Looks like an official Apple store is coming to the UAE very soon. A recent listing on Jobs at Apple’s page shows Apple hiring for 26 positions in the UAE, many of which are purely related to a store position such as Store Leader who should inspire teams to deliver measurable results for the store’s various business sectors. You lead a sales force that discovers customers’ needs and delivers solutions to build Apple loyalty. Other positions available to apply for include a Genius and an Inventory Specialist.
Apple CEO, Tim Cook was also in the Emirates a few months back and was making the rounds around popular malls- possibly scouting for a location for an Apple Store. While we don’t have any information on where the store will be located, there was talk about a flagship store in Dubai Mall as well as The Galleria in Abu Dhabi.
