1,000 New Manchester Jobs At Amazon UK

Amazon continues its recruitment surge in the UK, announcing 1,000 new full or part time Manchester jobs in its latest addition to its distribution or fulfilment centre network.

The new jobs in Manchester, to be filled over three years starting from Autumn 2016, are double the number of jobs which Amazon announced for a new fulfilment centre in Leicestershire just last month.

The jobs will be based at a new fulfilment centre near Manchester Airport and roles on offer will include everything from order handlers (associates) to Operations managers and from HR staff to engineers.

Once both the Manchester and Leicestershire Amazon fulfilment centres are ready for action, the online retailer will have a dozen such facilities spread out across the UK. In total, Amazon UK will add 2,500 new members of staff in 2016, taking their staffing levels in the country to over 14,000 by the end of this year.

Announcing the new Manchester jobs, Amazon's Vice President of UK Operations, John Tagawa, said: “We are excited to open our first fulfilment centre in the North West of England, creating 1,000 new permanent jobs over three years with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one. We are proud to continue to add new permanent jobs to grow our dedicated and enthusiastic workforce who play a crucial role in delivering a first rate level of service for our customers.”

Member of Parliament for Wythenshawe and Sale East, Councillor Mike Kane, welcomed the Amazon announcement, saying: “This is fantastic news for residents of Wythenshawe and Sale East. 1,000 new permanent jobs over three years will open up new opportunities for many people in my constituency. This investment is another big step in the renaissance of Wythenshawe.”
