China Recruitment 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.​

    Alex Zhang

  • ​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.

    Lucy Morris

  • 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.​

China Recruitment Market Update

​Figures from China's National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) revealed that industrial production increased by 3.9% year on year in June 2022, a big jump from the 0.7% gain in May (to be noted that it had fallen in April by 2.9%) - marking a second consecutive month of growth. Indeed, industrial output was up by 3.4% for the first half of 2022 compared to 2021.

Manufacturing production grew by 3.4% (compared to 0.1% in May) with mining at 8.7% (vs. 7%). Drilling down further into manufacturing output, sectors that grew included chemical raw material and chemical products as well as electricity and heat production and supply industries. Food processing and textiles did not fare so well. There was also a surge in the demand for new energy vehicles, such as hybrid and battery-powered cars despite a slump in the overall car market, which is the largest in the world.

The importance of the tech sector to China, which is expected to overtake the US as the world’s biggest economy by 2030, cannot be understated. Enhancing the sophistication of digital services and developing its fledgling big data industry remains a central pillar of the country’s 14th and latest Five-Year Plan (FYP). The government is investing resources into education and the university systems to nurture homegrown talent and stave off a ‘brain drain’.

There is also demand for product managers, business systems analysts, and UX and CX designers. Companies are vying for the attention not only of Millennials and 'Zoomers' but also the lucrative high disposable income silver generation. Buyer insights and behaviours are vitally important, which is driving a need for data skills.
