The edtech sector in India is undergoing a series of layoffs especially in the large companies including Byjus’s and all its acquired companies.
However, there is one company which is trying to benefit from this scenario. UTKARSH Classes and Edutech, is planning to add more people to its already 1200 plus team, including senior educators and other functions.
The company claims in an official communique that it is planning to hire 500 professionals which includes senior leadership positions, educators, the newly formed sales and customer services team in the organisation.
More importantly, the company plans to provide employment opportunities to people in tier one and two cities.
As per the company, the hiring strategy majorly focuses on targeting Hindi speaking states such as Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh.
“We are expanding our team across Tier 2 & Tier 3 cities. We are looking to hire out-of-the-box thinkers with a passion for educational excellence and problem-solving, thus helping our young learners advance in their careers and succeed in life,” shares Nirmal Gehlot, founder & CEO, UTKARSH Classes and Edutech.
The company claims to have robust processes for creating a talent pipeline right from the start of the onboarding process. It aims to give great careers to people in the Edtech sector and ensure that every employee is clear about their individual goals and key responsibilities, which further help the employees to understand their role in the big picture.
UTKARSH provides online and offline learning modes for central and state government exams, all-India competitive exams such as IIT-JEE, NEET, and CLAT, and school education for Classes 6th to 12th, CBSE, and eight state boards.
