Amazon to create 5,000 jobs in UK

Online retail giant Amazon is planning to create 5,000 jobs in the UK this year. The news means that the company will grow its total number of UK employees to 24,000 in 2017.

The retailer will be hiring across a number of departments with roles based at sites such as Amazon’s London headquarters, its Edinburgh customer service and development centre, and at three new fulfilment centres in Daventry, Doncaster and Tilbury.

Positions will include software developers, warehouse staff, technicians and HR specialists and a range of junior roles.

The company will also be launching a new apprenticeship programme offering opportunities in engineering, logistics and warehousing at its fulfilment centres.

Doug Gurr, UK country manager at Amazon, said: “We are creating thousands of new UK jobs including hundreds of apprenticeship opportunities as we continue to innovate for our customers and provide them with even faster delivery, more selection and better value.”
