The Robert Walters Salary Survey for 2018 has said that market growth and a stable economic environment is set to lead to active job market this year. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.
The company says tighter regulations from the Central Bank of Malaysia will continue to increase demand for credit risk and regulatory reporting talent. More companies will be seeking in-house legal counsels; mid-level legal practitioners and licensed company secretaries will also be needed.
Businesses may struggle to hire top IT talent, and there continues to be a high demand for software developers. As a result, quality candidates with niche tech skills are likely to receive multiple offers, in some cases, even after the first interview.
Organisations will also continue to attract overseas Malaysian talent (returning Malaysians) as their international experience is highly valued.
