ALLIANZ HAS ANNOUNCED plans to grow its 700-strong workforce in Ireland over the coming months.

The health insurer will create 100 new positions at its new Dublin offices at the Park West Business Campus.

The jobs will be in areas ranging from underwriting and pricing to client services.

It has already created 74 separate positions this year.

Allianz said in a statement that the workforce is expanding due to a number of recent ‘client wins, particularly in the Intergovernmental Organisation’.

The jobs were welcomed by IDA boss Martin Shanahan, who also backed the initiative.

“The addition of 100 new jobs is a strong endorsement of Ireland’s ability to provide the skills and range of languages required for the financial services industry,” Shanahan said.

This expansion plus the recent increase in headcount and the company’s significant investment in new property is most welcome and illustrates Allianz Worldwide Care’s confidence in Ireland as a compelling location for global businesses.

Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton said that over the past three years there have been 18,000 jobs created by multinationals in Ireland.
