Malabar Gold & Diamonds, the Indian jewelry retailer, is hiring 5,000 new workers as it expands its network of 260 stores.
Most of the new positions will be at its headquarters in Kozhikode, in the southern state of Kerala.
In April the company, which has an annual turnover of $4.51bn, announced the opening of 40 new shops in India, and another 16 in Singapore, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE.
“The current vacancies are in retail jewellery sales, store operations, and accountants across India. Half of these openings are set aside for deserving female candidates,” the company said.
“This recruitment drive is in line with our vision to become the leading responsible jewellery retail brand in the world in terms of both showroom count and turnover.”
