Amazon is seeking high potential graduates to join the Pathways Program and become Amazon's next generation of leaders.
About the Pathways Leadership Development Program
The Pathways Leadership Program is a five year program designed to fast-track your leadership capabilities and career within Customer Fulfillment. For over 10 years, the Amazon Pathways program has attracted innovative, talented individuals who are now highly influential senior leaders across Amazon's global network.
As a Pathways, you will begin as a frontline Area Manager in one of our Fulfillment Centres in Europe. Right away, you will lead a team of 50-100 people and take on progressive assignments specifically designed to test your analytical skills and leadership potential. You will be involved in continuous improvement projects in order to increase efficiency and productivity in your assigned area of responsibility.
After 12-18 months, you will progress into the more strategic role of Operations Manager, with the opportunity to work in a different FC or country and face new challenges.
After a further 12-18 months you will graduate from the Pathways Program as a Senior Operations Manager where you will report directly to the General Manager and have responsibility for inbound or outbound operations at your site.
To support your leadership development, you will receive mentoring and have regular meetings with the General Manager. There are also annual meetings with all other Pathways candidates where together you can discuss your projects, challenges and success stories throughout the program.
