Amazon joins technology flow into Sydney

Global internet giant Amazon is set to expand its footprint in Australia.

A market brief has been issued to leasing agents for office space in Sydney and then Melbourne. It marks the official arrival of the technology and online retailer in the Asia-Pacific region and jobs for administration, technology support, sales and corporate staff.

Amazon has been looking for industrial space in Sydney and Melbourne for the past three years for a distribution centre to store goods for local customers to save on rising freight prices. It remains in the market, but wants to establish an office presence.
