Robert Walters 2018 Salary Survey - Greater China and Southeast Asia was recently featured on HTV television channel summarising the latest employment trends in Vietnam.

Adrien Bizouard, Country Manager of Robert Walters Vietnam mentioned that rising investment levels and new market entrants led to a buoyant recruitment market in 2017. As demand for technical and specialist skill sets rises, professionals moving jobs are set to receive salary increments of 20%, slightly lower than in 2017.

In predictions for 2018, he highlighted that demand remains high for mid to senior-level managers in e-commerce industry having good English command and excellent business acumen. In addition, candidates proficient in handling multiple HR responsibilities, while displaying a commercial mindset will be sought after. The job market for the supply chain, procurement and logistics industry will be brighter in 2018 as more firms gradually set up and relocate factories to Vietnam.
