US owned recruitment specialists Allegis Global Solutions (AGS) has announced that it plans to open new offices in Birmingham, creating 100 new jobs. The company will be located in the new co-working space within the city's Alpha Tower. AGS will offer a range of specialist recruitment roles including administrator, co-ordinator and manager roles. The local labour market in the West Midlands, particularly the proximity to a large numbers of graduates, was cited as a key reason behind the decision to set up in Birmingham. Further expansion may be planned and more skilled workers will be needed. There is no information available as to when the new jobs will be filled.
