The Zurich Insurance Group is opening two IT hubs, and has already started recruiting people to work in areas from change management, cyber analysts and disaster recovery specialists.
The Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said the hubs, which will provide services to Zurich customers globally and in Europe, are "excellent news for Dublin and Ireland".
