Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS) is all about Inspiring People. The people we work with, the clients we work for and the communities we’re part of.
And inspiring is the environment we’ve created within AMS. One where people are developed and supported through challenging opportunities. One where they can work with the most talented people in the industry – specialists who they can learn from all the time. One where we’re ambitious with our growth plans, innovative in our solutions and committed to our clients.
Who we are and what we do
AMS builds world-class talent and resourcing capability for some of the world’s leading companies. We’ve built the right global infrastructure to deliver it, have a great track record to learn from, employ the best people to do it and secured the most exciting clients to work with.
We help clients hire better people than their competitors, and quicker than they do. We find candidates in new and innovative ways and from diverse sources. We proactively manage talent pools, help move people internally and make our clients’ employer brands stand out in a crowded market. We also advise our clients on their plans and help put them in action.
In essence, AMS gives our clients back the time and space to focus on their strategy while we focus on making them the best at hiring and retaining the best.
What makes us inspiring
We offer an inspiring environment where you can use your energy, enthusiasm and expertise to realise your aspirations and really make a difference. It’s our promise to our employees.
Inspiring People is a core part of who we are as a business. We are lucky that every day, through our work, we come into contact with people we have the opportunity to inspire – whether it’s helping a client with their strategic plans, introducing a candidate to an opportunity they never thought existed or working on an employer brand to make it more memorable.
How we give back
Many organizations treat global citizenship as a simple PR exercise. At AMS, it’s embedded in our culture.
Global Citizenship is how we give something back, making sure that our business is a proactive global citizen, with a positive impact on the world around us. Our program is aligned with the United Nations Global Compact – we use the Global Compact as both a framework and a measurement. You can read more about the UN Global Compact here.
Whether it’s joining our Three Peaks Challenge team to trek up mountains, belonging to cultural advisory groups, or thinking of ways to reduce our environmental footprint, our people are committed to making a difference. For example, AMS employees volunteer to deliver workshops at our local Charities of Choice, supporting individuals who are transitioning into full-time paid employment. This gives our people a fantastic chance to develop their own presentation, training and mentoring skills while at the same time giving those in need the help they deserve.
Choice of Opportunities
There’s one word that sums up what we offer: choice. The choice of working in a number of exciting locations around the world, with a broad range of high profile businesses across many different industry sectors. The choice of focusing on one stream within our career framework, or building new skills across specialist areas. Should you choose to join AMS, you will have complete control over where your career takes you.
Few organisations offer resourcing, recruitment and talent specialists the chance to really get under the skin of some of the world’s most exciting brands. Not just to work with them, but to work as part of them, building strong relationships and influencing their business and bottom line, and to do so in combination with generous benefits and the flexibility to grow and change within a role. If you’re looking for a position where you can make a genuine difference delivering real results for premier clients, a career with AMS is your best option.Many of our consultants work in highly specialised areas of resourcing and talent, from occupational psychologists to recruitment technology experts, project managers and art directors to business analysts and sourcing experts. If you’re an experienced professional looking for the next step in your career or to broaden your horizons in a growing market, talk to us.
And of course, supporting such a large and diverse organisation is a remarkable, talented team of Central Services staff, managing all aspects of payroll, HR, IT, legal, marketing and finance. If you want to part of a global organisation with incredible opportunity, get in contact.
Learning and development
People of all backgrounds join AMS. Our Career Development Centre focuses on the development and growth of employees of all levels, in all disciplines. This is achieved through structured learning and peer-based development.
Our dedicated training programme is aligned to our competency framework, ensuring everyone in our business has the skills they need to excel in their role. Amongst other things, our trainers welcome new starters with an interactive induction day to broaden your knowledge around the AMS story so far. They also help our people managers understand how to manage and motivate their teams better. And they train our sourcing specialists and recruiters in the latest web-based sourcing techniques providing them with the skills to find talent and communicate more effectively – AMS has developed a Sourcing Accreditation Programme to encourage and recognise these skills for career progression in sourcing.
A Culture of Development
We want all our employees to have a clear and consistent understanding of what is expected of them and, through the support and coaching of their managers, be motivated and inspired to deliver their very best. When you join, you will help craft a structured personal development plan that will enable you to address your development needs and your progression within our organisation. This is supported by fair and transparent appraisals like 360-degree feedback and performance ratings.
Rewards and benefits
It’s a competitive market out there, and we strive to ensure that the compensation and benefits we provide meet the needs of our people. At the same time we value high performance, and our jobs are as challenging as they are rewarding. Our people are measured against high performance standards, and rewarded for achieving them.But it’s not only about achieving individual high performance – we want people to enjoy working together as a team and to encourage, motivate and mentor each other. We celebrate when teams achieve together, and recognise the best teams in the business through our quarterly Inspiring Awards.
Our benefits programme, Passport, further supports our culture and values. It’s fair, balanced, and it reflects the cultural differences across our business globally. It’s flexible where it can be, and we allow people to choose what’s best for them as individuals.

I have been working at Alexander Mann Solutions full-time (more than an year)Pros
I've seen substantial growth, a more defined structure, and lots of opportunity as we continue to grow our business with young entrepreneurs that are driven and motivated to be successful in a culture that is not only professional and productive, but absolutely fun to be a part of! This includes pot lucks, dress down days, and a game room!Cons
Since we are an RPO and not full cycle, our structure from an outside perspective seems like it would limit someone to certain areas (admin, sourcing, recruiting, etc.) within their development and career. However, with many different clients and continued growth, most AMS employees have a varied journey filled with internal movement and have gained experience in multiple areas.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Due to our growth, we have been asked to physically move a lot, on separate floors at one point, which has been inconvenient at times.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
