No primary category set

Amazon are growing ever faster and are increasing the size of their UK fulfilment centre network to 15 by the end of 2017 to meet increasing customer demands and expand product selection. Today they’ve today announced that it will create 1,200 new permanent jobs with the opening of a new fulfilment centre in Warrington.

Amazon will begin recruiting later this year for a range of new roles, including operations managers, engineers, HR and IT specialists.

Warrington is one of four new fulfilment centres that Amazon will open in 2017. Last year Amazon announced that it would open fulfilment centres in Daventry, Doncaster and Tilbury in 2017, creating more than 2,300 new permanent full time jobs. The Daventry site opened in February while Doncaster, Warrington and Tilbury will begin their operations in the autumn.

“We are thrilled to begin recruitment for 1,200 new permanent roles in Warrington with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one”
– Stefano Perego, Amazon’s Director of UK Customer Fulfilment

Warrington and Tilbury fulfilment centres will be equipped with advanced Amazon Robotics technology. The robots slide under a tower of shelves where products are stowed, lift it and move it through the fulfilment centre.
