About us:

Amazon is a company of builders. A philosophy of ownership carries through everything we do – from the proprietary technologies we create to the new businesses we launch and grow. You’ll find it in every team across our company; from providing earth’s biggest selection of products to developing ground-breaking software and devices that change entire industries, Amazon embraces invention and progressive thinking. Amazon is continually evolving; it’s a place where motivated employees thrive, and ownership and accountability lead to meaningful results. It’s as simple as this: we pioneer.

With every order made and parcel delivered, customer demand at Amazon is growing. And to meet this demand, and keep our world-class service running smoothly, we're growing our Operations team across Europe. Delivering hundreds of thousands of products to hundreds of countries worldwide, our Operations teams possess a wide range of skills and experience. Our network of Fulfilment Centres is supported by managers whose teams own the receipt and stowing of inventory, picking, packing and shipping, to ensure that our customers receive what they want, when they want it.

About these internships:

Whatever your background, if you’re motivated by results and driven enough to achieve them, Amazon is a great place to be. Because it’s only by coming up with new ideas and challenging the status quo that we can continue to be the most customer-centric company on earth, we’re all about flexibility: we expect you to adapt to changes quickly and we encourage you to try new things.

Amazon is looking for ambitious and enthusiastic students to join the unique world of Logistics in European Operations as interns. An Amazon internship will provide you with an unforgettable experience in a fast-paced, dynamic and international environment; it will boost your CV and will provide a superb introduction to our Operations activities.

These internships are project-based educational opportunities intended to allow future managers to discover how we lead and develop our teams of associates. Interns will learn how our managers effectively engage their teams to realise their full potential, ensure their performance in order to fulfil our customers’ expectations, encourage a safe and productive environment, and more, within our large and complex Fulfilment Centres.

As an intern you might join one of the following teams: inbound (managing truck reception and unloading, registering products in our systems, stowing products and the management of inventory space), outbound (after a customer orders an item, the picking, rebin, packing, and shipping), ACES (Amazon Customer Excellence Services – benchmarking, sharing best practices and working on continuous improvement projects for various sites) and ICQA (Inventory Control and Quality Assurance).

You will put your analytical skills to test and roll up your sleeves to complete a project that will contribute to improve the functionality and level of service that the Fulfilment Centres provide to our customers.

This will include:

  • Diving deep into data, mapping processes and problems
  • Offering and testing potential solutions and implementing the best one(s)
  • Interacting with highly efficient managers, technology development teams, and frontline associates to think broadly about solutions to the most complex business and operational challenges faced by one of the world’s fastest growing operations network.

Basic Qualifications

We want to hire the world’s brightest minds, and offer them an environment in which they can relentlessly improve the experience for our customers. We are looking for forward-thinkers who take a continuously proactive approach and create a culture of creativity within the workplace.

  • You are currently working towards a 2+ years university degree in logistics, supply chain, production, engineering or a related field
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English (and local language if applying to a country outside the UK)
  • You are willing to work to flexible schedules/shifts hours
  • You are results-driven with analytical skills and the desire to innovate and simplify current processes and practices
  • You should have strong decision making skills, and use sound logic to communicate
  • Evidence of leadership skills – perhaps you are president of a sporting or social club at university or took the lead in charity work or a group project.
  • The personal drive and enthusiasm that makes you stand out from the crowd!

Preferred Qualifications

  • Ability to work successfully in an ambiguous environment, to meet tight deadlines and prioritise workload even when faced with conflicting priorities.
  • Previous work experience – a summer job, internship or full-time role; if it’s in an operations or customer-facing environment, even better.

Benefits

  • Health Care
  • Savings Plan 
  • Income Protection
  • Paid Time Off
  • Employee Stock
  • Relocation Package.
