Apple is recruiting 25 people in Vietnam, mostly for posts pertaining to operations and supply chain.

Most of the job opportunities had been posted on Apple’s career website this month. On July 23 and 29, the U.S. tech giant posted information for the three posts of new product introduction-operation program manager (NPI OPM).

Most of the 25 posts are for operations and supply chain workers in Hanoi, and sales and business development staff in Ho Chi Minh City. Some posts are for hardware engineers in charge of camera development working in both cities.

For managerial posts, Apple requires candidates to have five to 10 years’ experience in hi-tech industries, and a good command of English.

Since early 2020, Apple has recruited some engineers and managers for software, screen quality, operation and product management units in Hanoi and HCMC.

Apple recruitment started when it shifted production of new products to Vietnam, which currently hosts 21 suppliers of the U.S. giant, up 1.5 times against 2018. These suppliers include Samsung, LG Display, Intel, Biel Crystal, Foxconn, Luxshare, Goertek and Compal.

Many big assembling partners of Apple have factories in the three northern provinces of Bac Ninh, Bac Giang and Vinh Phuc. Many factories assemble AirPod headphones, Apple watches and Homepod Mini speakers.

Early this year, Foxconn signed a $270-million project on producing laptops and tables in Bac Giang. According to many sources, Foxconn’s new facility would assemble iPads and MacBooks for Apple.
