Operational Leaders- Military Veterans Spain - 2021
- London, United Kingdom
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 and technical experts who can harness the skills developed within the military to make a significant impact on the business.
We are looking for Area Managers and Operations Managers to join our vast fulfillment and operations network, in various locations across Spain.
