Flipkart said the direct jobs will be across supply chain — delivery executives, pickers, packers and sorters — while there will be additional indirect jobs at Flipkart’s seller partner locations and kiranas,
said Amitesh Jha, senior vice president, Ekart and Marketplace at Flipkart, said onboarding of more than 50,000 kiranas for the last-mile delivery will create thousands of seasonal jobs to deliver millions of packages.
Flipkart is undertaking training programs for its direct hires in various aspects of the supply chain through a mix of classroom and digital training, enhancing their understanding of supply chain management.
