C&B Managers – Compensation & benefits professionals are in high demand in Hong Kong. This is a very niche HR skill and as companies expand their workforce the skills shortage is leading to a very competitive market.
HR Officers – The high turnover rate fuels constant demand for these professionals. HR Officers are often quick to move into new roles and replacing departing staff is a constant requirement.
L&D Officers/Training Officers – This quarter we will see high demand for junior L&D and training candidates. Organisations are now investing in learning and development as well as organisation development, and so require support to sustain the function.
International Mobility Consultants – Asia is still growing and Hong Kong is a regional hub for the region. As a result companies are moving their talent to Asia from other headquarters, which is fuelling a growing need for International Mobility Consultants.
Stable candidates – Employers prefer candidates with a stable CV, a demonstrated history of loyalty to previous employers, and MNC experience.
Candidates are waiting for their bonus and once awarded they will enter the jobs market. We expect candidates will be very active early in the new calendar year.
We are seeing a large amount of HR demand from the insurance industry. Employers in this industry are looking for talent across compensation & benefits, HR Business Partners and agency development.
