Insurance firm creating 49 jobs

An insurance company is creating almost 50 new jobs in Northern Ireland.

Lakeland Trading Solutions is setting up a call centre in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, to primarily sell home and contents insurance.

Invest Northern Ireland has contributed £343,000 towards the creation of the 49 new posts over the next three years.

Arlene Foster, the Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister, welcomed the announcement.

She said: "This investment underlines that it is not just Belfast that investors look at when considering where to locate in Northern Ireland, and that it all comes down to finding the right location to match their individual needs.

"These new jobs are a boost to the region offering flexible employment to a wide range of people, from those with experience in customer service to others looking to develop new work skills."

The new call centre will be at the Killyhevlin Industrial Estate.

Matthew Martin from Lakeland Trading Solutions said: "After considering other UK locations, we were convinced that Enniskillen offered us the best business environment in terms of cost effectiveness along with the quality and availability of talent.

"The support we have received has been important to us getting the operation up and running and we look forward to working with them as we grow the operation over the next couple of years.

"As an Enniskillen man myself, it is great to be able to give something back to the area by setting up the business here."
