Fidelity announces 500 new jobs in Smithfield, RI

SMITHFIELD — Fidelity Investments is rolling out 500 new positions at its Smithfield campus, with choosing starting immediately.

The organization delivered the news Monday along with condition leaders including Gov. Dan McKee, marking his initial work announcement considering that turning into governor. 

Choosing for the positions, about 90% of which are entry-degree, will continue on during the subsequent handful of quarters. 

Rick Metters, Fidelity’s vice president of Rhode Island regional community affairs and federal government relations, said the business is looking for candidates with powerful client-service skills, and that being a certified money specialist is not a prerequisite.
