The world's largest online retailer announced that it is hoping to hire up to 2,000 more people in the UK within the next two years.
Once in employment, the new members of staff will provide their services to the new offices that Amazon is in the process of creating.
Already, 600 permanent positions have been accounted for after the retail giant opened a fulfilment centre in Hemel Hempstead.
However, Jeff Bezos, chief executive of Amazon, acknowledged that the company plans to open another 18 fulfilment centres across the UK this year alone.
Prime minister David Cameron commented: "This is great news, not only for those individuals who will find work, but for the UK economy."
Mr Bezos founded Amazon.com back in 1994, with the business originally being based out of his garage but soon became the largest online retailer in the world.
