Affiliated Computer Services is looking to hire another 280 people in Raleigh.

The rapidly expanding firm, which is also known as ACS, is looking for call center agents and supervisors.

“We start our full time employees off well above minimum wage and offer benefits,” ACS spokesperson Chris Gilligan told WRAL.com. “They also have the opportunity to increase pay through performance incentives.”

ACS has been expanding rapidly in Raleigh in recent months and already has 1,100 employees in the capital city. Across North Carolina it has 3,250 people.

The new jobs need to be filled “quickly in order to handle the company’s growth,” ACS said in a statement.

Gilligan said he could not identify the client who needs more services from ACS.

“ACS has an existing client that we serve from this location that is experiencing growth,” he said. “ACS is growing with them to enable their expanded operations.”

People can apply online at the company's Web site.

They also can call (919) 424-9076.

Applications are also being accepted in person at the ACS facility at 2641 Sumner Blvd. in Raleigh.

ACS hired 150 people last November and 250 people last April in Raleigh.

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

ACS, which is part of Xerox, operates 150 call centers around the world and has more than 34,000 employees.
