Amazon set to create 10,000 new UK jobs this year


Amazon is on course to create 10,000 new permanent jobs during 2020 across its UK operations in order to meet growing consumer demand.

The new roles will take Amazon’s total UK workforce above 40,000 employees and it has already filled 3,000 of the planned 10,000 jobs across its fulfilment operations. 

Approximately half of the remaining 7,000 roles will be recruited for the retailer’s three new warehouses in Durham, Nottingham and Darlington, while those remaining will be spread across the UK and include jobs ranging from engineers to finance and IT specialists.
