About the Salary Survey

Now in its nineteenth edition, the Robert Walters annual Salary Survey is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world. 

The Greater China & South East Asia book consisting of 9 countries, is free, and covers China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Our Salary Survey is based on the analysis of permanent, interim and contract placements made across each of our geographies and recruitment disciplines during 2017.

Hiring trends – Malaysia

The continual expansion of several industries, such as shared services, is set to lead to an active job market in Malaysia in 2018. Demand for experts in finance and accounting, IT, and supply chain and procurement is likely to be high. Employers are also expected to seek high-potential professionals with expertise in credit risk and regulatory reporting due to the likelihood of tighter regulations from the Central Bank of Malaysia.

Due to a shortage of candidates with in-demand skills in sectors such as IT, companies will make every effort to keep their best people. Hence, employers should consider paying top talent a premium, and also be prepared to offer structured career development plans and training opportunities to attract and engage their employees.
