Amazon to open fulfilment centre in Warrington

Amazon yesterday (Thursday April 27) announced that it will create 1,200 permanent jobs with the opening of a new fulfilment centre at Warrington in Cheshire.

The online retail giant currently has 12 fulfilment centres in the UK at Doncaster, Coalville (Leicestershire), Daventry, Dunfermline, Dunstable, Gourock, Hemel Hempstead, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Peterborough, Rugeley and Swansea Bay.

These will be joined by three more by the end of the year. Warrington, along with Doncaster and Tilbury, will begin operating in the autumn.

Amazon will start recruiting later this year for a range of new roles at Warrington, including operations managers, engineers, HR and IT specialists. People interested in applying for jobs at Amazon should visit www.myamazonjob.com/fulfillment-centers/warrington

Amazon said it is increasing the size of its UK fulfilment centre network by 15 to meet increasing customer demands, expand selection and enable SMEs selling on Amazon Marketplace to scale their business.

In addition, the first dedicated UK receive centre will open in Coventry in 2018. It will act as a central hub to receive and sort millions of products sold on Amazon.co.uk each year. Recruitment for 1,650 full time permanent jobs at Coventry will begin next year.
