Job opportunities for SA as Amazon increase investment

Amazon Web Services (AWS) an international brand, says the job opportunities will range from customer service associates to technical experts who will work virtually and provide 24/7 support to Amazon customers in North America and Europe.

The addition of 3,000 permanent and seasonal full-time positions will bring the total permanent workforce in South Africa to 7,000.

This should come as a relief too many in SA as companies and organisations fold due to Covid-19 or economic crunch worldwide.

“We are thrilled with the talent in South Africa and we are excited to add 3,000 skilled jobs this year in Customer Service, and to help keep people working during this unprecedented time,” said Andrew Raichlin, Director of Amazon Customer Service in South Africa.

“The new jobs reflect our continued commitment to South Africa’s economic development, and I am proud to have South Africa be a growing part of our ability to deliver a great experience to Amazon customers around the world and provide employees with the opportunity to work safely from home.”

Ebrahim Patel, the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition: “We welcome the decision by Amazon to locate more of its global services in South Africa. The business process services sector has grown fast, drawing on the skills and talent of young South Africans and a stable infrastructure. The sector has been able to provide world-class support to clients, both locally and internationally.”

Candidates interested in applying must meet the following requirements: completed Matric/Grade 12/NQF Level 4 qualification or higher, excellent command of English and be a South African Citizen.
