Amazon Creating 150 Warehouse & Driver Jobs In Greater Manchester

Online retailer Amazon is creating 150 new warehouse jobs and driving opportunities in Greater Manchester.

The company is setting up an Amazon Logistics delivery base at the Kingsway Business Park in the Milnrow area of Greater Manchester’s Rochdale.

Around 50 permanent warehouse operative positions will be created at the 215,000 square foot ‘delivery station’ along with a further 100+ delivery driver jobs through the Amazon Flex arm of the company.

Announcing the new jobs for Greater Manchester, Amazon Logistics’ Country Director for the UK , Kerry-Anne Lawlor, said: “We are excited to invest in the Rochdale area with a new delivery station that will provide efficient delivery for customers, and create new jobs for the talented workforce.”

A statement from Amazon explained the concept behind ‘delivery stations’ saying: “Delivery stations power the last mile of our order process and help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighbouring Amazon fulfilment and sortation centres, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers."

Tony Lloyd,.Labour’s Member of Parliament for Rochdale, welcomed the development, saying: “Rochdale needs jobs, so it is good to see this announcement by Amazon that they are creating these permanent jobs for the town.”

“This is a strong signal that Rochdale is a great place to locate. The example that Amazon is setting will be followed by many other businesses,” predicted the Labour MP.
