Amazon has announced plans to expand its UK workforce by 2,000 full time permanent positions in 2019. These roles will be right across the business, and will take its workforce to around 29,500 by the end of the year.
The roles in question will include head office jobs, engineers, software developers, data scientists as well as the pickers, packers and drivers the company needs.
“We are delighted to be able continue to invest and grow our UK 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,” said Amazon UK country manager, Doug Gurr. “Whether you are looking for a highly-specialised role at one of our fulfilment centres or in a field such as machine learning or flight engineering, we offer a wide variety of opportunities.”
As well as the full time roles, the online giant is planning to offer 1,000 apprenticeships in IT, software engineering, robotics, leadership and technology, as well as safety and human resources. These will take place over the next two years.
