From new-term time contracts, to funding towards education and training.
  • New Term Time Contracts

    Amazon has launched an innovative new contract that offers parents, grandparents and guardians of school-age children the choice to work term-time only. The new contracts guarantee time off for the six-week Summer break, as well as the two-week Easter and Christmas holiday periods, without affecting the comprehensive range of benefits they receive, including private medical insurance and life assurance.
    As with all roles at Amazon, a current employee could refer a friend or family member to this option, which could also provide similar, required flexibility to a partner at home.

    The new contracts are just one example of how Amazon is working to support employees with childcare needs, giving families more time together.

  • Extra paid parental leave

    To support new parents in balancing work and family life, we offer company paid leave to birth mothers, partners of birth mothers, and secondary adoptive parents employed by Amazon – in addition to the statutory parental leave they’ll already receive. This means more time to spend with your new family member and one less thing to worry about.

  • £8,000 towards education and training

    For those who want to grow their career, we pay up to £8,000 towards learning new skills (within a yearly maximum). This can be used towards a certificate or diploma in qualified fields of study leading to in-demand jobs, and is available after one year of service with us.

    Because we believe there’s nothing more important than developing skills for your future, for the jobs of the future. Even if that means pursuing a career outside of Amazon.
