Apple has become one of the most important companies in the United Kingdom when it comes to generating employment. It is the second company that offers the most jobs, only behind Rentokil Initial, a pest control organization.
The fact that Apple has managed to enter the list of the five companies that generate more jobs in the United Kingdom is very important because it is the only non-British company on this list. Although it is also true that they lost the first position in 2018.
Apple generates around 6,500 jobs in the United Kingdom. In London alone, they already employ more than 2,500 people. And in total, the figure amounts to 130,000 full-time employees internationally.

As reported by the CNBC, this is the list of companies that generate more jobs in the United Kingdom:
The Agincare Group

Marks and Spencer
