Alexander Mann Solutions announces first acquisition of 2015
This acquisition is the first to be completed by Alexander Mann Solutions in 2015, and the second since it was acquired by US private equity fund, New Mountain Capital, in a £260 million deal in October 2013.
Founded by Sara Hill (CEO) in 2006, Capability Jane is a specialist diversity recruitment, flexible working and job share consulting firm that helps organisations attract, engage and retain top female talent through innovative proprietary methodologies and practical consulting solutions.
The integration of the suite of Capability Jane products and services will enable Alexander Mann Solutions to extend the breadth of its Diversity and Inclusion Consulting offering, to cover the full talent acquisition lifecycle, and notably to deepen expertise in its diversity, flexible working, job share implementation, resourcing, training, and managed service propositions.
Sara Hill, along with members of her consulting team, has joined Alexander Mann Solutions as the Head of Diversity Consulting, where she will lead and build the global Diversity and Inclusion practice.
Alexander Mann Solutions has acquired Capability Jane’s Consulting Practice which will be separated from Capability Jane’s Recruitment business. Capability Jane recruitment, a boutique recruitment business that specialises in resourcing part-time and job share executives, will continue to operate outside of Alexander Mann Solutions.
Jeremy Tipper, Director, Consulting, Innovation & Solution Sales of Alexander Mann Solutions, commented, “The acquisition of Capability Jane is a clear sign of Alexander Mann Solutions’ commitment to providing our global clients with innovative talent solutions and more specifically, tangible outcomes to diversity initiatives across the whole of the talent lifecycle. We are passionate about the diversity and inclusion agenda. And with the integration of the Capability Jane Consulting business we are able to offer our clients embedded capabilities across all stages of total integrated talent acquisition and management.
“Since its inception, Capability Jane has gained an outstanding reputation for advising clients on their talent acquisition and management strategy and for pioneering new ways of working that put talent at the forefront helping future proof organisations. It gives me great pleasure to bring this innovation and subject matter expertise into Alexander Mann Solutions. We plan to continue this market leading thinking, partnering our clients to new levels of excellence.”
Sara Hill, CEO of Capability Jane added, “I am extremely excited about the opportunity to integrate our consulting capability into Alexander Mann Solutions as market leaders within the talent acquisition and management industry.
To have the ability to truly drive innovation with a committed partner, is an absolute dream for my team and I. Alexander Mann Solutions is a genuinely entrepreneurial and innovative organisation with some of the most talented individuals in the industry. I am thrilled to be joining the Alexander Mann Solutions family and look forward to building the diversity and inclusion practice and bringing our combined capability to the market.”
