Capital One adding 700 jobs in Henrico, 1,000 in Virginia

Capital One Financial Corp. will add 1,000 jobs in Virginia this year and next, including 700 jobs in Henrico County, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced today. The company bought two new commercial office buildings in the Innsbrook office park of Henrico to handle the growth. The McLean-based company plans to open a new call center and operations center there next yearCapital One is getting a $300,000 grant from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund to help with its plans.

Capital One recently finished its acquisition of Chevy Chase Bank. In the Fredericksburg area, Capital One has five branches and about $50 million in customer deposits. Capital One spokeswoman Julie Rakes said the 300 jobs not going to Henrico will likely be added to existing Capital One branches and operations across the state. People can go to the career section of the company’s Web site to search for openings.

Bank of America is also adding banking jobs in Virginia, as I recently wrote.
