Birmingham-based Liberty National Insurance wants to hire 5,000 new employees nationwwide before the end of January. 100 of those new jobs are available in Montgomery.

Apparently, the insurance industry is better off than most these days and Liberty National officials say now is the time to grow their company.

"We're just in an expansion mode, needing agents and managers and we're excited about it. We're excited about what's happening in Alabama," said Montgomery branch manager Wayne Cobb.

Founded in 1900, Liberty National offers life and supplemental health insurance. If you have at least a high school diploma, you can apply for one of the open positions in person at the company's Montgomery branch.

The office is located at 2524 Bell Road. Hours are 9:00-5:00 Monday through Friday and 9:00-Noon on Saturdays.
