Highly qualified personnel are forecast to be continually headhunted in the third quarter of this year following last quarter’s feverish recruitment activities, according to human resource service firm Adecco Vietnam.

Due to the China-US trade war, many multinational companies are seeking ways to expand their business and develop production chains in Vietnam to replace their manufacturing facilities in China, resulting in the rising demand for personnel.

Meanwhile, fin-tech companies and start-ups are thriving, increasing the need for talent in sales, marketing, operations and trade services, said Le Nguyen Ngoc Thanh, director of Adecco Vietnam’s HCM City Office in a press release.

Adecco predicted that the local manpower sector will witness active recruitment this quarter. Multinational corporations will need candidates for technical posts and other employees in the manufacturing industry.

In addition, finding candidates with experience in the fields of business intelligence and data engineering will be the top priority of fin-tech companies. However, foreign firms will also make sizeable investments in high-potential employees who are young and have no work experience, aiming to develop talent that match their businesses’ culture.

According to Nguyen Thu Ha, director of Adecco’s Hanoi Office, recruitment demand typically surges in the second quarter, especially after the Tet holiday, by at least 20 percent, as recorded at the Hanoi office, with the highest number of jobs posted in the fields of banking, information technology and financial technology.

Ha added that employees holding managerial posts in human resources, accounting, operations and sales departments remain the most wanted candidates on the local job market as companies want to hire employees with deep insight into the local market to help them gain a firm foothold in Vietnam.
