Amazon Creates 400 New Jobs in Peterborough by Turning Seasonal Staff into Permanent Employees


Hundreds of seasonal workers at a leading Peterborough company were given a late Christmas gift when their jobs were made permanent.

Four hundred staff at online retailing giant Amazon have just been told their “only-Christmas” jobs are now all year round.

The announcement takes the workforce at the fulfilment centre at Kingston Park, Fletton, to more than 1,200. It makes the retailer one of the city’s elite companies – employing more than 1,000 staff.

John Tagawa, Amazon’s vice-president of UK operations, said: “We’re delighted so many people who helped deliver a first rate level of service for our customers at Christmas will join the Amazon team at Peterborough on a permanent basis with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits from day one.
