Paul Cooper, Managing Director of Michael Page Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam notes, “Malaysia’s B2C marketing is really driving demand for these professionals as companies seek to connect directly with their customers. The leading players want a direct connection to their customers and reduce their reliance on third-party e-commerce platforms. “
This has created a demand for digital marketing, data analysts and product managers who can ensure customer loyalty through relevant influencers and open new online marketplaces for brands.
Similarly, employment opportunities for Malaysian engineering & manufacturing professionals have seen healthy growth (up 22%) since 2020 and pressured to maximize their performance, which in turn has created a demand for semiconductor manufacturing specialists, “commented Paul Cooper.
Another factor is investments in the healthcare industry, which has ramped up manufacturing within pharmaceuticals and medical devices. This was a strong industry for Malaysia before the pandemic and is currently set to grow even more, creating more jobs.
The story goes on
As the number of jobs increases, current employment needs in the Malaysian market are being challenged by a limited talent pool and shortage of skilled workers. This has increased the opportunities for specialized contractors as a viable solution for companies to manage their talent workflow. A growing number of companies are using Malaysia’s growing contracting workforce to stay agile, keep their existing ones updated and fill any skill gaps.
