A new Earthquake Commission centre in Hamilton will bring more than 150 jobs to the city.

EQC national claims manager Gail Kettle said the new centre, on London St, is scheduled to open in late August with more than 150 claims advisors and staff in support and management roles.

The operations were previously outsourced in Australia.

''By processing in Hamilton, we capture cost savings through better integration with out other operations in New Zealand, and we also get the benefits of local knowledge,'' she said.

One of the reasons claims processing had been offshore was so there would always be a secure office, no matter where an earthquake occurred in New Zealand.
