DUBLIN, Monday, 10th October, 2011:  Following the creation of 50 new jobs in Ireland announced in July this year, Allianz Worldwide Care has announced a further 128 positions, to be filled immediately at the company’s headquarters in Park West.

Welcoming today’s announcement Barry O’Leary, IDA Ireland CEO said ‘We are delighted that Allianz has decided to create these additional jobs in Dublin. Allianz is a leading international health insurance company which has been going from strength to strength in Ireland. It is encouraging that today’s announcement follows a flow in recent weeks of other non-US investments including arvato (part of Bertelsmann Group), Biotrin Group (division of Dia Sorin), Caci, the creditor insurance subsidiary of Crédit Agricole Assurances, HCL from India and Japan Research Institute, the specialist IT subsidiary of Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.’

The company is looking to fill a variety of roles in claims, helpline, client services, medical services, credit control, finance, marketing, sales support, account management, project management, actuarial and IT. Many of these roles require multi-language skills. While the company will consider applicants from a range of industry backgrounds, those with insurance/financial services experience, in particular within health, life and disability cover, are desirable.

Allianz Worldwide Care, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Allianz SE, specialises in providing international health insurance for employees, individuals and their dependents, wherever they are in the world.

Claire Cusack, Head of Human Resources at Allianz Worldwide Care believes that the scale and urgency of the company’s recruitment requirements warrants hosting their own jobs fair in Dublin this week. “We are inviting anyone interested in joining a leading multinational company to come and see us at the Clarion Hotel, IFSC next Thursday, 13th October.  We will be providing details about the positions available and accepting CVs between the hours of 3pm and 9pm.
