upGrad, a global online higher education provider, will be hiring 1,000 employees in the next three months in India from more than 100 campuses, including Metros and tier 2 and 3 cities.
The job opportunities are available across departments like learning experience, delivery, marketing and program, along with sales which will remain predominant.
It will also hire people from its own learners’ talent pool through its subsidiary upGrad Rekrut, a leading recruitment and staffing solutions firm.
“Our hiring plan is a result of the growth that we have seen in the last 18 months. We are all set to ramp up our support amd business teams to continue meeting the strong demand for LifeLongLearning that we are experiencing,” said Arjun Mohan, CEO-India, upGrad.
upGrad, which offers more than 100 courses in collaboration with global / local universities like Deakin Business School (Australia), Duke CE (US), Michigan State University (US), Liverpool Business School (UK), IIT Madras (India), IIM Kozhikode (India) and others, has empowered over 10 lakh registered learners over 50 countries across the world.
The fresh sales recruits will work out of the specially-created Temporary Safe Workplace Bubbles across five-star hotel properties in Mumbai and Bengaluru, and will soon expand to cities like Hyderabad, Delhi, and Kolkata. The bubbles have also helped upGrad overcome the monotony of working from home for employees.
The company has announced to close March 2022 at $500 million revenue run rate.
