Area Manager Military Veterans Midlands UK 2020
At Amazon we’re constantly looking for leaders who can invent, think big, have a bias for action, and who want to deliver for customers, those principles look very familiar to the men and women who served their country in the armed forces. And also their spouses.
Due to Amazon’s constant and sustained growth, we need strong, dynamic leaders who can harness the skills developed within the military to make a significant impact on the business.
We are looking for Area Managers to join our vast fulfillment and operations network, in various locations across the Midlands.
You’ll be responsible as a leader for one of the main teams in your FC. Along with your peers, you’ll ensure that all workflows run smoothly and that customer expectations are met, if not exceeded.
In the logistics team you enter and lead, we’ll be entrusting a team of approximately 80 to 120 associates to you (up to 250 in peak). You’ll drive the training and integration of your team, while motivating and inspiring forward progress. All the while, you’ll exercise good judgement, making sure progress and critical metric targets are worked towards and met.
While you achieve this, you’ll ensure motivation, engagement and performance:
· You’ll need to safeguard your team’s safety, promoting Amazon’s Health and Safety standards,
· You’ll lead cross-functional teams, tasked with solving operational problems,
· You’ll uphold Amazon’s high standards of process quality,
· You’ll strive to improve and streamline processes,
· You’ll actively share and promote best practices with your colleagues and network
About our rewards
We’ll expect you to go the extra mile, but we’ll also make sure you’re well rewarded. As well as a competitive salary and stock units, we offer a whole host of other benefits, including an employee discount.
There are other, more intangible rewards too. Like our commitment to your development, a refreshing lack of hierarchy, the chance to work with some of the brightest minds in the industry, plenty of team spirit and an informal atmosphere – suits and ties are few and far between.
Operations make sure we live up to our promise: to deliver Earth’s biggest selection of products around the world come rain, hail or snow. We want to be a company where customers from every country will recognize, value and trust our products and our services. But getting the right product to the right place at the right time – every time – is no easy task.

We’ll give you all the help you need to do the best job possible and encourage you to develop every day. Plus you’ll be part of a supportive team, working with colleagues, learning from them and collaborating to get the job not just done, but done brilliantly.
