Liberty IT Wins Top Placement Employer Award

Liberty IT proudly received the award for the Ulster Placement Employer of the Year 2013 (in the category of over 50 employees) at the recent University of Ulster gala awards ceremony.  This award, which recognises top employers’ contributions to student employability through work-based and placement learning, was especially welcomed given Liberty IT’s significant investment in their placement students.  HR Director Cathy Donnelly commented:

“We have developed a very successful business over the last 16 years and our placements have played a huge part in this. With 80% of them returning each year as graduates, 60% of which achieve a 1st class honours degree, we very much consider them our future talent.”

Liberty IT is a wholly-owned subsidiary of parent company, Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance.  In business for over 100 years, it is one of the world’s largest insurance companies, employing over 50,000 people worldwide.

Expanding year on year for the past 16 years, Liberty IT employs over 340 talented IT professionals, in areas such as infrastructure, software engineering, business analysis, architecture design, information management and verification.  In addition, this employer of choice recruits approximately 17 placement students and 25 graduates each year.
