Demand for engineers set to rise in Vietnam


In 2016, Vietnam continued to establish its reputation as a manufacturing hub, and as a result, there was strong demand for project managers, production managers, industrial engineering mangers, quality managers and plant managers.

With the expansion of the chemical industry in 2017, there will also be a demand for technical managers.

This was based on findings in our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that due to the growth in electronic manufacturing, building & construction and machinery & equipment, hiring managers will be searching for experienced engineers in the semiconductor, high-tech electronic and factory automation sectors, as well as automotive and chemical industries. 

A range of positions will be recruited for from mid to senior management. These professionals will be expected to have strong change management, leadership and project management skills.
