Over 1,200 school children are taking part in our Camp Amazon STEM Workshops, held in partnership with British Science Association during British Science Week, to help inspire the next generation of innovators
We have close to 100 UK sites, and last year Amazon paid business rates of more than £63 million – tens of millions of pounds more than estimates and more than is paid by many well-known high street retailers.
Up to 20MW of solar plus storage systems will be installed on fulfilment centre rooftops across the UK over the coming 18 months. We have also signed a deal ensuring 100% renewable electricity for our own UK buildings.
We’re very excited to celebrate the career milestone that 20 apprentices from our Dunfermline fulfilment centre achieved, completing the prestigious Scottish Modern Apprenticeship in Logistics and Management programmes.
I Found the Right Place, is a collection of fascinating stories from our associates working in fulfillment centres across the UK, sharing their thoughts and feelings about what they like best about working at Amazon and why it is the right place to work for them.
The Career Choice programme pre-pays 95 percent of tuition and associated fees for permanent and fixed-term associates to undertake nationally recognised courses for up to four years, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon.
