Our innovative Engineering departments design, implement, and maintain fulfilment centres. This encompasses several different areas – process engineering, capacity/demand planning, material handling equipment design and implementation, fulfilment centre project management, construction management, and packaging engineering. In turn, there’s opportunity for professional growth.
Amazon is the perfect place to start your career in automation engineering maintenance. As one of the world’s largest retail companies, we have an unrivalled range of equipment, technologies and facilities, so there are a huge variety of projects you can work on during the programme. Engineered and manufactured products and systems that Engineering Technicians work on could involve mechanical, electrical, electronic, electromechanical and fluid power components/systems.
Alongside extensive development of your technical skills, you also grow your abilities in crucial complementary areas like organisation, prioritisation, data analysis and problem solving techniques, teamwork, communication, and presentation skills.
Not only will you receive invaluable learning, development and professional experience, you also gain a number of externally recognised qualifications. You will graduate into a Multi-Skilled Maintenance Engineer position on successful completion of the programme, where we will continue your development, allowing you to grow with the business. Successful completion of the apprenticeship enables you to apply to become an Associate Member of a Chartered Institute (IMechE).
“I chose an apprenticeship over university or work because I can study towards my qualifications, gain the practical knowledge and also earn money at the same time.”
