Amazon to create 1,000 jobs at new Bristol distribution centre



Amazon is continuing its investment in the UK, with the online retail giant unveiling plans for a new distribution centre near Bristol which will create 1,000 new permanent jobs.

The Seattle-based company plans to start recruiting engineers, operations managers, HR and IT specialists ahead of the facility's opening in 2018.


It already has 13 such centres in the UK, and is on track to open further new warehouses in Doncaster, Warrington and Tilbury later this year.


Amazon said the decision to open another centre just outside of Bristol at Severn Beach was driven by "increasing customer demand".


The announcement comes less than a month after the firm said it was doubling the number of research and development (R&D) specialists it is looking to recruit in London.
