E-commerce giant Amazon.com will add over 2,500 permanent jobs in Britain this year, taking the U.S. retail giant’s UK workforce to nearly 28,000, Reuters reported.

The company said the jobs will be in head office, research and development, web services and operations roles.

Apart from nationwide goods deliveries, Amazon’s services include video streaming and a digital home assistant known as Alexa.

Amazon has invested $12.5 billion in its UK operations since 2010. The company already announced in January that it would create 400 jobs at a new fulfilment center in Rugby, central England.
