Company Overview:

upGrad Rekrut is a leading recruitment and staffing solutions company that supports organizations in building their human capital. Rekrut India started its journey in August 2020 with a vision to be one of the largest recruitment & staffing companies in India. In January 2021, Rekrut India was acquired by upGrad, one of the largest EdTech companies in Asia offering higher education for working professionals, and was rebranded as upGrad Rekrut.
