Robert Walters Global Salary Survey


Rising business confidence to generate demand for talent

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.

Here we discuss the outlook for Thailand in 2017.


Hiring trends in Thailand

In 2017, hiring managers will continue to search for candidates with bilingual skills, regional experience, global exposure and specialist skills. Companies will also be investing in recruiting more junior talent due to budget constraints. 

With business confidence expected to be positive across multiple industries, we anticipate there will be demand for finance project managers, digital marketers, Microsoft AX specialists, demand planning and anti-money laundering professionals.

Across industries, job movers in back office roles can expect salary increments of 10 - 20%. Candidates with strong product and market knowledge in front office positions such as sales and marketing can expect salary increases of 20 - 25%.
