Online retail giant Amazon UK is the latest firm to launch its Christmas recruitment drive by advertising for a mammoth 19,000 seasonable jobs. The majority of the festive roles be in the company’s warehouses and customer service centres across the country.
John Tagawa, Amazon’s vice president of UK operations, said: “We are 100% focused on providing an exceptional customer experience and to ensure that we maintain this high level of service during the Christmas period, thousands of seasonal associates will join our teams across the UK.
“There are many people who take up seasonal roles each and every Christmas. We look forward to welcoming them back, as well as the many new faces who will join us for the first time.”
The company has eight distribution centres (otherwise known as fulfilment centres) across the UK in Doncaster, Dunfermline, Gourock, Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Rugeley and Swansea Bay. The retailer also plans to open a new operation up in Dunstable, which will create 500 full-time roles in the Bedfordshire town.
