Business services firm First Advantage said Tuesday that it plans to move its operational headquarters from St. Petersburg, Fla., to its local offices in Fishers, creating up to 100 jobs in the process.

The company, which already has more than 200 workers in Fishers, plans to hire 50 workers immediately and another 50 by 2015, it said.
 
First Advantage, which offers a wide range of employee-recruitment services, said it will invest $3.7 million to renovate and install new IT equipment at its 44,000-square-foot space at 9800 Crosspoint Blvd.

Jobs will be offered in information technology, business operations, sales and client services. The firm plans job fairs at its offices on Sept. 19 and Sept. 20 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered First Advantage up to $1.8 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. Fishers is offering additional incentives.

Founded in 2003, First Advantage was established as a provider of background investigations and substance-abuse testing services. It is now owned by private equity firm Symphony Technology Group and provides recruiting, applicant tracking, screening and assessment, and other services.

Last year, the firm consolidated two local offices into its existing location in the Marsh Supermarkets headquarters building in Crosspoint business park.

The company has international offices in the United Kingdom and Asia Pacific.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
