Recruitment of staff has begun as Apple Inc plans to open its first Apple Store in Taiwan, according to Taipei Times.

Apple released a list of job ads on its Taiwan site, seeking candidates for retail positions, such as “store leader,” “expert,” “manager” and “genius,” a position unique to Apple Store responsible for helping customers with questions on Apple products.

In a statement released by Apple, the company confirmed the recruiting drive was for staff at its first Apple Store in Taiwan, which is to be located in Taipei.

The company did not disclose the exact date when the store would be opened or where it would be located, and the job ads only gave descriptions of the work, but no information about pay, benefits or work location.

Apple Store currently operates outlets in 19 countries or regions, including Japan, China, Hong Kong and Macau in Asia, while other markets are served by its online store or brick-and-mortar outlets of licensed retailers, such as Studio A Electronic Corp (晶實科技) and Data Express Infotech Co (德誼數位科技) in Taiwan.
