Amazon will hire 2,000 people for various roles in the UK in 2019. This will take its workforce strength to more than 29,500. The positions, to be filled in by candidates with a range of experience, disciplines and skills, include engineers, software developers, data scientists, and cloud and machine learning experts. There are also some entry-level jobs.

Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond said: “The announcement from Amazon is a clear vote of confidence in the British economy. 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. Thanks to our record investment in infrastructure, skills and research and development, we will continue to lead the technological revolution.”

Doug Gurr, Amazon UK country manager, said: “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. 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.”

Of the jobs created over 170 will be at its development centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London. These are highly-skilled roles working on innovative new technologies that benefit Amazon’s customers around the world.

Alongside the 2,000 new permanent roles announced, Amazon announced earlier this year plans for 1,000 new apprenticeships in the UK over the next two years. The apprenticeships will consist of nine programmes, lasting between 13 months and four years, across IT, software engineering, robotics, leadership and technology, as well as safety and human resources.
