Couriers have become one of the heroes of the coronavirus year. That is why experts of the Rabota.ru job search service decided to conduct a study and find out which cities of the country have the best offers for couriers.
According to the results of the study, in the period from March 2020 to February 2021, the demand for walking couriers was highest in Moscow (28 per cent of all courier vacancies in the country). St. Petersburg took the second place (10 per cent). About 2 per cent of vacancies are also posted in Nizhny Novgorod, Kazan, and Yekaterinburg.
