Amazon created more than 3,200 permanent jobs in Spain in 2018, which means that in a single year it tripled its workforce to 4,800 workers, and doubled its job creation forecast for last year, initially set at 1,600 jobs .
The jobs created include positions for people of all profiles, levels of training and skills, from engineers and software developers to positions of initial level in the warehouse, the company reported Wednesday, which since 2011 has invested more than 1,100 million euros in the country.
Many of the jobs were generated in the logistics centers of San Fernando de Henares and Getafe (Madrid), as well as in El Prat de Llobregat and Martorelles (Barcelona) and in the 8 logistics stations located throughout the country.
For the Director of Operations of Amazon in Spain, Fred Pattje, this creation of permanent employment in logistics centers and throughout the network demonstrates the company's commitment to the country.
"This will allow us to further improve our support to Spanish customers and the growing number of small and medium-sized independent companies that sell on Amazon and use our logistics," said the manager.
"It is still 'the first day' for Amazon in Spain and we will continue to work hard to provide the best possible products and services for our customers, as well as to help SMEs and local entrepreneurs continue to be successful in Spain and the rest of the world. ", underlined the director of the e-commerce company in Spain and Italy, Mariangela Marseglia.
