One of the world’s largest talent acquisition companies, Alexander Mann Solutions, is establishing a global client service centre in Belfast, creating more than 250 jobs.

London-headquartered Alexander Mann Solutions has an international blue-chip client base and employs more than 2,200 people in more than 80 countries.

The new centre in Belfast will generate annual salaries of stg£6.1m.

Invest NI is supporting the new jobs with a grant of stg£1m and further assistance of more than stg£600,000, including support for training, partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The Department for Employment and Learning has also offered stg£400,000 through its Assured Skills programme.

Rosaleen Blair, the Irish-born entrepreneur and founding CEO of Alexander Mann Solutions, said there is no doubting why Northern Ireland is the leading UK region for inward investment outside of London.

“In particular, we were attracted to Belfast’s compelling combination of a highly educated and multilingual workforce, a cost-competitive infrastructure and a pro-business operating environment," she said.

"We are confident that the city is the best strategic destination for the next stage of our global development, and we are delighted to be working with Invest NI to generate high-value jobs that boost the local economy.”
