Fidelity Investments is seeking to fill approximately 4,000 new client-facing positions across the U.S. over the next six months due to “unprecedented customer growth and engagement” in its business.
According to a company announcement, the positions include financial advisors, licensed representatives and customer service employees involved in personal investing and workplace investing. It hopes to fill about half the new positions by year-end and expects the number of client-facing associates will grow 15% this year.
The privately held financial services firm is also actively recruiting 1,000 college and university students for its 2021 summer internship program and 500 college graduates in 2021 for its post-graduate training programs and looking to hire software engineers.
“We continue to see very strong growth, both in new accounts to Fidelity as well as deeper engagement from our existing client base,” said Kathleen Murphy, president of Fidelity Investments’ Personal Investing division, in a statement.
