NEW DELHI: As foreign and domestic e-retail majors such as Amazon and Flipkart expand their businesses aggressively, hiring activities are expected to grow by over 30 percent in the sector and may help create up to 50,000 jobs in the next 2-3 years.



According to leading human resources consultancy Randstad India, the hiring in this space is likely to rise by 20-30 percent in next few years on the back of entry of domestic online start-ups and e-commerce MNCs into Indian marketplace, as also because of setting up of back-office operations for various global businesses.



Another HR firm Unison International says that hiring has been rather slow in the e-commerce space over last couple of years, but recruitment may grow rapidly now by 33 percent over the previous year as various retail brands are also bringing in their business online.



As per findings of Jigsaw Academy, the e-commerce industry may create 15,000-50,000 jobs in the next three years for data analysts professionals alone.



"The companies are hiring aggressively and are also offering lucrative salaries to attract the right analytics talent," Jigsaw Academy CEO Gaurav Vohra said.
