Global online retailer Amazon announced a further expansion of its United Kingdom operations on Friday (13 October) with the creation of another 1,200 new "full-time permanent jobs" at its Bolton warehouse or "Fulfilment Centre" as it calls them. The centre, part of Amazon's expansion of its fulfilment centre network in response to growing customer demand, will see Amazon robots in place alongside a 1,200 strong workforce.
The move would be the company's third warehouse in the North West of England and will take the number of permanent jobs Amazon has created in the region to more than 3,500.
This week's announcement comes the recent opening of Amazon fulfilment centres in Daventry, Doncaster, Warrington and Tilbury.

D'après lui, les smartphones prévus en 2018 chez Apple abandonneront purement et simplement le Touch ID au profit du Face ID . Apple serait décidé à effacer l'erreur dès l'an prochain en équipant tous les iPhone de la caméra TrueDepth.
"Our ability to expand in the North West of England is the result of two things: incredible customers and an outstanding workforce", said Stefano Perego, Amazon's director of United Kingdom customer fulfilment.
Amazon has started recruiting for a range of new roles for the fulfilment centre, including operations managers, engineers, HR and IT specialists.
AMAZON has confirmed that its new Bolton hub will open in 2018. "We are thrilled to begin recruitment for 1,200 new permanent roles in Bolton with competitive wages and comprehensive benefits starting on day one". The retailer is also to open a new centre at Severn Beach, Bristol next year, also featuring Amazon Robotics.
