COVINGTON. Ky. (KT) – Fidelity Investment leaders on Wednesday revealed the company’s plans to hire nearly 600 people in Covington, adding to hundreds of hires at the financial services company’s Kenton County campus since the beginning of 2020.
Most of the available positions are for unlicensed roles and do not require previous experience in financial services, though the company also is hiring for licensed roles and leadership, operations and technology jobs. Additionally, Fidelity will offer training to new employees who aspire to become certified or learn more about the financial services industry.
“Fidelity Investments was creating job opportunities for Kentuckians even during the depths of the pandemic, so it’s incredible to celebrate the company’s continued growth today as our economy surges ahead,” said Gov. Andy Beshear. “Fidelity’s commitment to providing Kentuckians with quality job and training opportunities will continue paying dividends as our state positions itself to lead in the post-COVID economy. I am so appreciative of the company’s longtime partnership, and I congratulate Fidelity on its strong, sustained growth in Kentucky.”
New employees will join the nearly 4,700 professionals already working for Fidelity in the Covington area, comprising mostly client and relationship management professionals, operations specialists and technologists. The company’s latest hiring effort adds to roughly 730 jobs created at Fidelity’s Covington campus since the beginning of 2020.
“These new jobs come at a time when people are reconsidering what kind of work they want to do and where they see themselves,” said Kevin Canafax, vice president of regional public affairs at Fidelity Investments. “Fidelity employees help our customers with some of life’s most important financial goals, such as buying a home or planning for retirement. If you care about helping people, there’s a job here for you.”
Since 1992, when Fidelity first located in Covington, the company’s workforce there has increased nearly ten times the original number. Today, the location serves as the heart of Fidelity’s customer experience, and the company stands as one of northern Kentucky’s largest employers.
Headquartered in Boston, Fidelity employs more than 51,000 people across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
