— Affiliated Computer Services is looking to hire another 150 people in Raleigh immediately, the company said Monday.

Customer care agents, supervisors and managers are needed “in order to accommodate increased business activity,” the company said.

"ACS has several existing contracts with a variety of clients that are growing. Those current clients are turning to ACS to handle the growth," a company spokesperson told LTW and WRAL.com. "We are not allowed to disclose our clients’ identity."

"The positions pay above minimum wage with benefits with the opportunity for advancement," he added.

Unlike most other companies in the recession, ACS has been on a hiring binge. In August, it said 465 jobs were available.

ACS has said repeatedly that its Raleigh area operation has been a “success” based on the region’s talent pool.

Training for new positions will begin in November. People can apply online at the ACS Web site or at its office located at 4924 Green Rd., Suite 101.

ACS employs some 2,600 people in North Carolina, most of whom work in Raleigh.

The company works with firms worldwide at 150 centers that support more than 34,000 employees.
