HCM CITY — Job positions for mid-level and senior managers rose by 38 per cent in the second quarter against the first three months of the year, according to job recruiting agency Navigos Search.
Recruitment demands in the manufacturing sector ranked first, followed by consumer goods, and banking–finance–real estate sectors, the agency reported.
Jobs rose in manufacturing as many foreign electronic companies expanded operations in the northern region in the second quarter.
Korean LG Display Co Ltd, for instance, in April was provided an investment licence for a US$1.5 billion project on manufacturing OLED displays for mobiles and tablets in Hải Phòng City. It is expected to open in 2017.
Other projects like the Samsung Research and Development Centre valued at $300 million are being carried out in Hà Nội.
The report also showed that large foreign-invested projects in the thermal power sector under the form of BOT were granted licences. The projects also needed senior managers.
Only a few candidates are eligible for jobs that require 20 years of experience in thermal power, work in Government’s agencies, and excellent command of English.
In the southern region, strong growth has been seen in health care for livestock, poultry and pets.
Many multinational groups have regional head offices in Thailand, but in recent years, they have opened offices in Việt Nam to expand their business in a growing market.
Jobs that are in great need are those related to technical consultancy and sales.
Vietnamese candidates can compete technically with Thai peers, but English remains a disadvantage.
Because many vacant posts could not be filled by Vietnamese candidates, Thai personnel have been sent to Việt Nam to work.
Many Thai employees have studied Vietnamese to ensure good customer service.
In the commercial sector, some big brands in the textile and garment and footwear sectors are looking for Vietnamese personnel for new procurement offices that have opened in the country. Previously, these businesses usually worked through agents.
Some senior and mid-level positions that are now filled by Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean or Hong Kong personnel will be gradually handled by Vietnamese candidates. — VNS
