Malaysia Recruitment Market Update
The retail industry is expected to grow 6.3% in 2022, according to a research published by Retail Group Malaysia. This represents a marked rise compared to the contractions experienced in 2020 and 2021 when sales fell by 16.3% and 2.3% respectively. All retail sub-sectors, apart from supermarkets and specialty retail stores, are expected to grow in 2022 and beyond. In terms of in-demand skills, companies are increasingly hiring marketing, e-commerce, retail, sales as well as HR specialists.
Having started the rollout of its long awaited 5G network, Malaysia’s tech and digital infrastructure is undergoing a significant period of change. It is therefore not surprising to discover that companies are on the hunt for a variety of tech skills and expert knowledge. There has been a surge in the demand for developers in Malaysia, with organisations looking for .NET, Angular, Vue.js, Agile and Scrum experience. Big data and data analytics knowledge are also high on the list of desirables, particularly for companies in the healthcare, consumer, and engineering industries.
The approval of digital banking licences to five applicants by the Ministry of Finance is great news for the Fintech sector and for those with AI and machine learning experience. Other desired skills include project management, creative design, user experience as well as blockchain and cybersecurity knowledge (especially for e-payment platforms).
