Banking sector has huge recruitment demand
The Saigon Times Daily
HCMC - Although the banking sector is not yet out of the woods, many banks such as HDBank, Sacombank and ACB have been recruiting thousands of employees in recent times, VnExpress reports.
Sacombank has announced to recruit more than 1,000 people while ACB needs 800 new staff. But these figures are nothing compared to HDBank which has announced 1,500 job vacancies in the first recruitment stage of 2017.
It is notable that the majority of job vacancies are for individual and institutional customer care services.
Among 1,000 job vacancies at Sacombank, 600 positions are for individual customer care service, 150 positions for small and medium-size corporate client executives and 20 positions for FDI corporate executives. The situation is the same at HDBank and ACB.
“In order to increase competitiveness, the bank must attract talent, especially those specializing in sales,” said a deputy general manager of a joint stock bank in the south.
Earlier, the banking market also saw massive recruitments in 2016. Typically, BIDV and VietinBank recruited more than 1,000 employees while Lien Viet Post Bank recruited nearly 2,000.
A representative of HDBank said the massive recruitment is for the expansion of the bank’s business in the coming time.
“The recruitment by banks is usually done all year round, but it is most hectic in the first quarter of the year, the beginning of the business season,” he added.
A recent survey by the Statistical Forecasting Department of the State Bank of Vietnam showed that 46.5% of credit institutions plan to add full-time and part-time jobs in the first quarter of this year while none of them intends to cut their staff.
