People take part in a rally in support of Amazon workers' on strike, outside the Amazon warehouse, in Coventry, Britain, January 25, 2023.
Pay rates will further increase to between 12.30 pounds and 13 pounds an hour from April next year.
The increases mean Amazon’s minimum starting pay will have risen by 20% in two years, and 50% since 2018, it said.
Amazon UK also said it has started recruiting for more than 15,000 seasonal roles across the UK for the festive period.
Last week, supermarket groups Morrisons and Aldi said they were hiring 3,500 and 3,000 extra staff for the Christmas season.
