29 Jun 2020
The bank's $6.9 million expansion will bring customer service jobs to City headquarters.
In collaboration with Delaware Prosperity Partnership, Barclays US Consumer Bank today announced plans to create more than 300 new customer service jobs at its Wilmington headquarters during a meeting of the Council on Development Finance (CDF).
Barclays representatives presented the company's expansion plan which, in addition to the new roles, included $6.9 million capital improvements to redesign space within its existing headquarters building in Wilmington to house the new employees. The CDF approved Barclays for Delaware Strategic Fund monies totaling nearly $2.5 million, including a Performance Grant of almost $1.3 million; a $1 million Training Grant; and a Capital Expenditures Grant of $207,000. The grants are performance-based and will be paid out over a period of three years after the company meets milestones prescribed by the CDF.
