Mumbai :, one of India’s premier e-learning platforms, has announced aggressive hiring plans for tier 2 & tier 3 cities by the end of FY22-23.
The company plans to recruit 500 people including senior leadership, educators, and people for their new sales and customer service team. The development is a part of its strategy which begins by providing quality and affordable education to young learners, preparing them for various competitive exams and school education courses, and finally creating potential job opportunities.
Utkarsh is aggressively focussed on hiring from Hindi-speaking states including Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh, and generating employment opportunities in smaller towns and cities.
While the learning educational app was launched in November 2018, Utkarsh Classes is a pioneer in the industry, founded by Dr. Nirmal Gehlot in 2002. Built on a sustainable growth model, UTKARSH is a bootstrapped yet profitable organization that maintains its competitive edge by adopting innovative solutions and a technology-driven approach. It currently has over 1,200 employees, including 170 educators across categories and over 20 million students across its online and offline platforms, learning app, and YouTube channel.
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. It also specializes in all-India and state-level government tests for IAS, banking, defense services, state Public Service Commission, and teaching exams.
UTKARSH Classes and Edutech, Founder and CEO, Dr. Nirmal Gehlot said, “Amid the disruption and uncertainty cast by the Covid-19 pandemic, a majority of young Indians now prefer government jobs for employment security and higher income. As a result, we have witnessed growth from 6000 to 1.5 million paid students enrolling for online coaching in the past two years. Given this, 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.”
Utkarsh has processes to strengthen the talent pipeline right from the initial phase of onboarding and induction of employees to prepare them for the EdTech sector. In addition, the company ensures that its workforce is continually engaged and motivated, from recognition mechanisms to regular updates on key initiatives and milestones, so that each employee understands how they fit into the ‘big picture.’
