Northern Ireland based Abbey Insurance Brokers is planning to open a new branch office in Enniskillen, creating up to ten jobs

The company has secured premises on 11 Townhall Street, opposite Boots, and has already started refurbishment work.

Abbey Insurance is a family owned and run business, started in Newtownabbey in 1973 by founder George Storey. It has grown to be Northern Ireland’s largest locally-owned insurance broker with 23 branches province wide and over 400 employees.

Abbey Insurance Brokers CEO Trevor Shaw said: “We are extremely pleased to be bringing the Abbey Insurance branch network to Enniskillen. We pride ourselves on being able to offer people across the country the very best deals on their insurance, no matter where they are located.

"Creating a branch in Enniskillen means that local customers can drop in and talk to us at any time.

“We are a people-focused business and will be recruiting for up to ten new positions in our Enniskillen store – a branch manager post and numerous sales advisors. This is in line with our vision to continue reinvesting in Northern Ireland’s economy and expanding the Abbey Insurance branch network.

“At Abbey, we offer car, home and travel insurance, as well as taxi, van, motorbike and young drivers insurance, and we use our years of experience in the local market to negotiate with a wide panel of insurance providers on behalf of our customers.

"We search, so you save time, hassle and hopefully a few pounds too.”
