As an expected outcome of the pandemic-induced digitisation, job posting for IT roles such as project head and engineer saw an increase of 8-16 per cent. Similarly, the easing of lockdown restrictions and reopening of spaces sharpened the focus on hygiene and sanitisation. Indeed’s data reflected a 60 per cent rise in demand for housekeepers, caretakers, housekeeping managers, custodians, executive housekeepers, and cleaners between July 2020 and July 2021.

The number of job roles in the food and retail sector witnessed an increase of 52 per cent and 39 per cent respectively in the same period while the demand for HR and finance roles grew by 27 per cent each.

In addition, the report pointed out that with people confined to their homes, the need for physical and mental well-being has gained prominence. Almost 89 per cent increase was seen in clicks applying for therapy jobs while veterinary jobs saw 216 per cent rise and personal care, childcare and dental jobs saw 155 per cent, 115 per cent and 108 per cent rise respectively.

Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales, Indeed India said, “While the relevance of tech jobs continues to be high, the renewed demand for retail and food jobs indicates that the consumption economy will play an important role in driving job growth further. Meanwhile, hygiene clearly has become a priority for both employers and job seekers.”
