Executive Search Thailand Testimonials

  • ​I have worked with other search firms in Thailand and none of them compare to the thoroughness of search that Monroe has done for us. I have always been confident that they can find the unique skillsets that our company looks for. This confidence has even translated to my comfort in asking them to fill a critical requirement for my site outside of Thailand, which I believe only Monroe can achieve for me.

    Marc Gregorio

  • ​Very professional and efficient recruitment agency. They know what they're doing. And they're doing it great. One of the things that really standout is the way they communicate. They're in contact with candidates regularly to make sure every party is on the same page and everything is going well. This includes constant communication across the whole recruitment journey from pre-screening, interview, new-job day one, and even end of the first month after joined.

Executive Recruitment Outlook in Thailand

Monroe Consulting Group has been operating in Thailand and across the emerging economies in Asia for more than 20 years, and we are committed to providing our clients and candidates key insights on the latest hiring trends in the Thailand job market.

Southeast Asia's second largest economy (after Indonesia) is expected to grow by 3.3% and 4.3% in 2022 and 2023 respectively according to Bank of Thailand figures. From robotics and start-ups to the upgrading of manufacturing plants to make them more environmentally friendly, there is plenty of investment in local industries and infrastructure.

Manufacturing remains an important sector for Thailand's economy. Many of the world's largest automotive manufacturers have established plants in the country. Even though companies in some sectors are not following suit, they are nonetheless setting up commercial offices, which is driving demand for sales and commercial leadership.

With many new start-ups entering the market, the demand for executive talent is on the up in 2022 as permanent hiring starts to return to near pre-pandemic levels. Cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Selenium) are a growth area in Thailand with, companies looking for quality assurance blockchain experts. The partnership between EHang, the Chinese autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) provider and Thailand’s Charoen Pokphand, is a clear intention of Thailand’s desire to become a tech and innovation leader. Covering many different fields, the collaboration will strengthen the country’s tech sector, creating new opportunities in fields such as robotics.

An increased demand in tech talent will also place strain on other industries, as executives with transferable skills may move to similar roles in tech where high growth is expected. Building a strategy for attracting local and international executives will place forward-thinking organisations at the forefront of growth in Thailand.

To improve attraction and retention, many tech companies in Thailand are being more creative with their reward packages, focusing on non-monetary benefits to attract candidates and remain competitive. Of course, with other ASEAN countries also competing for the same executive talent, Thai organisations must coincide their growth plans with executive search partnership to ensure the right talent is secured to lead and deliver growth.
