Blue and grey collar job vacancies see 4X jump in the last year and trend to continue: Billion Careers Report

· The number of job seekers in the blue and grey collar industry have grown by 236% and the number of job vacancies have increased by 301% (Nov ’22 vs Nov ’21)

· Hiring of freshers with 0 to 3 years of experience has risen by 60% for blue and grey collar job roles

Mumbai, January 6, 2023:  Billion Careers, the subsidiary of Quess Corp., and a leading digital job platform for blue and grey collar job seekers, has today released data insights reflecting the hiring trends in India. The platform sees over 53 lakh job seekers and more than 1 million job openings annually. 

According to the data from Billion Careers, the number of job vacancies in the blue and grey collar industry increased by 301% in the past year, from 26,26,637 in 2021 to 1,05,42,820 in 2022. This robust demand can be attributed to the dynamic job market influenced by digitization, automation, and changing work models. The data also shows that companies are focusing on skill-based mass hiring to boost productivity and efficiency.

In urban and rural areas, the popularity of candidate discovery platforms rose by 236% over the past year. Metro cities like Delhi (11.57%) and Bengaluru (11.55%) showed the most demand for blue and grey collar jobs, while Tier 1 cities like Mumbai (10.21%), Hyderabad (7.78%), and Pune (5.8%) also saw encouraging hiring trends.

“The job market trends of 2022, ranging from Great Resignation to the emergence of gigs, have shown that every segment will be more focused on hiring, including blue and grey collar workers,” said Ajay Kumar Singh, Sr. VP and Chief Business Officer of Billion Careers (a Quess subsidiary). “Organizations today also prefer hiring employees with tech-related skills, as digitization has penetrated across India. Recruiters will optimize hiring processes through technology and address the demand-supply talent gap, focusing on employee engagement and retention.”

Positive hiring patterns were seen across job profiles such as BPO/Customer Care (up 21%), field sales (up 7%), business development roles (up 19%), admin and human resources (up 31%), and security guard (up 110%), compared to 2021. However, there was a slight decline in demand for job roles in data entry and back office (down 18%), counter sales and retail (down 7%), and delivery and driving (down 25%). Delivery and driver roles saw maximum decline among other job categories. The platform has upskilled more than a million job seekers and candidates, many of whom work as drivers and delivery executives.

Around 60% of blue and grey collar hires were freshers with 0 to 3 years of work experience. Most organizations prefer hiring freshers, who are technologically advanced and efficient. As the Indian economy transitions into a digital age, recruiters are seeking blue and grey collar workers with expertise in analytical and digital skills, such as machine learning, robotics, 3D printing, and artificial intelligence. Data reflects that Legal, IT, Healthcare, Telecom, and Customer Care job profiles provide the highest wages, with the average salary for fresh hires ranging from INR 8,000 to INR 25,000 per month.
