COVINGTON, Ky. — Fidelity Investment leaders celebrating 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.
A vast majority of the roughly 600 available positions at Fidelity’s Covington office 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.
These new hires 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.
Since 1992, when Fidelity first located in Covington, the company’s workforce has increased nearly tenfold in Kenton County. Today, the location serves as the heart of Fidelity’s customer experience, and the company stands as one of Northern Kentucky’s largest employers.
Fidelity provides free, state-standardized personal finance workshops for hundreds of Kentucky schoolteachers. These programs equip teachers with tools for achieving financial success in life as well as concepts and teaching techniques to help them share this knowledge with their students.
Headquartered in Boston, Fidelity employs more than 51,000 people across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Northern Kentucky Tri-ED CEO Lee Crume said Fidelity is an important contributor to a successful financial services sector in the region.
“Fidelity’s significant investment and addition of hundreds of new, well-paying financial services career opportunities demonstrates there is an educated, available talent base in the Cincinnati region,” Crume said. “We appreciate their bullish approach to the post-pandemic recovery and growth strategy at their Northern Kentucky campus.”
