Boston-based Fidelity Investments announced Wednesday that it plans to hire 375 new employees in Colorado. This is part of a major push by financial services giants to add 4,000 jobs nationwide, including 1,000 in remote areas.
“By continuing to grow Fidelity Investments’ Colorado team and expanding the company’s US footprint, we can procure diverse and innovative talent to meet the changing financial needs of our current and future customers.” Said Josh Dikin, Fidelity’s Colorado Regional Leader, in the release. “We are committed to helping our customers achieve their individual financial goals, while at the same time providing employees with the opportunity to build a rewarding career with benefits to support and strengthen their entire lives. It is working.”
Last year, Fidelity Investments added about 200 financial consultants and 300 customer service jobs, primarily in Metro Denver. The company has about 1,200 employees in the state, spokeswoman Janelle O’Haugherty said.
Financial consultants and customer service representatives are the focus of a new wave of employment that is expected to end by midsummer, she said.
