Sandyford based insurance firm to create 150 jobs...
Insurer GloHealth, which launched in Ireland this week, said it will take on 150 staff over the next three to four years. Forty-five positions have already been filled.
Jim Dowdall, chief executive, said the company would focus on providing cheaper insurance cover and care tailored to the needs of clients.
"Health insurance customers are crying out for a new approach and hard-pressed families are looking for better value, better cover and better choice," he said.
Launched by Jim Dowdall, Stephen Loughman and Oliver Tattan, the chief executive of Aviva, the new firm will focus on providing products for families as well as free cover to children under three years of age.
The new insurer is to offer three core plans. These -- called Good, Better and Best -- have already been
included on the Health Insurance Authority's comparison tool at www.hia.ie. There will be no corporate plans.
Families can choose free add-ons such as free travel insurance, free flu vaccine, or free family first aid courses.
With the Better and Best plans, all children are covered for free until they are three.
GloHealth customers will also be able to choose benefit packages, depending on their requirements, at an extra cost
