Amazon is set to create 1,500 permanent jobs in Essex next year with the construction of a new fulfilment centre in Tilbury.
Amazon will start recruiting staff for the centre later this summer, from operations managers to engineers, HR and IT roles to people who will handle customer orders.
“We are excited to announce that we will be opening our 13th fulfilment centre in the UK in Tilbury in spring 2017 to enable us to continue to expand our product selection, support more third party sellers including small businesses with our fulfilment expertise and meet growing customer demand in the UK,” said John Tagawa, Amazon’s vice president of UK Operations.
“We are delighted to be creating more than 1,500 new permanent full-time jobs with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one.”
The group announced earlier this month it will also open a new fulfilment centre in Doncaster in summer 2017, creating 500 new full-time permanent jobs.
