As Malaysia's shared service sector gains momentum with companies expanding or new start-ups emerging, professionals experienced in order management and procurement will be in demand.
There will also be regional positions for logistics and supply chain experts as many organisations establish regional bases in Malaysia instead of Singapore or Hong Kong.
This was among the key findings of our latest Salary Survey 2017.
The report added that job moves in these industries can expect salary rises of at least 15% in 2017.
However, companies will find it challenging to attract talent in 2017. Firms are therefore advised to strengthen their employee retention policies by providing current staff with retention bonuses and progression opportunities into larger or regional roles.
