More than 170 of the jobs will be at Amazon’s development centres in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London.
The tech giant said the new hires see its UK workforce grow to more than 29,500.
Last year the group added 2,500 permanent jobs in the UK.
Amazon has invested more than £9.3bn in its UK operations since 2010.

"The UK is a fantastic hub for global talent and the exciting, innovative work that takes place here benefits Amazon’s customers around the world."
