Though it recruited an additional 3,400 employees last year, VP Bank's monthly average salary still rose by VND3.3 million to VND18.3 million, thanks to the bank's profits of VND2.395 trillion last year.
The average salaries at BIDV, Vietinbank, VIB and MB also remained high between VND17million and VND 19 million per month.

During the year, employees at Sacombank saw their wages fall by VND1.3 million to touch VND13 million due to the bank's merger with the ailing Southern Bank.
A report recently released by Navigos Search showed finance and banking topped the list of 10 industries that offered the highest salaries to mid-level and senior managers in 2015. Though the finance and banking industry had been facing a slew of challenges, it gave monthly wages of VND100 million to VND200 million to mid-level and senior employees in northern Viet Nam last year, followed by the manufacturing and real estate sectors.
Navigos Search also said finance banking would be also one of the four industries that would have the strongest recruitment demand this year.
A survey, conducted by the State Bank of Viet Nam's (SBV) Department of Monetary Forecast and Statistics in Q4/2015, also shows that thanks to last year's growth, the labour demand of banks is also expected to increase this year.
According to the SBV survey, 64.2 per cent of the institutions said they would recruit more people in 2016, with 50 per cent saying the recruitment would be made right in the first quarter to allow them to seize new opportunities. — VNS
