Company will relocate to an office that facilitates hybrid and flexible work
09 March 2022, Cleveland, Ohio — AMS (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions), a global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services, has announced plans to grow its U.S. presence by increasing its Cleveland headquarters workforce by 60% (adding 153 jobs to its current staff of 250) and relocating locally to a more modern office that better supports the future of work. The new office, located in the AECOM Building at 1300 E. 9th Street, will support a hybrid and flexible work model and provide continuous learning and development opportunities for employees.
In 2012, AMS launched its U.S. operations in Cleveland with eight employees. Over the past 10 years, it has not only expanded its Cleveland workforce but also added 1,700 employees across the Americas. AMS’ decision to retain its U.S. headquarters in Cleveland was supported by the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD)’s tax credit assistance, approved on February 28, 2022, which helps companies create jobs in Ohio.
“The city of Cleveland and its welcoming community have played an integral role in AMS’ growth in the region and throughout the U.S.,” said Nicola Hancock, Managing Director – Americas Region at AMS. “We’re especially appreciative of the economic development team of Team NEO, JobsOhio and the ODOD for collaborating with us over the years to ensure our success in Northeast Ohio and beyond. Cleveland has been an amazing city from which we have built our entire Americas presence.”
The new positions will largely be in AMS’ Trainee Recruiter Program and its Sourcing Academy. Both are designed to augment and develop the company’s internal talent in order to support the industries and clients where AMS is seeing growth, including financial services, pharma/life sciences and technology.
“Attracting and retaining talent in Cleveland is a key priority to drive population growth and our economic recovery. The growth of AMS shows what is possible when businesses choose Cleveland as their home, nearly doubling their HQ workforce since last year,” Mayor Bibb said.
“The Northeast Ohio region is a prime location for headquarters operations because of our talented workforce and corporate-friendly tax structure, as well as the strength of our professional services,” said Bill Koehler, Team NEO CEO. “This expansion demonstrates AMS’ ongoing confidence in the Northeast Ohio region and its talent. We join our local partners, JobsOhio and ODOD, in ensuring their continued success here.”
For the past nine years, AMS has been recognized by NorthCoast 99, an awards program that honors 99 great Northeast Ohio workplaces for top talent, and received its 2021 award for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
