Why come home

As a key emerging economy, many multinational organisations are establishing a presence in Vietnam. This brings with it increasing opportunities which has resulted in a high demand for local talent. Vietnamese professionals with international experience will have the opportunity to accelerate their career with rapidly-expanding local and foreign companies that are consistently on the lookout for top talent. Therefore, there has never been a better time to come home.

Skill shortages

With such high levels of demand, the Vietnamese talent pool is showing signs of becoming stretched. Skilled professionals in finance, HR, compliance, sales, marketing, manufacturing, sourcing and IT are highly sought after.

Who is in demand in the Vietnam market?

Returning Vietnamese professionals with technical capabilities combined with international experience in established overseas markets will have an added advantage. Job prospects will vary depending on industry – we expect to see a rising demand for cloud computing, mobility engineering, big data, business intelligence and information security IT specialists, as well as sales and marketing professionals within the industrial and pharmaceutical sectors. Equally, experienced professionals in sourcing, quality assurance and supply chain management are highly sought after.

Thinking of coming home?

If you’re an overseas Vietnamese professional thinking of returning home, we can help. In Vietnam, Robert Walters specialises in the permanent specialist recruitment of mid-to-senior level roles across a variety of industries including accounting & finance, engineering, HR, IT, sales & marketing, supply chain, procurement & logistics and healthcare.
