Bosses in India are aggressively hiring senior professionals, according to new data from TimesJobs.

According to RecruiteX, the TimesJobs recruitment index, demand for professionals with over 20 years of experience soared by nearly 14% last month.

In addition, demand for staff with 10-15 years of experiences also revived in June 2015, registering a 5% jump.

“We are seeing a start-up wave of entrepreneurial spirit gripping the country today,” said Vivek Madhukar, COO,

“From the point of view of business sustenance and expansion this youthful passion, exuberance, and innovation needs to be balanced with a strong focus on common sense, street smarts and market realities.”

He added that the need for this balance has led to a demand at the top level for senior profiles with niche skills. Roles at CXO positions will also be in great demand this year, he explained.

Demand for middle-level professionals also reported a 3% rise while demand for entry/junior-level professionals grew by 2% in June 2015.

Need for professionals in the IT/telecom and construction sector rose by 3% in June 2015 even as overall hiring sentiments flattened across most key sectors.

Overall hiring activity in fact, witnessed a 2% drop last month.

“Among locations, metros reported significant hiring barring Delhi NCR, which reported 3% drop during the month. Vadodara topped the list of top ten locations with 14 per cent rise in talent demand in month-over-month analysis,” the report stated.
