September 12, 2019

India Inc. recruiters never stop hunting for new blood (fresh talent), but it seems ‘old’ (read experienced professionals) is the new ‘fresh’. As TimesJobs RecruiteX, a monthly recruitment index that records the demand and supply of talent shows the demand for senior hires is on the rise. 

 

Amid the fear of economic slowdown and speculations about the return of recession, hiring for senior professionals with 20+ years of experience has noted a double-digit growth (17%), reveals TimesJobs RecruiteX. In Y-o-Y comparison, senior executives in this experience bracket recorded 28% growth. 

 

This could mean only two things, either India Inc is replacing the old ‘non-performers’ or creating new positions citing business expansion/growth/new technology. 

 

TimesJobs RecruiteX is a monthly recruitment index that records the demand and supply of talent. Overall, August 2019 noted 11% growth in Y-o-Y analysis of talent demand. 

 

Commenting on this, Sanjay Goyal, Business Head, TimesJobs & TechGig said, “This month FMCG sector noted the highest growth in talent demand, and work-experience wise senior professionals with 20+ work experience registered the highest growth too. Co-relating these facts, we can conclude that most businesses are gearing up for the impending festive season and organisations are looking to strengthen their leadership teams. This, and other factors, have pushed senior-level hiring at India Inc.”
