1.76 million jobs in Europe.
And counting.

Apple has been operating in Europe for over 35 years and we’re proud to be an engine of growth for the economy, supporting over 1.7 million jobs. Last year, we spent over €10 billion with more than 4,300 European suppliers. Since we launched the App Store in 2008, Europe-based developers have earned over €20 billion in App Store sales worldwide. And this is only the beginning.

Jobs across the region.

You’ll find Apple employees, suppliers and app developers working across Europe, in communities large and small, and in thousands of professional fields.

Our Apple employees.

Apple jobs span a wide range of roles — supply chain, operations, construction, manufacturing, retail, customer support, marketing, engineers — and their ranks continue to grow. AppleCare call centres serve our customers throughout Europe, with 13,000 representatives across the region. And unlike with many companies, both full- and part-time employees are eligible for such benefits as health insurance, matching retirement contributions and an employee stock purchase plan.

Key European Projects

Cork, Ireland

Apple has been based in Cork for over 35 years. We now directly employ around 6,000 people throughout Ireland supporting all aspects of the business. Since 2012, we’ve invested nearly €220 million to develop our Hollyhill campus and have just expanded again with a new building that provides space for 1,400 employees. Apple is Cork’s largest private employer and we are proud that many of the team have been with us for decades.

London, UK

London is home to over 2,500 employees and our expanding workforce will be housed in a new campus at Battersea Power Station. The investment in one of the city’s most recognisable buildings is central to the long-term regeneration of this special 42-acre site on the River Thames.

Naples, Italy

The Apple Developer Academy trains hundreds of students each year in app development at a state-of-the-art centre at the University of Federico II. The one-year programme gives students the skills and experience to turn app ideas into reality. We are also working with five other universities in the region to bring developer skills and training to over a thousand additional students.

Jutland, Denmark

Our first-ever European data centres are bringing jobs and investment to Denmark. They will offer crucial data storage for our customers and run on 100 per cent renewable energy. We are also proud to be investing in local projects to secure new and additional sources of clean power.
