Amazon continues its commitment to grow in Spain, where it will create 2,000 new permanent jobs over the course of 2022, which will allow it to finish this year with a total workforce of 20,000 permanent employees. “At Amazon, we offer all types of jobs for all types of people. In the last two years, we have created an average of more than 100 permanent positions per week nationwide, all with a competitive salary and a complete benefit package such as pension plans or life insurance,” says Amazon Customer Fulfillment Director in France, Italy and Spain, Fred Pattje during the presentation of the #SeasComoSeas campaign, which encourages citizens to find out which position they find best among the jobs offered by the company.

In concrete terms, the average salary of Amazon employees in Madrid and Barcelona is 1,700 euros per month, which is 45% above the cross-industry minimum salary (SMI). The multinational has indicated that it is currently hiring people of all profiles and educational levels, including more than 500 positions in technology roles, as well as cloud experts and solution architects for Amazon Web Services. In this way, the e-commerce giant, which has a logistics network of more than 30 centers, would become one of the top ten employers in Spain and further advance its goal of reaching 25,000 permanent employees by the end of 2025.

The Director of Amazon Customer Fulfillment in France, Italy and Spain also highlighted the indirectly created jobs marketplace in Spain via the 12,000 Spanish SMEs that sell their products on the platform. “These SMEs are increasing their workforce as around 25% have expanded their teams,” Pattje pointed out. Regarding the entry into force of the new labor reform, the multinational has recognized that “it hasn’t had that much of an impact” as for several years it has opted to employ permanent staff and only hire temporary workers where permitted. In this way, 36% of the current Amazon workforce in Spain are women, 38% are under 30 years old and have workers from 100 countries.

On the other hand, the director of Amazon Consumption Spain and Italy, Alfonso Serrano, explained that the pandemic is “a complicated moment”, a time when the company has invested 150 million euros to face the new situation and to are changing 150 processes to ensure “the safety and health conditions of employees and deliveries to customers”. “There were changes on many levels and we were also responsible for the deliveries at the time. We have created an environment with more flexibility, which has remained in the company for the time being,” explained Serrano.

In 2021, Amazon recorded gross revenues from its operations in Spain totaling €6,000 million, up 11% from €5,400 million in the previous year. It also contributed 11.8% more to the state treasury last year, at over 292 million euros.
