1,500 jobs coming at Amazon near MK


Amazon is creating more than 1,500 jobs in a variety of roles at its huge Marston Gate fulfilment centre near Milton Keynes.

It’s part of the internet retailer’s announcement it will hire more than 15,000 people across the UK for seasonal positions in its fulfilment and customer service centres to meet customer demand in the build up to Christmas.

The company says temporary workers could move into permanent positions as they did last year when permanent roles were offered to 1,000 temporary associates. Last Christmas on its busiest day customers were ordering items at the rate of 44 each second.
