Manufacturing has continued to lead recruitment demand in Vietnam, according to Navigos Search.

In the second quarter of this year, recruitment demand in the senior and mid-levels in the sector dominated, with 40 per cent of all recruitment demand, Navigos’s report on recruitment demand for senior and mid-level managers, based on recruitment requests from its clients, reveals.

Manufacturing, Industrial Construction, Building Construction, and Electricity/Electronics held the largest proportions.

Consumer Goods/Retail, especially the Apparel/Accessories and Food/Beverage categories, followed, with 17 per cent of demand.

The IT industry held 14 per cent, concentrated on Internet Service categories for companies using technology in transport and real estate, e-payment gateways, and game developers.

Following were Banking - Finance - Insurance, Professional Services (Advertising, Education and others), Healthcare, Hospitality/Travel, and Transport.

Data Technology, meanwhile, will be the fast-growing industry over the next three years, according to Navigos Search.

In particular, FinTech companies, which provide financial services based on technology platforms, have high recruitment demand for IT engineers with experience in the data field and financial knowledge. Such candidates are in short supply in Vietnam, however, and these companies must therefore recruit foreign engineers. To meet recruitment demands, FinTech companies have also accepted recruiting fresh graduates and provide their own training.

A technology expert told Navigos Search that Data Technology would be the fastest-growing industry over the next three years. Companies in the industry have high recruitment demand for IT engineers in Data Processing and IT engineers with experience in machine learning, part of the artificial intelligence field and related to technical research and development that allows automated learning from database sources for problem solving.

Vietnam has few professional training universities in this field. Companies providing online products and services therefore have high recruitment demand on such positions but suitable candidates are limited in number.

The report was released by Navigos Search, the leading provider of executive search services in Vietnam and a member of Navigos Group, in Ho Chi Minh City on July 12 and includes highlights on recruitment trends.

Navigos Search, the market leader in providing senior and mid-level management recruitment services, and VietnamWorks, Vietnam’s largest and oldest online recruitment portal, both belong to Navigos Group Vietnam.

Navigos Group has just celebrated its 15th anniversary in the country.
