Executive Search Vietnam Testimonials
I am impressed with the communication, follow up, responses, as well as information shared. The team submitted a comprehensive report about their search, including all the positive, negative information/feedback from candidates so that we know where we are in the labour market. This is important to not only us, but for any recruiter to define the right package/strategy to attract talents, who nowadays is the most asset of a corporation. I would continue working with Monroe to build up our workforce.

Executive Recruitment Outlook in Vietnam
Overall growth in the Vietnam economy means a steady demand of executive talent will be required in the foreseeable future. A talent scarcity has developed, with many candidates juggling multiple offers. Companies must table competitive salary and benefits packages if they want to attract top talent.
Increased trade thanks to the re-opening of the travel and tourism sector and the postponed 2021 South East Asia (SEA) Games, which were held in May 2022, have helped stimulate the Vietnamese economy. The blend of traditional and modern retail will further accelerate economic growth, which bodes well for future growth.
The government has been investing heavily in digital skills with training at the forefront of its priorities to remain competitive on the international stage. A report by the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) valued the country’s digital economy at $53bn (Q1 2022). Training is helping combat the talent supply issue – coding bootcamps have grown in popularity and number in Vietnam. Experienced executive talent will be required to drive and manage this growth.
Ever since ‘Flappy Bird’, an instant overnight sensation back in 2013, Vietnam is considered to be Asia’s gaming hub. Companies such as Sky Mavis, which developed Axie Infinity, a blockchain based online video game that uses Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), continue to forge their reputation as employers of choice for coders and designers.
Telecoms is another key sector with testing expertise required for 5G and 6G devices. The government is raising standards in telecoms training by introducing university courses to ensure that it can develop a strong pipeline of local talent. The ongoing need for telecoms expertise is set to continue, creating more opportunities for rewarding careers in the sector.
