Contractors with specialist skills in the technology sector, will be interested to hear that Amazon has announced plans to take on more workers in its London Digital Centre.

Amazon will be specifically looking for graphic designers and software developer experts to work on improving new digital media projects, such as the use of game consoles, smartphones and televisions.

The online retailer will be looking to take on 100 new positions within the London based centre over the next few months, which will be available to permanent workers, as well as IT contractors, should they need to cover spikes in demand.

Paula Byrne, managing director at the development centre, said, “We have always known that there is a wealth of tech talent here in London and we continue to look for the most creative minds in the UK to work on the next generation of TV and film services for Amazon customers all over the world.

“There has never been a more exciting time in the technology world, with constant innovation resulting in exceptional experiences for consumers, and we are looking for 100 new recruits to play an integral part in the future of Amazon’s digital offering,”

The news comes just four months after Amazon announced its plans to expand its computing department, which created 2,000 new jobs.  At the time Prime Minister David Cameron said of the online retail store, ‚ÄúThis is great news, not only for those individuals who will find work, but for the UK economy. This shows that the UK has the infrastructure and talent to continue to attract major investments from leading companies such as Amazon.”
