About the Salary Survey

Now in its nineteenth edition, the Robert Walters annual Salary Survey is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world.

The Greater China & South East Asia book consists of 9 countries, is free, and covers China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Our Salary Survey is based on the analysis of permanent, interim and contract placements made across each of our geographies and recruitment disciplines during 2017.

Hiring trends – Vietnam 

New market entrants, specifically within the manufacturing and engineering sectors are set to boost demand for engineering and manufacturing professionals in 2018. Growth in the local retail sector is also expected, due to an increase in the number of shopping malls and real estate projects. Additionally, in response to increasingly complex regulatory requirements, the financial services industries are set to open up new roles for internal control and auditing functions. 

As demand for technical and specialist skill sets rises, we anticipate hiring processes across industries will become more stringent as more organisations seek to hire for culture-fit and for a long-term basis. To overcome the talent shortage, firms are likely to look for Vietnamese candidates based overseas. In light of this, our ‘Come Home Phở Good’ campaign remains more relevant than ever in helping clients hire overseas-based Vietnamese who are looking to return home.
