Apple is beginning to recruit retail staff for an as-yet unannounced Apple Store, due to open somewhere in the Greater London area of the UK.

London is already home to some of Apple's most prestigious Stores, with the most high-profile ones being Apple Covent Garden, and Apple Regent Street, in the heart of the city.

There are five Stores with London addresses, plus Apple lists a further eight in what can be described as the Greater London area. Now a new store is to open and while there has been no announcement, nor any reported construction work, Apple has started advertising for staff for the new location.

Currently the only role advertised on Apple's own job page is for that of a Specialist. It's not clear how many positions are available, but Apple specifies that it is recruiting full-time, part-time, and also part-time temporary staff.

"Do you love how it feels to encourage others?" reads the job ad. "As a Specialist, you help create the energy and excitement around Apple products, providing the right solutions and getting products into customers' hands."

"You understand that the Apple Store is dedicated to delivering a customer experience that's unlike any other," it continues. "It starts with you discovering customers' needs. And with the support of your store team members, you match those needs with the right products."

While this is Apple's first new UK store since Apple Edinburgh in 2014, some of the existing locations have undergone major renovations since they originally opened.

    I wonder where you'd put another store in London. Perhaps somewhere in the City of London to balance the two in the west end?

    This could be for the new Battersea Power Station redevelopment site. Their office is there why not house the retail store as well.

    The new US Embassy is there are well. This replaces the (in)famous one in Grovesnor Square which was the centre for a huge anti-Vietnam War march in the late 1960's.

    The store in Westfield London (White City) was fully closed in December - behind construction walls along with the unit next to it. Temporary stores were dotted around the rest of the mall, separated into a smaller retail store and then express pickup etc. Not sure what the plan is for the previous store - if they are renovating it, or combining both units which would make make it large enough to be a flagship location. The advert could be for this.
