Qjobs crosses 2 million users; clocks 10x growth in a year, revolutionizing blue and grey collar hiring


Mumbai, India, 24th January, 2022: Qjobs, a jobs platform revolutionizing blue and grey collar recruitment, has achieved 10x growth amassing 2 million job seekers in a year. Qjobs added the latest 1 million job seekers in a record time of 100 days and more than doubled jobs in Q3 FY22 itself, buoyed by the seasonal festive demand by Enterprises and SMBs.

Qjobs was launched in November 2020 to efficiently address the recruiter and candidate hiring gap by offering verified jobs to job seekers and pre-screened and skilled candidates to recruiters. Key milestones that Qjobs has achieved in just 13 months since its launch include:

  • 2 million job seekers with 1 out of every 3 candidates selected for in-demand jobs
  • 1.4 million upskilling facilitated for job seekers, with top 5 skills in demand being Basic English, General Knowledge, Sales & Customer Care, Data Entry, and Delivery
  • 1 million job vacancies created by 4,000+ companies
  • 2.8 million recruiter-candidate interactions facilitated
  • Consistently high recruiter satisfaction score of 50 creating a new industry benchmark

The largest share of blue and grey collar jobs comes from Delivery, BPO/Customer Care, Data Entry/Back Office, Field Sales, and Driver categories, making 80% of all available jobs. Geographically, Bengaluru houses the largest share of job vacancies across these categories with 23% of openings. Bengaluru is followed by Delhi (18%), Hyderabad (15%), Mumbai (11%), and Pune (8%), making up the top five cities in India for blue & grey collar jobs.

Qjobs started with the vision of enabling the most efficient recruitment process for both recruiters and candidates. Qjobs has just launched a category disrupting AI-assisted recruitment module ‘Fastrack’, which aims to cut the recruitment time by 99% – to 5 minutes from the typical 3 days. Fastrack can pre-screen candidates, conduct video interviews, and release offers to skilled and verified workforce enabling companies to hire at scale. Qjobs plans to eventually make Fastrack available to 4,000+ companies in Q4 FY22.

Speaking on the achievement, Sekhar Garisa, President – Emerging Businesses and Chief Strategy Officer, Quess Corp, said, “We started Qjobs during the pandemic to address the persistent need gap and create a seamless blue and grey collar recruitment journey. Our focus has been on improving recruiter efficiency, and candidate experience and skill level. The milestone of reaching 2 million seekers and 1 million vacancies is significant to us as it shows the trust bestowed upon us by both job seekers and recruiters. We aim to onboard 10 million job seekers by the end of the year and deliver the best candidate match and seamless hiring process to companies.”
