JPMorgan Chase will hire 210 in retail banking in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, the bank announced yesterday.
The bank is looking for 180 managers, personal bankers and tellers. The other 30 will be auto loan collectors who will work in bank branches and in auto lending. Nancy Norris, a spokeswoman for the firm, said the hiring would take place over the next two months.
Personal banker candidates are expected to have at least one year of retail sales experience in person or over the phone, but the bank will still consider those without experience. Branch managers are required to have at least two years experience in retail banking.
The plans to expand in Florida are part of an announced initiative to broaden the retail network. In February, the bank announced plans to add 1,000 branches across the country in the next three years and up to 2,000 within the next five. There are currently 5,172 branches in the U.S., and the bank said it planned to target California and Florida. Chase employs more than 15,000 people in Florida.
Headcount at all the new branches could reach 15,000 over the next five years, a spokesperson told FINS in February.
