Aviva to bring 150 new jobs to Perth

Insurance giant Aviva has announced it is bringing 150 new jobs to its headquarters in Perth.

Customer adviser and claims handling roles will bring the workforce up to 1,100.

The firm said the jobs would be a mix of full and part-time home and travel insurance roles.

Though an increase in staff numbers at the Perth base had been anticipated, the scale came as a welcome surprise.

Aviva is already one of the biggest private sector employers in the city.
