Amazon To Deliver 200 New Jobs In Medway

Amazon is building another ‘fulfilment centre’ in the UK which will create around 200 full or part time jobs in Medway.

Amazon will open the huge new 366,000 square foot sort centre warehouse this October creating hundreds of new vacancies in the area.

Amazon UK’s general manager for sort centres, Kevin Marsh, said: “We are delighted to be creating 200 permanent jobs in Medway as we continue to grow our last mile logistics network. The sortation centre will have an important role in supporting the fast and reliable delivery Amazon customers love and trust. We would like to thank everyone in Medway and beyond for their support on this site.”

Welcoming the announcement, Councillor Alan Jarrett, Leader of Medway Council, described it as ‘fantastic news’ which displayed ‘great confidence’ in the Kent region.

“We are particularly delighted that Amazon has chosen to locate in Medway in 2018, the year when Medway is celebrating its 20th anniversary and Amazon celebrates 20 years of creating jobs in the UK. The new site in Medway will create more than 200 permanent jobs and I hope with Medway’s skilled workforce, local people will be able to fill these roles,” said Councillor Jarrett.

Chris Broom, the Head of Investment at ‘Locate in Kent’, a business development service for the region, also commented on the Amazon announcement, saying: “We already know that Medway is a great place to do business, with its excellent transport links and access to a talented workforce. The investment and new jobs that Amazon will bring is a fantastic endorsement for all that Medway has to offer and shows that the region is very much open for business.”

Amazon employed around 25,000 people in the UK at the end of last year and looks on target to create a further 2,500 jobs during 2018, increasing its headcount by 10 per cent.
