Amazon to create 4,000 UK jobs

The move will bring the group’s total UK workforce to 75,000

Amazon has pledged to create more than 4,000 new permanent jobs in the UK this year, bringing its total UK workforce to 75,000.

According to the group, the new roles will be spread across the UK and will include roles at its new fulfilment centres in Wakefield and Knowsley.

Among the roles to be created, jobs in corporate, technology, software development, product management and engineering, as well as in operations teams, will reportedly be available.

Amazon’s operations in the UK are estimated to support an additional 410,000 jobs, 250,000 at businesses which sell on Amazon, and more than 160,000 across its supply chain.

John Boumphrey, Amazon UK country manager, said: “We’re continuing to invest in talent right across the UK, from apprentices in Swansea to data scientists in Edinburgh. People join us not just for the wide variety of roles, great pay and benefits, but for the career development opportunities we provide.

“Applicants recognise we are an employer that offers great development potential, and we are proud to have so many employees growing and taking the opportunity to learn new skills that will create paths to new jobs at Amazon and beyond.”
