Amazon is setting up a new fulfilment centre in Darlington, County Durham. The new unit will help the company meet customer demand and enable SMBs to scale their businesses. This will create more than 1,000 new permanent jobs. Recruitment for the Amazon team in Darlington who will pick, pack and ship customer orders will begin early next year.

New roles for the fulfilment centre being created include engineers, HR and IT professionals through to health and safety and finance specialists and operations managers.

“We are excited to start the New Year with a recruitment drive for 1,000 new permanent roles in Darlington, 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 North East with this new team playing a crucial role in delivering a first rate level of service for our customers.”

The Darlington site will be fitted out with advanced Amazon Robotics technology. The robots slide under a tower of shelves where products are stowed, lift it and move it through the fulfilment centre. Darlington will be Amazon’s first fulfilment centre in the North-East.

Peter Gibson, MP for Darlington, said: “I welcome any new employer to Darlington but in the first week as MP for our town this is truly brilliant news, which deserves to be celebrated. Bringing jobs and investment to the Tees Valley are as key focus of me and my new Conservative colleagues working hand in hand with Ben Houchen.”

To date, Amazon has created over 29,500 jobs and invested over £18 billion in its UK operations since 2010 to provide convenience, selection and value to UK consumers, while supporting more than 373,000 businesses and creative professionals including sellers, AWS developers and KDP authors.

Earlier this year, Amazon announced plans to create 1,000 new full-time apprentices roles, including over 90 bachelors and master’s degree-level apprenticeships for software development, automation engineering and senior leadership, across corporate and operations sites in the UK over a two year period.
