In 2020, digitalisation continued to accelerate in Vietnam with companies starting to leverage tech and data to drive business. Shifts in consumer behavior continued to fuel mobile usage, and e-commerce and consumer-facing businesses were constantly refining their online and mobile strategies to remain competitive. This drove the need for talented developers and UI/UX designers.
Outside of technology and digital, manufacturing also saw strong growth. This was in part due to global events such as the US–China trade war, as well as greater external confidence in Vietnam. This, in turn, spurred demand for professionals across the entire value chain, from planning and procurement, to production, export and sales and marketing. In particular, senior-level professionals with a manufacturing background and commercial skill sets to help businesses create forward-thinking strategies were in high demand but short supply.
“In 2020, we expect to see companies continue to adopt a more data-centric approach, resulting in increasing demand for professionals to fill roles related to data science and analytics, business intelligence, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). In 2020, job movers can expect an average increment of 15-25%. Companies looking to hire talent with niche skill sets, particularly for tech or digital roles, should consider tapping into talent pools outside the country," said Adrien Bizouard, country manager of Robert Walters Vietnam.
