End of year celebrations: Amazon plans to hire 12,000 seasonal workers in France
Amazon plans to hire 12,000 seasonal workers in France for the end-of-year holiday season, a high point in online consumption and commerce, the American giant announced on Wednesday.
“The positions are to be filled in the French logistics network of Amazon, which includes distribution centers, sorting centers and local delivery agencies”, indicates the group, which specifies that its workforce will reach “14,500 employees on permanent contracts at the end of the year ”.
“Employees who join Amazon during the holiday season will have an important role in helping prepare, pack and ship orders,” says Amazon, which is riding the growth of e-commerce further accelerated by the Covid-19 epidemic and health restrictions on physical businesses.
In early September, the company said it wanted to hire 55,000 people in the United States, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region in office positions (human resources, marketing, tech), while it has already recruited more than 450,000 people on American soil since the start of the pandemic.
At the end of 2020, Amazon had 1.3 million employees worldwide.
