Headhunting Outlook in Malaysia

For over 20 years Monroe Consulting Malaysia has been at the forefront of executive headhunting. We are experts finding experts – embedded in the talent market and up to date with the latest trends.

The fourth largest economy in Asia has struggled in the early 2020’s, with a shrinking pool of top talent who have an increasingly wider range of career opportunities to choose from within the region.

Malaysia’s technology sector is a driving force behind the need for comprehensive executive headhunting programs. The rollout of the long-awaited 5G network and digital infrastructure, along with the approval of banking licenses by the Ministry of Finance is expected to fuel growth in tech hiring. For organisations operating in the space, the ability to headhunt experienced executives with the right skill sets drive their growth ambitions will be critical.

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 Malaysia as its recovery picks up pace.

There is plenty to be optimistic about regarding the future of Malaysia and the economy, and at Monroe Consulting Malaysia we are committed to helping our clients be part of that success through finding exceptional talent to lead them there.
