Heather Humphreys, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, has announced 120 new jobs at Liberty Insurance in Cavan over the next three years.
Minister Humphreys said:
“I am delighted to announce 120 new jobs at Liberty Insurance in Cavan over the next three years as the company expands its presence locally.
Vacancies are being advertised immediately and, in the first instance, the company is recruiting for new staff in the areas of administration, support work and management. The company has a strong connection to the county, and it is very positive to see them building on this further. They currently have 143 employees in Cavan, and today’s news means that they will be almost doubling that number in the coming period.
The creation of these new jobs is a great vote of confidence in what the local area has to offer in terms of talent, location and quality of life for employees. In addition, it is a testament to the company’s continued commitment to Cavan. I met with members of the senior team earlier this week, and they told me that they are particularly impressed by the rich pool of talent living locally. I was delighted to hear this although I was not surprised.
I am very pleased that the Government is supporting the company through IDA Ireland. Companies in the border region, both indigenous and foreign-owned, need every support with Brexit on the horizon, and the Government is committed to giving them that support.
I have no doubt that today’s announcement will be welcomed by all those living in the local area. I wish Liberty Insurance continued success in Cavan and look forward to seeing what the future holds. Anyone interested in applying for one of the new roles should visit www.libertyinsurance.ie for more information.
In the meantime, I will continue to work with the IDA to attract more business into the region.
Senator Joe O’Reilly said:
I welcome today’s announcement that Liberty Insurance is expanding its presence in Cavan leading to the creation of 120 jobs.
The Government has been working hard to make the border region an attractive and competitive location in which to do business, and that work is paying off.
The announcement will come as a boost to the Cavan town and the surrounding area. It will also provide more local jobs for people who want to work where they live.
