Philippines Recruitment Market Update

It's an exciting time and period of growth for The Philippines. President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is keen to carry forward the momentum enjoyed under Rodrigo Duterte's government. International trade will be an important focal point, especially the reinforcing of ties with the US and other global partners to drive consumption and growth.

In much the same way as Indonesia's tworungs', tech companies are adapting to consumer buying habits and are trying to make inroads into the 'sari sari' store market in The Philippines. This will help small business owners and promote entrepreneurship in the country. Smaller FMCG brands are also penetrating modern trade channels. Companies in The Philippines are recruiting broadly for a range of different functions, including sales, finance and marketing. The hospitality sector is also starting to create jobs once again.

Digital transformation and innovation programmes are accelerating at a fast pace in The Philippines, which has led to sustained hiring of IT professionals. There has also been a rise in the demand for data roles across a range of sectors, including Fintech, e-commerce, HealthTech, EdTech and Telco. Demand exists both for older legacy tools as well as newer frameworks and languages in software development.

Many local and foreign companies are ramping up their permanent tech recruiting in 2022 as the economy of the Philippines becomes more reliant on digital channels, services and online transactions. This is driving a requirement for flexible RPO and payroll solutions.

Organisations need to move fast and enhance their salary and benefits packages if they want to snap up top tech talent. Speeding up their recruitment processes is also seen as a key talent attraction differentiator. Many organisations are partnering with specialist recruiters who can carry out technical skills assessments for job applicants.
