Executive Search China Testimonials
We are a world-renowned legacy 4A advertising agency and have begun our phase of transforming ourselves to better meet the evolving needs of consumer communications. Monroe was able to listen to our feedback following every candidate interview and developed an iterative process that sourced better talent each and every time. I especially enjoy working with Monroe because the dedicated consultants take their time to learn not only the candidates themselves, but also the evolving landscape of our industry to help us stay competitive. In a very competitive market, Monroe was also able to help me understand the needs of the candidates in order to develop a better cultural fit within my teams. I would not hesitate to recommend Monroe China and look forward to working with them in future endeavours.
Our company selected Monroe Consulting to work exclusively for the recruitment of a Sales Director for our China operation. From our first face to face meeting and subsequent phone calls and emails I have found Monroe Consulting to be extremely professional and thorough. The recruitment process was well planned and communicated, but still retained the flexibility and adaptability we needed when our recruitment plans changed from one hire to two. The transparency and level of honesty was apparent throughout the process. We would not hesitate to appoint Monroe Consulting China again for out future recruitment needs.
I found my current position with Monroe’s help; the effort put in for the pre-alignment to ensure that both parties found the right match is the very reason I keep choosing Monroe to be my trusted partner when I need to search for my direct report. In our company, we value the culture fit as much as the skill set requirement, and I believe only through a quality screening and a deep understanding of the company can anyone achieve this difficult task. Monroe China did it, and I’m counting on them to keep delivering the excellent job.

Executive Recruitment Outlook in China
The outlook for executives remains strong in China, mainly driven by manufacturing and digital sectors.
China's manufacturing sector accounted for 28.8% of the country's GDP in the first half of 2022. This sector has a demand for talent amid shortages for highly skilled workers, with R&D, engineering and project management key sectors and roles that need filling.
Employers are specifically looking for digital and ecommerce specialists - live broadcasting and video content is a noticeable area of growth. R&D expertise for improving product quality is also a key requirement as is knowledge of growth marketing, a new and emerging specialism that helps organisations understand market trends.
While gaming and e-commerce remain key sectors, there is now a big expansion in rapidly emerging technology industries and skills in AI (for example in intelligent manufacturing, which uses AI and machine learning in the manufacturing process), cloud computing, biotech and digital infrastructure. Metaverse job vacancies rose significantly year on year.
With an economy that continues to digitalise and advance its innovation strategy, China will increasingly rely on skilled workers and experienced executives across a range of disciplines including AI, deep learning, cloud storage, enterprise network security and data protection. Executives with the right skills can take advantage of the opportunities.
