Deutsche Bank will hire 300 new employees to its Jacksonville location over the next three years, the bank and Gov. Rick Scott announced Monday.
The bank will also spend $10 million in capital improvements.
Deutsche Bank had promised both of those figures earlier this year when it sought and received $2.1 million in city and state incentives. The average salary would be $62,063, the bank said at the time.
“The jobs Deutsche Bank is creating in this next phase of expansion are exactly the types of jobs that we have been targeting for the region,” said Jerry Mallot, president of JAXUSA Partnership. “Many of these jobs are sophisticated finance positions that have traditionally only existed on Wall Street. Deutsche Bank is one of many financial services companies that have found a highly qualified workforce in Jacksonville with operating costs that are much lower than the Northeast.”
