Amazon move creates 3,000 jobs

Amazon move creates 3000 jobsAmazon is to create 3,000 jobs when it moves into its new London HQ in the new year as part of a £1bn investment which will ultimately create more than 7,000 permanent jobs across the UK.
The company is switching its offices from Slough to enable it to hire so many new staff, said UK managing director Christopher North.
The 600,000 sq ft building, dubbed Principal Place, is located near Liverpool Street Station, and will hold more than 5,000 employees. It is also opening a new office in Farringdon. The company has yet to decide which building will be its new UK HQ.
North said: “To support our continued growth in the UK, we have secured this exceptional building, giving us the capacity to hire thousands of new employees in London in the coming years, in addition to the thousands of permanent roles we will create across our UK fulfilment and customer service centres.”
Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, said: “Our city is the perfect home for top tech talent and I am very pleased that Amazon has confirmed their intention to create thousands of new jobs at a major new base in east London. We are proving time and again that we have the right places and people to support this vibrant sector.”
