Hiring in India

The world’s second most populous country with over a billion people, India is incredibly diverse with a rich history, dozens of unique cultures and beautiful landscapes ranging from desert to lush jungle. Add in a cuisine that has become iconic around the world and you have an amazing country that’s about way more than Bollywood, cricket and colourful clothing.

India is frequently cited as a ‘future superpower’ as this developing nation makes the slow journey to becoming ‘developed’. There is an emerging middle class with serious purchasing power and the working classes have increasing access to education, social welfare and improved working conditions. The economy is split roughly between the growing services sector and industry and agriculture.

Hiring in India has been extremely popular for Western nations for decades now. With the world’s second largest workforce, many of whom are educated degree-level and speak English, investing in the Indian services sector is common and supported by the Indian government.
