Mid-management Job Roles Lead Amidst Rising Demand For Remote Work: Report

Mid-management Job roles across various sectors like finance, accounting, social media, supply chain, and customer care are currently in high demand, said Indeed, the global matching and hiring platform, in its list of the Best Jobs for 2024 in India.

This year’s list includes a mix of roles in sectors such as technology, marketing and social media, finance as well as therapy. Indeed has compiled this list of best jobs based on availability (share of job postings), salary, opportunity growth (per cent change YoY), and the number of postings offering remote or hybrid working arrangements based on data from its platform.

Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales, Indeed India said, “Within the past year, we’ve witnessed unprecedented technological advancements and economic conditions that have left a lasting impact on the jobs market. Our data shows that there seems to be a cautious approach to hiring for tech jobs, indicating that other areas such as finance, operations, digital marketing and accounting are sunrise sectors for jobseekers to explore.”

Indeed’s Best Jobs in India for 2024 includes only five jobs in the technology sector, which is a significant decline from the previous year’s 15 tech jobs in the list. However, this decline doesn’t suggest that tech jobs are disappearing; they are undergoing a transformation and experiencing a period of change due to the high exposure to new technologies.

The inclusion of social media manager, digital marketer, and therapist roles in the list of top 20 jobs reflects the changing work landscape, which could be becoming less dominated by hardcore tech roles.

Indeed’s list of best jobs has been calculated based on job postings, mean salary, year-on-year job growth as well as a percentage of jobs containing remote in its description on Indeed’s platform between January 2021 and January 2024. The percentage depicted shows the percentage change in jobs share per 1 million jobs.
