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.
