Amazon to create 950 jobs in Scotland


    ONLINE retailer Amazon is to create 950 jobs across two locations in Scotland.

    The company will open a fulfilment centre in Dunfermline – bringing 750 full-time posts to Fife – and an additional 200 jobs will be created at its existing centre in Gourock, which packs ship items for Amazon customers.

    The online company is also expected to create a further 1,500 temporary jobs at peak periods, such as Christmas.

    Making the announcement at the Scottish Parliament today (Thur), First Minister Alex Salmond said: “Amazon has established itself as one of the world’s leading online retailers and I am delighted with its decision to expand its Scottish operations and to create 950 jobs.
