Amazon – Hiring for our Future Business Leaders #AmazonGradsPioneer

Location: UK wide - Please note that this position will not be based in a central city location, therefore the candidate must be open to relocation.

Amazon strives to consistently delight customers by efficiently delivering products all over the world. Our teams possess a wide range of skills and expertise, from business analysis and inventory management to engineering. With so many Fulfilment Centers (FC) and Delivery Stations worldwide, Amazon is growing at a pace that requires the very best talent to be brought in to our company to help us continue to make history.

We are seeking Graduate Area and Shift Managers to join our vast fulfilment and operations network, in various locations across the EU. These are positive, self-motivated individuals with just the right combination of leadership skills and professional business sense. This is a permanent position from day one.

What will you be doing?
You will be an inspiring leader in one of the following areas within the FC operations: Receive, Stow, Pick, Pack or Ship. Or you might work at one of our Delivery Stations, where you will work to continuously improve the efficiency of delivery processes, ensuring that customer orders are delivered as quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively as possible.

In this position, you will take care of a team or a process as soon as you start. This kind of opportunity isn’t often presented to graduates fresh out of university. At Amazon, however, we trust the people we hire and provide plenty of support to help to set you up for success. Our culture is very learn-by-doing oriented; you will take control of your career.

Leading by example, you’ll be responsible for the training and integration of your team, while progressively driving progress. This symbiotic relationship also makes this position even more rewarding and impactful, as you strive for excellence together with the team you lead.

You’ll exercise sound judgement, making sure progress and targets are realistic and achievable. And it’ll be worth it; the impact you could have, within one of the world’s biggest, most innovative companies, won’t go unnoticed. With us, you can have a hand in creating the future of operations and logistics.

Alongside positive leadership, the ideal Area/Shift Manager keeps the bigger picture goals in mind:
• You’ll need to safeguard your team’s safety while at work.
• You’ll uphold Amazon’s high standards of quality.
• You’ll demonstrate problem-solving and analytical capabilities.
• And, last but not least: you’ll strive to improve and streamline processes.

Do you qualify?
• You obtained or are working towards a Bachelor’s Degree.
• You are flexible to relocate for the position if needed.
• You are willing to work in non-traditional shift pattern which may include nights and weekends.
• You speak fluent English.
• Though not required, it’s even better if you have previous work experience.
• Do you have an MBA and more than 2 years of work experience? Why not consider applying for our Pathways Operation Manager position?

We’re looking forward to receiving your application, preferably in English.
