2019 is already off to a great start! Microsoft Store is coming to the Old Continent big time, with Microsoft looking to open its first flagship store location in London.
The company is currently hiring staff for various operations in a wide variety of departments.
As you can see here, the software giant has posted job ads on its Microsoft Careers website, with available positions ranging from cloud technical experts, visual merchandising managers, in-store IT technical support engineers and stock control specialists.
This is what the company says on the page:
“Microsoft Store is the first and best place to experience all that’s possible with Microsoft. At the London flagship Microsoft Store we will create and cultivate meaningful connections with customers, one at a time.
We help our customers achieve more and welcome consumers, small businesses, students, teachers, parents, and gamers to succeed with technology. If you want to develop lifelong skills and take pride in world-class customer service, a career at the London flagship Microsoft Store could be the place for you!”
No information on when the flagship store will open, but apparently the location has a notice indicating that the construction is due to come to an end in April — likely that the store will open a couple of months after.
You now, right after the finishing touches are applied.
Additionally, the company will also be holding a Microsoft Store hiring event this February in London, in what is another sign that the opening of the store is near and approaching.
The Redmond based technology giant first outlined the plans to open a flagship store in the United Kingdom nearly a decade ago. But even though things slow down, it is nice to see the company continuing on.
Expect an official announcement on the opening of the store sometimes in spring.
