    Synopsis

    Bengaluru takes the lead for job openings for driver roles, witnessing 15 per cent of all job postings in the country, according to data by job site Indeed.

    MUMBAI: With food delivery and ecommerce start-ups flourishing in the country, Bangaluru had topped the list for job openings for driver roles, according to a report.

    Bengaluru takes the lead for job openings for driver roles, witnessing 15 per cent of all job postings in the country, according to data by job site Indeed.

    It is followed by Mumbai and New Delhi, which host 10 per cent and 7 per cent of all such jobs, respectively, the data revealed.

    The report is based on job postings data on Indeed platform.

    Data from Indeed, showed that the share of job postings for 'driver' roles has roughly doubled in the past five years (2014 to 2018).

    The share of job searches during this same time period has grown by close to 500 per cent, triggered by demand for drivers from various start-ups that cater to food and product delivery, logistics, and transportation.

    The last year (January 2018 to December 2018) alone has seen a 40 per cent increase in the share of searches (per million) by job seekers for these job roles.

    When it comes to share of postings locally, however, Chandigarh and Mohali have the highest concentration of driver roles, it added.

    "Indian start-ups are flourishing, and creating a host of jobs in their own right. Be it food delivery, last-mile product delivery, logistics or passenger transport, given the nature of the services many of these start-ups provide, they are driving demand for driver roles, and thus adding jobs to the economy," Indeed India managing director Sashi Kumar said.

    It is interesting to see that these roles are not just concentrated around the metros, rather they are seeing job seeker interest from smaller cities as well, he added.

    if this data were including NCR cities and greater Mumbai, the picture might look very different. most NCR drivers happen to come from Uttar Pradesh and that''s where the two of the largest employers (OLA & Uber) have their offices
