Snapdeal Is Planning To Hire Employees For Regional Centres

E-commerce firm Snapdeal plans to hire 1,000 employees who know SnapDeal-Logoparticular geographies well  for their regional centres in the next two quarters, in an attempt to help the company stay closer to local sellers.

Each centre will have an M&A, an accounting team and around 500 employees will be hired. VP-HR at Snapdeal, Saurabh Nigam said the hub-and-spoke model will be followed and these employees will get merchants from local markets. Hiring will take place based on centres. Chennai and Hyderabad are the locations in the South, Jaipur and Jalandhar in the North, Surat, Ahmadabad and Pune in the West and Kolkata in the East. These regions have been identified as of now.

Snapdeal has also created recruitment teams for each centre and hiring agencies have also been included in the process for local hiring. Candidates having experience in sales will be the favourites to join the company in days to come. As of now, 300 such employees are already on the board and rest of the vacancies will be filled in next two quarters, as revealed by Nigam.

The company’s current headcount of employees is 5,000 and it’s considered as one of the largest recruiters in engineering and management campuses from the e-commerce industry. Snapdeal, co-founded by Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal, competes strongly with Flipkart and Amazon and holds an envious share in the online shopping industry in India. Snapdeal’s investors include Softbank, eBay, Ratan Tata, PremjiInvest, Myriad Asset Management and so on.
