Apple has started placing adverts in recruitment websites seeking temporary salespeople specialising in its iPhone, fueling speculation that the company is gearing up for the launch of the iPhone 5 handset.
The advert is for “full-time iPhone Sales Staff for an exciting project to work 5 days a week (Tuesday-Saturday) for the period 16th August – 29th October within key retail stores”. There are several adverts covering different parts of the UK.
The company is suggesting a one week training session in London, which puts any possible product launch to late August after a sensible period to get used to working in the retail store.
The company is seeking people with “experience of selling/promoting mobile phones or possess advanced user experience of iPhone’s” (grocers apostrophe).
