Online insurance provider Chill.ie has announced the creation of 100 new jobs over the next three years at its south Dublin base. The new jobs will be created as the company plans to grow online sales of a range of insurance products. Chill Insurance was launched as the internet arm of insurance broker Power Lynch and Associates, a 40-year-old business.

Chill.ie expects the volume of internet business to double over the next year alone as customers shop online for cheaper insurance deals. In view of this, the company says it will hire 100 staff over the next three years. Recruitment will begin immediately for a mixture of insurance, technology and back office roles to respond to an increased volume of business and higher traffic through the company's website and its Dublin call centre. The company currently employs 60 staff, but this is expected to grow to 160 by 2014.
