Avtar, the Chennai-based diversity hiring company, has launched a job portal that will cater exclusively to women, members of the the LGBTQ community, persons with disabilities (PwD) and veterans from the army. It will try to ensure that not just women but even army veterans can fulfil their desire for a second career.
The portal, which is called Avtar.com, aims to help by offering employment opportunities to those members of the society, who are underrepresented when it comes to jobs in organisations.
In the past two decades now, Avtar has managed to successfully help over 50,000 women get jobs across India.
With over 500 part-time, flexible as well as project-based opportunities on offer right now, from about 400 employers, all interested candidates need to do is, register and upload their resume to apply for a suitable job. Employers — small, medium as well as large enterprises — on the other hand, can choose from various subscription models to benefit from the talent pool. These employment opportunities exist in the fields of IT, manufacturing, fintech, healthcare, logistics as well as sales & marketing.
It is reported that about 78 lakh Indian women are desirous of returning to work and begin their second career. Also, there are more than four lakh people belonging to the LGTQ community across the country and about 2.68 crore PwD who can benefit from the portal.
About 25,000 candidates have already registered.
