Amazon will create 20,000 seasonal roles in the lead up to Christmas

Published: 24 October 2018 - Kiran Grewal

Across its UK network, Amazon has announced it will be creating an additional 20,000 roles.

Earlier this month, Amazon announced that from 1 November it is increasing its minimum wage to £10.50 for the London area and £9.50 for the rest of the UK for all full-time, part-time, temporary (including those hired by agencies), and seasonal workers to help pick, pack and ship customers’ festive orders.

 



Mark Hemming, Regional Director, said: “We look forward to welcoming 1,000 seasonal workers in Doncaster to play an integral role in helping us deliver an exceptional experience for our customers during the Christmas season. We plan all year round for the festive period and the increase in people at our site to provide a positive work environment with a series of fun events that can be enjoyed by everyone.”
