100 Staffordshire Temp Jobs At Amazon

Amazon have confirmed that they are looking to fill 100 temporary jobs in Staffordshire at their warehouse, or fulfilment centre, in Rugeley.

Recruitment is already underway for the temp jobs at Amazon, and the online shopping giant hope to fill all 100 vacancies within the next few weeks. The firm advertised 350 permanent jobs at their Rugeley base in 2014, taking their employee count in Staffordshire to around 1,000 members of staff. Amazon employs a further 5,000 permanent staff in the UK at its many other fulfilment centres in England, Scotland and Wales.

Commenting on the new temporary jobs in Staffordshire, Melanie Etches, a spokeswoman for Amazon said: “We take on additional temporary staff to ensure that we continue to provide the highest levels of service when there are fluctuations in customer demand. Recruitment for a small number of temporary roles has taken place recently via a number of local agencies.”

Explaining the timeframe for recruitment in Rugeley and the local areas that are being targeted by Amazon, Cathy Taylor of the Wolverhampton Jobcentre Plus, said: “The company wants to take on over 100 new staff to work on the Rugeley site over the next few weeks. They are looking as far as the Black Country to take on people as there are now a substantial number of employees travelling from the Black Country to work for Amazon at Rugeley.”

The hundred new jobs in Rugeley follow quickly on from the 500 new full and part time jobs in Bedfordshire which Amazon announced just last month.
