Morrisons is hiring 1,000 workers as it ramps up a new partnership with Amazon.

Hannah Horsfall, head of Amazon at Morrisons, said: "At Morrisons, we’re doing everything we can to ensure everyone can order our great value food and have it delivered to their doorstep.

"We’re looking for team players, with good customer service skills that can play their full part in helping to feed the nation."

Orders are placed on Amazon, before being picked in store by Morrisons employees and packed in a dedicated area.

From there, the shopping is collected by Amazon delivery partners and dropped off to the customer within a two-hour delivery window on the same day.
