Amazon To Create 2,000 New Jobs In The UK

A fresh bout of expansion will see online retailer Amazon create 2,000 new jobs across the United Kingdom.

These 2,000 latest vacancies are in addition to the 1,000 Amazon apprenticeships which we brought you news of in February.

The new UK jobs are all to be filled this year and will take the number of people employed by Amazon in Britain to almost 30,000.

Roles on offer include warehouse positions and specialist vacancies such as data scientists, software developers and engineers.

Positions will be available across most of the UK, but almost 200 of the vacancies will be created at Amazon’s head office and development centre in London, as well as in Cambridge, Manchester and Edinburgh.

Announcing the new jobs, the head of Amazon’s UK operations, Doug Gurr, said: “We are delighted to be able continue to invest and grow our U.K. business. The UK is a fantastic hub for global talent and the exciting, innovative work that takes place here benefits Amazon’s customers around the world.”

Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, described the announcement as ‘a clear vote of confidence in the British economy, adding: “This Government is supporting business to create the high-skilled, high-paid jobs of the future, and these roles will benefit people across the UK, including the cities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.”
