Popular online retailer, Amazon is set to cut another 9,000 jobs as it seeks to save costs and provides efficient service to its large audience.

Amazon’s Chief Executive Officer Andy Jassy disclosed this in a message to staff that was posted on the company’s website. The workforce reduction follows a previous round of 18,000 layoffs announced in January.

“To those ultimately impacted by these reductions, I want to thank you for the work you have done on behalf of customers and the company.” said the CEO.

The firm, which employs 1.5 million people worldwide, said the cuts would fall mainly in areas including cloud computing and advertising.

However, it did not say which countries would be affected but said the positions would be closed in the next few weeks.

Like many tech giants, Amazon saw sales boom during the pandemic when customers were stuck at home.

But more recently its sales have slowed down as consumers spend less due to the cost of living crisis.

Other companies, including Google and Facebook-owner Meta, have been grappling with how to balance cost-cutting measures with the need to remain competitive.

Last week Meta, which also owns Instagram and WhatsApp, announced plans to cut 10,000 jobs.
