Business consultancy NextG Apex on Friday said it plans to increase its workforce to 5,361 by FY25 to support its expansion into several verticals, including FMCG and healthcare.

Currently, NextG Apex has 543 employees, which it aims to increase to 902 by the end of FY23 and 5,361 by 2024-25, the company said in a statement.

This recruitment is largely in line with the company’s plans to expand its business operations across verticals such as FMCG, health, beauty and food and dining over the next 2-3 years.

The recruitment will be mainly in cities that account for more than 80 percent of the business and going forward 40-50 percent of the recruitment will shift to tier II and III cities.

“Our recruitment plans are mainly focused on field operations, so 70 per cent of the total recruitment will be added to our fleet on the road. Another 20 per cent is required for mid-level supervisors and 5 per cent for management skills. 3 per cent for back-end positions and senior management 2 per cent for positions,” said Amarnath Halember, managing director and CEO of NextG Apex India.

As most of the hiring will be done at the field force level, the company said, 50 percent of NextG Apex’s hiring will be for those with relevant industry experience, 25 percent will be across industry with category understanding, and product lines with similar experience, and the remaining 25 percent of positions will be open to freshers. will be
