The New Challenges of Recruiting Regionally Across SE Asia

Posted over 5 years ago by

New Challenge

The growing trend across the SE Asian economies to focus on employing talent from their local pool by tightening up on issuing work permits is causing multinational employers to re-evaluate their hiring strategies. More employers operating in countries across the region are looking to specialist recruitment consultancies who have a physical operational presence within those countries to satisfy their hiring needs rather than relying on traditional remote recruiting from the hubs of Singapore and Hong Kong.

Using the services of specialist recruiters who already have their feet on the ground in the country and an understanding of the local employment markets, culture and business practice, can provide better quality candidates and greatly reduce time to hire.

With JAC Recruitment’s coverage across Asia, we have strategically built a network of branches in key cities to focus on these changing hiring trends to better service our clients across the region by positioning ourselves close to the local talent pools. Having three local offices within each Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia and two in Vietnam in addition to our operations in Singapore, India, Korea, Hong Kong and China, our aim is to provide the local experience to those looking to recruit across the region.
