In expansion mode, the edtech company upGrad has announced plans to hire over 1,000 people in India in the next three months across departments to address the growing demand of the company.
In the past year since the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, the company has witnessed a many-fold jump in subscription, and to tide, over rising demand, it now plans to expand departments including Learning Experience, Delivery, Marketing, and Program, along with Sales which will remain predominant.
According to the edtech company, the hiring will be mostly from its own learners’ talent pool through upGrad Rekrut hiring drive. The fresh Sales recruits will initially work in a ‘Temporary Safe Workplace Bubbles’ across 5-star hotel properties in Mumbai and Bangalore, which will further extend to cities like Hyderabad, Delhi, and Kolkata.
“Our hiring plan is a result of the rapid growth that we have seen in the last 18 months. With global expansions taking shape, we are all set to ramp up our support and business teams to continue meeting the strong demand for lifelong learning that we are experiencing,” upGrad CEO- India, Arjun Mohan said.
