The centre, which will be located in Baldonnell Business Park in Dublin, will provide millions of items to be shipped across Ireland and Europe.

Many positions are already being recruited, such as engineers, HR and IT professionals, as well as health and safety and finance specialists and operations managers.

Recruitment for the teams who pick, pack and ship the items will begin next year.

A second delivery station will also be constructed in Ballycoolin, which will serve customers in Dublin and the surrounding areas, creating over 20 permanent jobs.

The station is expected to be fully operational this autumn. Ireland’s first delivery station was constructed in Rathcoole, Dublin last October.

Vice President of Amazon’s Fulfilment Centre Operations in Europe Stefano Perego stated, “We are delighted to be opening our first fulfilment centre in Dublin enabling us to provide faster delivery times for customers across Ireland,”.
