US e-commerce company Amazon announced the creation of 1000 new permanent jobs in its new logistic centre in Dos Hermanas near Seville to be recruited this summer. The centre will be equipped with Amazon robotics technology, to supply the high demand on the Spanish market (becoming the 4th  automatized centre in Spain). This announcement comes after the company created 200 jobs in Murcia last February and 600 in the rest of the country during 2019. The recruitment process is initially planned during spring . New employees will be covered by the Collective Agreement of the Sevilla logistics sector. Amazon now employs around 7,000 workers in Spain and says it has invested 2.9 bn euro in the country - in infrastructure, wages etc - since 2011.
