Mainland China hiring trends in 2019

Mainland China maintained robust economic growth momentum in 2018, with the recruitment market continuing to mature. Meanwhile, the continued digital transformation across industries has driven strong hiring of talent in areas such as smart manufacturing, life sciences, digital marketing, and human resources. The market is expected to focus on high-quality and steady growth in 2019.

Digital transformation gathered further pace and businesses are eager to leverage new technologies in order to upgrade their products and expand profit margins. The supportive regulatory environment and massive consumer demand for digital technologies has driven strong hiring of talent in areas such as e-commerce, fintech, artificial intelligence (AI), cyber security, big data and virtual reality. Candidates with experience in these cutting-edge emerging technologies will be highly sought after.

With the continued outward investment and internationalisation of Chinese companies, bilingual professionals with an international background will be highly sought after and they are able to receive a premium when changing jobs.
