Amazon offers a pathway for ambitious graduates

 June 14, 2017

The Amazon’s Pathways Leadership Development Programme offers ambitious graduates who see themselves in Senior Management roles a fast track to reach their career goals.

Starting week 1 of training in Amazon’s European HQ, Pathways graduates will see themselves progress rapidly thanks to a well-structured programme with plenty of support. If you can rise to the challenge, there is no limit to where you will go within the Amazon business.

Amazon has invested £6.4 billion in the UK economy to build and run its UK business since 2010.

A fast-track into leadership roles

“The people who are successful in the pathways programme are the people who are looking to be the next Vice President of Operations.” says Steven Harman, Director, CEO Customer Fulfillment at Amazon.

“Whenever I’m in an interview, I’m looking for someone who wants to take my job,” he exclaims.

Talented graduates thrive in the opportunities at Amazon

Hear from some of the driven and passionate employees who have found that Amazon’s Pathways Leadership Development Programme is like no other:

“I got promoted almost every year. This is what I like about Amazon. It doesn’t really value tenure, it recognises effort and potential and it will always put you to the next level even before you think you are ready,” says Jonatan Gal, General Manager, INSEAD.

Iris Margulis who works as a Senior Operations Manager has grown her career rapidly on the Amazon Pathways program:

“My progress was relatively quick. I joined as an Area Manager, I then got promoted to Operations Manager and I did that for 6 months. I then joined the launch of the first Amazon Robotics site in the UK, and after another 6 months I was promoted to Senior Operations Manager. I currently lead 7 Operations Managers and around 1,200 associates,” she says.
