Jio, Vodafone Idea, and Airtel Set to Expand Workforce by 25% in FY24

In the upcoming fiscal year, Reliance Jio, Vodafone Idea, and Bharti Airtel are projected to grow their employee count by up to 25%. This surge in hiring is attributed to the increasing adoption of 5G technology within the telecommunications sector. Notably, the industry is witnessing a substantial uptick in recruitment compared to the pandemic period. Throughout FY23, job hires in the telecommunications industry saw a remarkable rise ranging from 40% to 45%. The latter half of the year also experienced a significant growth in job opportunities, ranging from 30% to 36%.

The impetus for this substantial hiring expansion is largely linked to the influence of 5G technology. Alongside the rollout of 5G, recruiters emphasized that the key factors driving demand are emerging domains like network security, whitespace spectrum, virtual network operations, integration of big data with IoT, specialists in cybersecurity, and cloud services. Furthermore, the escalated efforts of businesses towards digitalization have further fuelled the demand for telecommunications services.

As of the conclusion of FY23, Reliance Jio employed 95,326 personnel, while Airtel had a workforce of 64,407, and Vodafone Idea had 15,604 employees. Recently, Reliance Jio Infocomm announced its successful deployment of 5G technology using 26 gigahertz millimetre waves across India. This achievement has enabled speeds of up to 2 gigabits per second. The company highlighted its accomplishment of fulfilling its minimum rollout obligations across all 22 circles and various spectrum bands ahead of schedule, aligned with the spectrum allocation as of August 17, 2022.
