Amazon is setting up a new fulfilment centre in Kegworth, East Midlands, which will create more than 500 jobs. This will help the company meet customer demand, expand selection and enable SMBs to scale businesses. Kegworth will be Amazon`s fifth fulfilment centre in the Midlands, and joins coming up facilities in Coalville, Daventry, Rugeley, and Rugby.

“We are thrilled to begin recruitment for 500 new permanent roles in Kegworth, with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one,” said Stefano Perego, Amazon’s vice president of UK Customer Fulfilment. “We are delighted to expand our operations in the East Midlands. With capacity to expand our workforce to over 1,000 permanent positions in the future, this new team will play a crucial role in delivering a first rate level of service for our customers.”

“I was very pleased to learn that Amazon had chosen the East Midlands Gateway area for their new fulfilment centre and that in time it will provide 500 permanent jobs, and opportunities, for local people,” said Andrew Bridgen MP for North West Leicestershire. “The decision demonstrates the ever increasing strength of our thriving local economy and the confidence that business has in our area.”

Amazon has started recruiting for a range of new roles for the fulfilment centre, including operations managers, engineers, HR and IT specialists. Recruitment for the Amazon team in Kegworth who will pick, pack and ship customer orders will begin later this year. (SV)
