Mumbai: The retail segment, which has been badly hit due to the lockdown restrictions, is bouncing back gradually with an uptick in hiring of 15 per cent in September when compared with the previous month, according to a report. However, the hiring activities are still down by 50 per cent compared to the corresponding month a year ago, according to a report by Naukri.com.
The sector is showing a slow but steady sequential recovery but the sector is likely to bounce back further during the festive season in the country, it added.
“As more public spaces have opened up keeping social distancing in mind, we see movement pick up in retail spaces. Hiring is also picking up accordingly,” the report added.
The Naukri retail hiring report is based on hiring activities in the sector on the job site’s platform.
Top roles that recruiters are hiring for include retail store manager, sales or business development manager, merchandiser, software developer, tech architect, designer and accountant.
