Military Area/Shift Manager

This role focuses on those who have military experience interested in working in the private sector. Amazon’s military recruiting team is available to discuss the many opportunities within Amazon Operations.

At Amazon, thousands of former military are driving innovation and raising the bar on customer experience. On a daily basis, those with military backgrounds are able to apply their knowledge, skills, and leadership abilities in a wide variety of careers – influencing change across the globe.

When we hire you at Amazon, we hire for the future. With unlimited career opportunities, Amazon invests in ensuring our teams are always challenged, constantly learning from each other, and creatively contributing to our next big idea. You will be surrounded by the best innovators of our time and we welcome you to make history with us.




Would you like to work as part of an innovative, fast-paced, and motivated team?

Are you up for creating solutions and solving tomorrow’s operational and logistical challenges today?

Amazon strives to consistently delight customers by efficiently delivering products all over the world. Our teams possess a wide range of skills and expertise, from business analysis and inventory management to engineering. With so many Fulfilment Centers (FC) and Delivery Stations worldwide, Amazon is growing at a pace that requires the best and brightest talent to be brought in to our company to help us continue to make history.

We are seeking Graduate Area and Shift Managers to join our vast fulfilment and operations network, in various locations across the EU. These are positive, self-motivated individuals with just the right combination of leadership skills and professional business acumen. This is a permanent position from day one.

What will you be doing?
You’ll be an inspiring leader in one of the following areas within the FC operations: Receive, Stow, Pick, Pack or Ship. Or you might work at one of our Delivery Stations, where you will work to continuously improve the efficiency of delivery processes, ensuring that customer orders are delivered as quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively as possible.

In this position, you will lead a team or a process from day one. This kind of opportunity isn’t often presented to graduates fresh out of university. At Amazon, however, we trust the people we hire and provide plenty of support to help you hit the ground running. Our culture is very learn-by-doing oriented; you will take control of your career.

Leading by example, you’ll be responsible for the training and integration of your team, while driving progress. This symbiotic relationship also makes this position even more rewarding and impactful, as you strive for excellence together with the team you manage.

You’ll exercise sound judgement, making sure progress and targets are realistic and achievable. And it’ll be worth it; the impact you could have, within one of the world’s biggest, most innovative companies, won’t go unnoticed. With us, you can have a hand in creating the future of operations and logistics.









Key job responsibilities
Alongside positive leadership, the ideal Area/Shift Manager keeps the bigger picture goals in mind:
  • You’ll need to safeguard your team’s safety while at work.
  • You’ll uphold Amazon’s high standards of quality.
  • You’ll demonstrate problem-solving and analytical capabilities.
  • And, last but not least: you’ll strive to improve and streamline processes.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

  • You obtained or are working towards at least Bachelor’s Degree.
  • You are flexible to relocate for the position if needed.
  • You are willing to work in non-traditional shift pattern which may include nights and weekends.
  • You speak fluent Italian and English.


PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Experience in logistics, industrial production, supply chain, quality, continuous improvement or transport.
  • Mastering a third language (German, Polish, Czech, Slovakian, Spanish, or French).
  • 2 years leading teams of 30, or more, people.
  • Master’s degree or equivalent.
