Congratulations to the Student Programs team, whose hard work has resulted in Amazon winning the Most Popular Graduate Recruiter in Retail Award at the UK TargetJobs Graduate Awards 2019.

Held on Thursday 4th April, the UK’s largest early careers recruitment awards received almost 100,000 individual votes directly from undergraduates, apprentices and school leavers. More than 1,500 guests were present at Grosvenor House, London.

Amazon has now won the award four times in a row. This year also saw Amazon nominated for the first time in the Most Popular Graduate Recruiter in IT and Technology category, coming in second.

This announcement follows news that Amazon ranked #1 for LinkedIn’s 2019 Top Companies in the UK, placing as the number one place where UK professionals want to work.

“It’s brilliant to see so many undergraduates, graduates and apprentices voting for Amazon in the UK TargetJobs Awards,” said Sandra Nuoramo, EMEA Brand Manager, Student Programs, Amazon. “Our Student Programs team is proud to be recognised by this award for the fourth time, and we look forward to hiring more great talent to help build the future with us.”

It was also revealed that Amazon has now been ranked as a top 20 graduate employers in this year’s Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list. The rankings are based on almost 20,000 final year UK university students being surveyed by the research arm of Times 100, with students asked: “Which employer do you believe offers that best graduate opportunities?”
