Amazon To Create 200 New Warehouse Jobs In Derbyshire

Amazon is further expanding its UK operations in a move which will create around 200 new full or part time jobs in Derbyshire.

The warehouse jobs will be based at Amazon’s brand new ‘fulfilment centre’ in Chesterfield and it appears that all of the vacancies will be permanent roles for the online retailer.

Once complete, the Chesterfield warehouse will be Amazon’s eighteenth fulfilment centre in the UK and roles on offer at the new Derbyshire hub will include pickers and packers, engineers, HR staff and IT vacancies.

Announcing the new vacancies, Amazon UK’s customer fulfilment vice president, Stefano Perego, said: “We are delighted to open a new Amazon building in Chesterfield and begin recruitment for more than 200 new permanent roles with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming a new team, who will play a crucial role in delivering a first rate level of service for our customers,” added Mr Perego.

The chief executive of Bolsover District Council, Dan Swaine, welcomed the announcement, saying: “This is great news and welcome boost for the area. This new warehouse will create 200 permanent jobs in the area, meaning significant opportunities for local people and to attract a company like Amazon is good news for the local economy and the future of the district.”

Amazon fulfilment centre employees can earn up to £9.50 per hour outside of London and even more in the capital itself.

The company’s careers site also states that: “Amazon also offers employees an innovative programme called Career Choice that provides funding for adult education, offering to pre-pay 95 per cent of tuition and associated fees for nationally recognised courses, up to £8,000 over four years.”

Recruitment for the new positions at the Chesterfield Amazon fulfilment centre will get underway before the end of the year and you can find out more about the vacancies on the company’s website here.
