PARTNERS

Amazon seeks to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. Our mission is to continually raise the bar of the customer experience by using the internet and technology to empower consumers to find, discover and buy anything, and empower businesses and content creators to maximise their success. We’re always looking to invent on behalf of our customers and offer new services that improve the experience and offerings we provide them. Our business has changed and expanded a lot over the past two decades to meet customer demands, and today, we strive to deliver on our mission in three ways: constantly improve the shopping and entertainment experience; design smart, great-value consumer technology devices, with advanced voice recognition technology, and provide digital and physical infrastructure and support services to empower and maximise the success of businesses and content creators. To deliver for our customers, we are on track to have 24,000 permanent employees across our business by the end of this year working in our Head Office, Development Centres, Fashion Photography Studio, Customer Service Centre, Fulfilment Centres, Delivery Stations, and Amazon Web Services across the UK.
