Robust hiring market for accounting and finance experts


Start-ups in Vietnam will be looking to hire candidates with finance and accounting experience in 2017.

At the same time, established businesses will be undergoing transformation, restructuring or launching new projects. This will result in demand for professionals with strong entrepreneurial mindsets and the skills to lead new projects.

This is according to our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that candidates with overseas work experience will expect high salaries in 2017.

However, many employers will be unable to offer such rises and hiring managers in new industries, such as e-commerce and technology, may find it challenging to persuade professionals to move out of familiar and traditional industries.

We believe that the hiring market for accounting and finance will remain robust in 2017 and overall salary levels could rise by 20 - 30% for professionals moving to a new role.
