Sallie Mae is growing its customer service operation in New Castle County with 285 new jobs. The company will employ a total of 1,000 workers in the county.
Were glad Sallie Mae has chosen to significantly expand its operations here in Delaware, said Gov. John Carney. Delaware has an experienced, skilled financial sector workforce that is perfectly suited for this expansion. And were proud to support Sallie Mae, and the Delawareans who work there, as the company continues to put down roots here in our great state.
The new jobs are part of a deal with the Delaware Division of Small Business, Development & Tourism to hire impacted workers recent laid off by local companies.
We remain focused on helping grow business in Delaware. And at the same time, we continue to work to encourage our existing business partners to be exceptional corporate citizens, said Cerron Cade, director of the Division of Small Business, Development & Tourism. Keeping workers and the economic benefit they create right here in Delaware is a big win for Sallie Mae and the state.
Sallie Mae is applying for a Delaware Strategic Fund Grant of up to $2,160,000. The reimbursements would be contingent on reports of the new employment numbers.
The Council on Financial Development will meet on July 24 at 9:00 a.m. to review the proposal.
