200 new jobs are being created at financial services company Acorn Life.

More than half of the positions will be filed this year.

The firm opened new offices in Sligo and Leopardstown Business Park in Dublin during 2014.

Keith Butler, Sales Director of Acorn Life said, “Last year (2014) was a very successful one for Acorn Life – with business levels up 50%.

“There are thousands of people searching for new opportunities in Ireland at the moment and many of them will have the range of core competencies needed to carve out a successful career in financial services – with a little help.

“Whether someone has already had a successful career in financial services or someone would like to take a new direction in their career Acorn Life may well have the employment opportunity that’s an exact fit for them,” added Butler.
