Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Amazon said it would create 10,000 new jobs in the UK in 2021, taking its workforce to 55,000 in the country”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Amazon will create 10,000 new permanent jobs in the UK in 2021, taking its total workforce in the country to more than 55,000, it said on Friday.

The announcement provides a welcome boost to Britain's precarious labour market, with unemployment running at almost 5%.

Amazon said the new jobs will include roles across its operations network, at its corporate offices and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The group plans to open a new fulfilment centre in Hinckley, central England, creating 700 jobs. It would also open a parcel centre in Doncaster, northern England, and further fulfilment centres in Dartford, near London, Gateshead in northeastern England and Swindon in western England, each creating more than 1,300 permanent jobs, it said.
