Online retail giant Amazon announced earlier this month 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, and seasonal workers to help pick, pack and ship its customers’ festive orders.
Stefano Perego, Amazon’s director of UK customer fulfilment, said: “We prepare year-round for the festive season and we’re excited to have over 20,000 seasonal positions available this year to help delight our customers.
“We look forward to welcoming back seasonal workers who return year-after-year to work at Amazon and welcome new faces to the seasonal team.”
Mark Hemming, regional director, added: “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.”Recruiters love this COMPLETE set of Accredited Recruitment & HR Training – View Training Brochure
