India's IT sector is experiencing a sequential growth in hiring since the lockdown in 2020, witnessing 39 per cent growth in job postings in January compared to the previous month, according to a report.

The IT sector was followed by BPO (10 per cent growth) and banking (6 per cent), according to the report by job site SCIKEY.

Job postings have seen a significant rise in several metro cities, including Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, and Delhi, accounting for more than 50 per cent of jobs in the sector in January 2021, it added.

The report by SCIKEY Market Network has analysed data from over 15,000 job postings across India.

Further, the report revealed that Bengaluru and Hyderabad are the highest paying cities for IT jobs in India for a salary bracket of Rs 25 lakh or more.

Bengaluru also tops the chart for jobs with a salary bracket for less than Rs 6 lakh and between Rs 6-15 lakh, it added.

The report said project managers are highly in demand in the IT sector (47 per cent), followed by construction (6 per cent), banking (4 per cent) and recruitment (3 per cent).

Digital marketing (30 per cent) is also one of the top roles for hiring compared to other industries, it added.

The IT sector has made extraordinary progress in recovering the jobs lost despite the pandemic. IT professionals are playing a critical role in digital transformation and enabling many sectors of the economy to continue to operate through remote work.

"Although some parts of the jobs market are still struggling, IT employment remains in a bright spot. If the growth continues, we will soon see a recovery in all the lost IT jobs," SCIKEY Co-Founder Akshay Sharma added.
