Marketing experts set to receive pay raises


With the continued proliferation of the retail and e-commerce sectors, hiring levels for professionals with senior general management and sales and marketing grew in 2016.

This is expected to continue in 2017, according to our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that hiring managers will also be recruiting Vietnamese candidates with international career experience, digital expertise and retail experience for marketing roles.

We also expect that senior marketing leaders with a good command of English will be in demand, especially within the animal feed additives industry.

Overall, salary increments for candidates changing jobs will be 10 - 15%, with the exception of jobseekers in the animal feed additives market, where they can expect to negotiate salary rises of 25%.
