Paris: US online shopping giant Amazon said Thursday it plans to create 2,000 permanent full-time jobs in France this year as consumers are making more and more of their purchases via the internet. “The jobs are at all levels of skills” even if “the overwhelming majority of the positions are for fulfilling orders,” Amazon’s director in France Frederic Duval said. The new jobs will be across Amazon’s distribution centres in France, as well as its offices in the Paris region, and take overall staff to 7,500. Amazon said it has invested more than €2 billion (Dh9.17 billion, $2.5 billion) in France since 2010 and created more than 1,500 jobs in France last year.
