JPMorgan Chase has committed to hiring 1000 US military veterans into technology positions over the next five years.
The new hires will work within JPMorgan's 40,000-strong Global Technology function, serving customers and colleagues in over 100 countries.
Ross Brown, head, military and veterans affairs, JPMorgan Chase, says: "The military instills service members with the character, training and skills critical to success in almost any field."
The bank also recently renewed its support to the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University with a $13.8 million commitment through 2020.
Part of the contribution will continue to wholly fund the Veterans Career Transition Program which offers a technology track for current and former service members, as well as their spouses.
Since 2011, more than 2,400 information technology certificates have been completed at no cost to participants.
