Amazon UK to create over 2,500 permanent jobs in the UK in 2018

No primary category set

Amazon UK is hiring for roles in its head office and fashion photography studio in London, development centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London, its customer service centre in Edinburgh, within AWS, as well as in its dozens of delivery stations across the country and 16 fulfilment centres, including at new sites in Coventry and Bolton. The expansion of the company’s Operations network helps support tens of thousands of independent businesses of all sizes, with half of all units stocked in Amazon’s UK fulfilment centres held on behalf of sellers using Fulfilment by Amazon.

The UK is a fantastic place to do business so we are delighted to continue our investment in the British economy and provide quality, permanent roles for people the length and breadth of the country. Whether you are looking for an entry-level role or in highly-specialised fields such as speech science or machine learning, we are proud to be expanding our UK workforce so we can further improve our products and services like AmazonFresh, Prime Video and Amazon Alexa.
– Doug Gurr, Amazon UK Country Manager

All permanent Amazon employees, whether working in UK fulfilment centres or corporate offices, receive competitive pay and stock grants that vest over the course of their careers in the business. Employees at all levels are also offered a comprehensive benefits package, including private medical insurance from day one, life assurance, income protection, an employee discount and a company pension plan. Amazon also offers fulfilment centre associates a programme called Career Choice which provides funding for adult education, offering to pre-pay 95% of tuition and associated fees for nationally recognised, in-demand courses, up to £8,000 over four years.

The company is currently also recruiting a further 170 apprentices in fulfilment centres across the UK with opportunities in operations, engineering and facilities. Apprenticeships with Amazon provide a possible alternative to college or university and give candidates the opportunity to learn new skills in exciting, fast-paced and challenging environments.
