Middle management roles like senior manager, general manager and assistant vice president were offered besides the regular roles of manager, project manager, consultant and analyst,” he added.

“Many of the companies had roles based in India yet their scope was global in nature and people were hired as part of global teams deployed in India. The major recruiters included Trident, Accenture, HSBC, Genpact, TCS, Infosys, Hero Fincorp and Udaan to name a few.
