Apple targets developing the supply chain in Vietnam through a large demand for local personnel undertaking the related positions.
|Since June 4, Apple has posted 15 job advertisements in Vietnam |
The iPhone maker’s official recruitment website shows dozens of open positions in Vietnam for roles including mechanical quality manager, operations and supply chain management, trading analyst, material manager, camera module designer, and customer manager, among others.
Since June 4, Apple has posted 15 job advertisements in Vietnam. Previously, on May 21, the company was also looking for a regional manager in Ho Chi Minh City. The company was looking for someone with more than 12 years of experience in similar positions.
Applications for these positions are required to fulfill several requirements, including five years of working experience in related fields, good command of the English language, and willingness to work at factories in Shenzen and Shanghai, China.
This recruitment drive shows that Apple is paying more attention to local manufacturing after reloacting some of its Macbook and Airpods production to Vietnam last year.
According to nhipsongkinhte.com, recruited personnel may be in charge of collaborating with and supervising electronic component suppliers in Vietnam and China to prevent supply chain interruptions.
In previous years, Apple has repeatedly posted recruitment notices for engineers and sales managers, among others, suggesting plans to expand in Vietnam. However, there have been no further signs of activity as the country has yet to have an official Apple Store like Thailand or Singapore.
Currently, the identity of Apple’s personnel in Vietnam has yet to be revealed. Nevertheless, according to an unofficial source, many of the company's employees are well-known in local industry circles due to long experience in working at other famous technology brands.
