speaking skills to build strong customer relationships and communicate audit decisions.
