Supporting and Celebrating Employees
Amazon’s more than 1.3 million employees around the world are the heart and soul of the company—every day and throughout the festive season. In the UK, pay starts at a minimum of between £10 and £11.10 p/h depending on location, for all full-time, part-time, temporary, and seasonal roles in Amazon’s fulfilment centres, sort centres, and delivery stations. Employees are offered a comprehensive benefits package, including private medical insurance, life assurance, income protection, subsidised meals, and an employee discount – which combined are worth more than £700 annually – as well as a company pension plan.

This year, Amazon has created 10,000 new permanent jobs, now employing over 55,000 employees across the UK. In addition, the company has also created 1,000 new fully-funded apprenticeship roles, as well as a £2.5m Apprenticeship Fund to help small businesses across England upskill their workforces.

Amazon is also investing £10 million over three years to train up to 5,000 employees in new skills in the UK and support the government’s investment programme. This training will be offered through an innovative programme called Career Choice that provides funding for skills development through nationally recognised courses of up to £8,000 over four years. The programme pays course fees for employees who have expressed interest in pursuing careers outside the company—and thereby boosts the skills and employability of workers across the country.
