Apple has confirmed plans to open a seventh UK retail store in Manchester's Arndale Centre.

The company has begun recruiting for the store, which it says will open "later this year".

"If you're looking for a rewarding environment in which to build your career using your skills and talents, and if working at Apple has always been your dream job, you might be one of the passionate individuals we're looking for," the company says.

The company is looking for a full complement of staff, including Mac Creatives, Mac Genius and specialist staff, and inventory managers.

News of the store first began emerging last week on local Mac user Nik Fletcher's website, which also hosts a floor plan of the new location.
