Amazon to create up to 1,000 new jobs at three United Kingdom sites

Amazon creates 600 technology jobs in Manchester

"Greater Manchester is home to the UK's largest creative, digital and technology cluster outside of London, and Amazon joins the likes of Jaguar Land Rover and GCHQ - world-leading organisations that have also recently announced major investments in the city, creating hundreds of new tech jobs and utilising the wealth of knowledge and expertise that is available here".

In the latest phase of Amazon's United Kingdom expansion, the firm said it was also creating space for 250 more high-skilled roles in Edinburgh, where it is taking three floors of the Waverley Gate building.

And, while many firms have put a halt on investment in UK-based staff and offices, while the outcome of Brexit is unknown, Amazon has once again shown its confidence in the country's technical skill.

Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary, said the new positions were an "enormous vote of confidence in the UK". The six-storey, 90,000 sq. ft. site will give Amazon capacity to create at least 600 new roles in the city.

A new Manchester corporate office is to be opened next year and capacity increased in Amazon's Scotland Development Centre in Edinburgh and Cambridge Development Centre.

Extra staff will also be added in Edinburgh and Cambridge, where specialists work on machine-learning, drones, and the AI assistant Alexa.

The development centre in Edinburgh will gain the capacity for 250 new roles on three floors in the city's Waverley Gate building.

The site will be Amazon's first United Kingdom corporate office outside of London.

Sheppard Robson has been appointed as the designer of the Hanover development for Amazon. Additionally, Amazon has 17 fulfilment centres and over 40 delivery stations in the UK.

Since 2010, Amazon said it had invested more than 9.3 billion pounds ($12.15 billion) in Britain and was on course to employ 27,500 people - including more than 6,500 in its corporate, AWS and R&D divisions - by the end of the year.

Amazon's investment in United Kingdom innovation enables businesses large and small to boost their productivity and reach millions of customers around the world.
