Research Triangle Park-based jobs to add new business function to Fidelity Investments’ footprint in the State
Raleigh, NC (STL.News) Fidelity Investments will be creating a new Regional Center for its Personal Investing business, adding 500 new jobs at its existing campus in Research Triangle Park over the next few quarters, Governor Roy Cooper announced today.
The company has stated that it will begin hiring 500 additional staff immediately and that it intends to hire candidates with strong customer service skills, including those working in industries like hospitality and retail that may have been hit hardest by the pandemic.
“Today’s announcement shows that high quality talent builds the strongest foundation for long-term business relationships,” said Governor Cooper. “Fidelity Investments has been a great partner with our state in helping to improve education and career opportunities, and we look forward to our continued success.”
The 500 jobs will be part of a new business function for Fidelity Investments’ portfolio in North Carolina, which until now, has focused on technology that supports all company business lines, as well as customer service for 401(k) and other workplace clients. The company notes that candidates do not need to be a licensed financial professional to be hired.
