Fidelity Aims to Hire 500 Employees in New Hampshire
NEC member Fidelity Investments has announced plans to hire 500 new employees for its Merrimack campus. The hiring is part of a company-wide initiative to add 4,000 new employees across the country.
Fidelity has experienced a 24% increase in planning engagement activity as new investors open accounts, driving the need for more personnel at the company. Fidelity also plans to accept 1,000 college and university students into its 2021 internship program, as well as 500 graduates to participate in post grad job training opportunities. Fidelity currently employs 5,300 in New Hampshire.
“We’re looking for financial advisers, licensed representatives, software engineers and customer service representatives to fill thousands of roles across the country over the next six months,” said Kathleen Murphy, president of personal investing at Fidelity.
