Apple UK is launching Apple Internet Consulting Services (AICS), its own Internet advice and development arm.

The company claims AICS will offer a wide range of technical services capable of handling simple and complex tasks. Apple is offering a "skilled team" and its own technical "talent pool".

The Internet consulting arm of the company offers skills, help and advice in implementing Apple technologies for Web development. The company is also offering technical support and training.

Apple UK is now hosting a Web page devoted to its new venture, and is looking for recruits to join the team. Apple is tempting candidates with the announcement that members of Apple's team will use G4 Titanium PowerBooks. Apple is particularly interested in experienced Unix, Java, QuickTime, integration or project management staff.
