Jobs created at AA's Dublin centre
AA Ireland is creating 40 jobs at its Dublin headquarters.
The motoring organisation said it is recruiting for its insurance operations, web development section and other areas.
Conor Faughnan, director of policy, said demand has been growing for road rescue services in recent years as people hold on to cars for longer.
"AA Insurance has been performing very strongly and we need extra staff in our call centre to deal with growing demand," he said.
"We are predicting a good year in 2011 and we are investing in extra resources."
Mr Faughnan said they were looking for people to fill vacancies across the business.
"In the main, it is staff for our motor insurance, home and travel insurance sections and for AA Rescue, although we are also recruiting in web development and other areas."
The AA is based on Drury Street in central Dublin.
