  • Amazon creates 250 jobs in Edinburgh as part of expansion

The US online retailer is to open its first office in Manchester, with room for 600 new jobs in the Hanover Building in the city's Northern Quarter - once the headquarters of the Co-operative Group.

Amazon is to create more than 1,000 more research and development jobs across England and Scotland.

The company is also expanding its offices in Cambridge, where technicians work on the group's Alexa digital personal assistant system, drone development and other Amazon devices.

It has announced it will increase numbers at its "development centres", with a further 180 similar roles to be created in Cambridge.

The Edinburgh expansion will see Amazon take three floors in the Waverley Gate building, where the new recruits will work on advertising technology and personalised shopping.
