Liberty Insurance is to create up to 120 jobs in Cavan over the next three years.

The group 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 United States, in a bit to expedite the claims process for US customers.

The company is currently recruiting applicants for administrative, support and management level positions in Cavan. 

Tom McIlduff, CEO of Liberty Insurance, said the expansion was “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.”

Operating in Ireland since 2012, Liberty provides motor and home insurance to the Irish consumer market along with commercial insurance to the business sector.

The group, which is a sponsor of the All-Ireland Camogie Championships, has approximately 400 employees at offices in Cavan and Dublin.

Welcoming the expansion – which is being supported by IDA Ireland – Minister for Business Heather Humphreys said it was “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,” Minister Humphreys added.

Liberty Insurance is part of Liberty Mutual, which was established in 1912 in Boston. Liberty Mutual is the fifth largest global property and casualty insurer based on gross written premium in 2018.
