Liberty Insurance, which provides motor and home insurance along with commercial insurance to the business sector, is going to create 120 new jobs in Cavan, over the next three years. The employer is looking for people for administrative, support and management level positions. Liberty Insurance will, to a large extent, carry out appraisal work for motor claims from the US, by making photo estimations. The expenditure is supported by IDA Ireland.

The insurance provider has been operating in Ireland since 2012, after the acquisition of Quinn Insurance. Currently, the company employs around 400 people in Cavan and Dublin.
