Banking and Financial Services

1.    Overview

With the restoration of political stability and the positive outlook surrounding the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), this should have positive impact on the market. The priority for business will then be to hire professionals with international experience who can manage increasingly complex projects and act as trusted business partners.   

Skilled finance professionals who are fluent in English are currently in short supply and high demand. Qualified financial professionals have been the top recruitment priority, especially certified public accountants (CPAs), with overseas experience and business acumen.

The demand across compliance and accounting, specific skill requirements and candidate shortage areas are likely to include ERP Implementation and project management in  IT and digital markieng as well as compensation and benefits within HR.
