Hiring activities have shown 13% growth in a year-on-year comparison, reports TimesJobs RecruiteX June 2018 data. In YoY analysis, the index witnessed an upward swing by 13 points with the index moving from 60 points in June 2017 to 73 points in June 2018.
The month-on-month analysis, however, reported subdued hiring in June 2018 as compared to May 2018. Consumer Durables/FMCG sector (up by 11 points as compared to May 2018) posted most jobs in June 2018, followed by BFSI, IT/Telecom, Healthcare and Automobiles sectors subsequently.
The TimesJobs RecruiteX June 2018 report has also revealed that Sales/Business Development roles were most sought after. Talent demand was also high for IT/Telecom and Customer Services/Tele-calling profiles respectively. This indicates that organisations in these sectors are ramping up the respective workforce steams.
“June 2018 has been marked with encouraging news and announcements of business expansion, especially in the FMCG sector. The RecruiteX data for June 2018 points that FMCG had most jobs in this time and Sales/Business Development roles were most sought after. This clearly reflects that there is a positive sentiment in the economy and organisations are aiming for business growth. FMCG is a major contributor to economy and hopefully, this momentum will continue for some more time,” said Ramathreya Krishnamurthy, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig.
Among cities, just like May 2018, June 2018 also recorded most hiring activities in Tier II cities. Jaipur, Vadodara and Hyderabad recorded significant jobs and career opportunities. Mumbai and Delhi-NCR were among the top ten hiring cities.
