How we operate
We have four core principles that guide us in delivering on our mission. These include customer obsession rather than competitor focus, nurturing a passion for invention, maintaining a commitment to operational excellence, and a focus on long-term thinking.
Since 2010 we’ve invested over £9.3 billion in the UK economy to provide convenience, selection and value to UK consumers, while helping to digitally empower hundreds of thousands of small businesses and content creators.
By the end of 2018, we will employ over 27,500 people with a broad range of skills across our UK Head Office in London; Development Centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London; our Customer Service Centre in Edinburgh; our Fulfilment Centres and Delivery Stations (including Prime Now sites) across the UK; our Fashion Photography Studio in Shoreditch; and our Amazon Web Services (AWS) UK Data Centre Region.
