Apprenticeship opportunities at Amazon have never been more exciting. This year we’ll be offering 1,000 new full-time apprenticeship roles in 25 different schemes to match a diverse range of skillsets and ambitions – from automation engineering to broadcast production, robotics to safety technician.

Over 500 new apprenticeships will be offered to our existing workforce, providing opportunities to retrain and gain new skills leading to an exciting new career path. Apprenticeships exclusively for Amazon employees range from becoming a team leader through to a coaching practitioner.

An apprenticeship is a perfect way to combine theoretical learning with practical, hands-on experience, all while being paid to train. Once qualified, apprentices will have the potential to work across Amazon’s UK sites including fulfilment centres, delivery stations, sortation centres, the UK head offices in London and Manchester, and the three development centres in Edinburgh, Cambridge and London.

The programs span a variety of roles across our business and across the UK, lasting between 14 months and four years. The roles, which pay minimum of £10.80 p/h in the London area and £9.70 p/h in other parts of the UK, up to £30,000 a year for degree-level apprenticeships, include 100 degree-level apprenticeships in automation engineering, project management, software development and chartered management.
“We are proud to be creating new opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds across the UK to gain skills through our apprenticeship programmes in 25 different fields, from logistics to robotics. An Amazon apprenticeship offers an exciting career path, creating opportunities within our local communities across the UK and helping our own employees retrain and gain new skills, at a time when investing in people and jobs has never been more important.”
