Aviva announces which jobs will go

INSURANCE giant Aviva has revealed where the axe will fall on its workforce in Ireland.

The company said that employees won't lose their jobs until March next year at the earliest.

Aviva's general insurance business will be worst affected by the plans, with 530 workers to go at this division.

This sector currently employs more than 1,000 who cater for home and car-insurance clients.

A further 200 are to go at the life-and-pensions division, which currently employs 660 people.

And it is expected that up to 300 of the remaining positions in this division may be outsourced.

However, the company has indicated that jobs at the health-insurance division, which employs up to 300 staff, are safe.
