Wednesday 9th October 2019, Cavan: Liberty Insurance today announced plans to expand its operations in Cavan, creating up to 120 roles over the next three years.  The effort is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

Liberty has established a new motor insurance claims servicing function in Cavan to help support Liberty Mutual’s global business. This operation will handle a portion of appraisal work for motor insurance from the U.S.– including expanding use of photo estimations to expedite the claims process for U.S customers.

Liberty Insurance is currently recruiting applicants for administrative, support and management level positions in Cavan.  

“We continually seek opportunities to enhance our business and service models to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers,” said Tom McIlduff, CEO of Liberty Insurance “This is an important development for our business operation in Ireland and I’m delighted to see that our expertise locally will support Liberty Mutual’s motor insurance customers around the world.”

Welcoming today’s announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said,”I am delighted that Liberty Insurance is expanding in Cavan. Liberty Mutual has a strong connection to the county and the creation of new jobs is a great vote of confidence in what Cavan and the wider border region has to offer.  I am delighted that the Government is supporting Liberty Mutual through the IDA in Ireland and I have no doubt that today’s announcement will be welcomed by all those living in the local area.”

IDA Ireland Executive Director Mary Buckley said: “Attracting investments to regional locations remains a key part of IDA Ireland’s strategy. This news that Liberty Insurance is expanding its operations in Cavan with the creation of new jobs is most welcome and will be a huge boost to Cavan and the wider North West region. It demonstrates serious continued commitment by the US parent company Liberty Mutual Insurance Group to the Cavan location. I wish Liberty Insurance continued success at its Cavan and Dublin locations in Ireland.
