Chase plans to add between 500 and 1,000 mortgage-servicing jobs to its Central Ohio workforce when it moves into new office space in Gahanna, Ohio, later this year.
Chase already is the region’s largest private employer, with 17,000 workers in the Columbus area.
The additional workers will help homeowners around the country who are struggling with their monthly mortgage payments. The new employees will augment Chase’s staff at a 495,000-s.f. facility in Easton that Chase uses for mortgage servicing.
Chase expects to invest several million dollars to reconfigure and furnish the 123,000 s.f. of leased office space in Gahanna.
