Amazon creates another 1200 jobs in the North West

1200 jobs will be created at a new fulfilment centre in Bolton, bringing the total jobs created in the region to 3500. The centre, part of Amazon's expansion of its fulfilment centre network in response to growing customer demand, will see Amazon robots in place alongside a 1,200 strong workforce.

Amazon opened four centers past year, creating more than 3,500 jobs.

Last year, unfazed by the UK's European Union referendum outcome in favour of Brexit, Amazon announced that it would open warehouses in Daventry, Doncaster, Warrington and Tilbury in 2017, creating more than 3,500 new permanent full-time jobs.

Bolton will be the third Amazon fulfilment centre in the North West and will take the number of permanent jobs Amazon has created in the region to more than 3,500, as it expands its United Kingdom operation to meet increasing customer demands. "We are thrilled to begin recruitment for 1,200 new permanent roles in Bolton with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one".

AMAZON has confirmed that its new Bolton hub will open in 2018.

The online retailer said it would be seeking new recruits across the employment spectrum from operations managers to engineers, human resource executives to IT specialists, along with a team to process, pick, pack and ship customer orders. The retailer is also to open a new centre at Severn Beach, Bristol next year, also featuring Amazon Robotics.
