Apple have started advertising jobs for their much-anticipated Edinburgh store.

The company has shops in both Aberdeen and Glasgow but has not opened one in the Scottish capital.

Rumours the company are to set up shop in an empty building on Princes Street have been circulating for some time, with forums full of talk of the possible site.

Earlier this year it was reported the company had signed a lease for a shop at the east end of the street opposite Waverley station, on a site formerly occuped by Burger King and Waterstones.

On Wednesday adverts went up on Apple’s recruitment site for positions at an Edinburgh store.

Looking for everything from a manager to the famous Apple store 'geniuses', the ads do not have a closing date or specify when or where the shop will be opening.

When approached about the job adverts, Apple did not reply.
