Council leader welcomes Amazon jobs announcement
Cllr Jenny Dawe today welcomed the announcement that leading online retailer, Amazon, is to create 900 jobs at a new customer service centre in the city.
"Today's announcement further underlines Edinburgh's global reputation as being a great place to do business.
"Clearly the calibre of our workforce has been a major deciding factor for Amazon - as it was for Virgin Money, Tesco Bank and many others before it - but I'm sure the wonderful, and quite unique, quality of life on offer here will also have been a consideration.
"I'm sure Amazon will get on very well with their new, high-profile neighbours in Waverley Gate, which, I am delighted to say, is now almost completely let."
