Overview

A view of a street in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh's reputation as a place to live, work, visit, and study has led thousands of businesses to expand or relocate into the city, many of them from overseas.

Edinburgh is also a popular base for not-for-profit bodies. International organisations including the British-Irish Council and the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization are headquartered in Edinburgh, along with international charities such as Water Witness, First Aid Africa, and the European arm of Mercy Corps

Amazon’s customers are diverse, and having a global team is one of the best ways for us to understand their needs and serve those customers well. It’s why Edinburgh continues to be the perfect location for us. The creative environment, high quality of living, skilled international workforce and excellent universities are world-renowned.
