Apple India’s “Store Expansion Programme”

This morning, I noticed this listing on Apple’s Jobs website. The listing is for Training Delivery – India for Apple India in Bangalore, but I found the job summary very interesting (emphasis mine):

Due to a store expansion programme, we are seeking a trainer to work alongside the current training team.

According to an ET report in late March, the company plans to triple its exclusive stores in the country to 200 by 2015 and has been in talks with the government of India to relax the ‘local-sourcing’ clause in its policy on FDI in single-brand retail.

Apple has also recently hired Angela Ahrendts as its senior vice president of retail and online stores and I’m definitely looking forward to her work in the coming months.
