More than 200 jobs at a Co Fermanagh call centre have been secured after a deal was struck to transfer its management.

Liberty Insurance has transferred the running of its Enniskillen contact centre to international customer service management provider Teleperformance.

Last month Liberty announced its intention to seek a third party to take over business operations of the centre as part of its all-Ireland rationalisation plans.

The move came after the Irish subsidiary of the Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, which took over the operations of Quinn Insurance in 2011, decided to withdraw from the British personal motor insurance market to focus on Ireland.

That was accompanied with an announcement that 270 jobs would be lost through a voluntary redundancy programme - 250 south of the border and 20 of the 245 posts at the Enniskillen centre.

The remaining jobs in the Co Fermanagh operation have been retained through Liberty's deal with Teleperformance.

Under the agreement, Teleperformance will manage and operate the contact centre.
