HCM CITY — Recruitment demand in HCM City has increased after the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday as businesses accelerate production to meet a rise in orders.

Upgain Vietnam Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in Linh Trung 1 Export Processing Zone needs to recruit 500 workers in the garment sector as the company has received new orders since late last year, said a representative of the company.

It offers monthly salary and allowance ranging from VNĐ12 to 14 million (US$487-568), he said.

Nidec Instruments Vietnam at Saigon Hi-Tech Park in Thủ Đức City is offering 1,000 positions that require only a high school diploma.

Việt Tiến Garment Corporation in Tân Bình District is in need to recruit 100 workers to compensate for the 10 per cent turnover rate after Tết holiday.

Lượng Thị Tới, deputy director of the city Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, said many businesses face a shortage of labourers after Tết holiday, particularly in labour-intensive sectors such as garment and textile, footwear, electricity-electronics, and insurance-finance.

The city’s labour market will seek to fill 52,000 jobs, with trade and services sectors accounting for 70 per cent of the total human resources needed, while the industry and construction sectors account for 28 per cent.

Of that figure, businesses in industrial parks and export processing zones offer around 1,000 positions that require a university diploma, 500 positions that require a college diploma or vocational training, and 8,800 manual labour jobs.

Nguyễn Văn Sang, deputy director of the HCM City Centre for Youth Employment Services, said it has nearly 3,000 job openings from businesses in the city for sales, customer service, and financial consultancy positions, along with unskilled jobs in the textile and garment sector. — VNS
