Job opportunities in China at lowest level since 2010
Employers in China are decreasing their expected hiring, shows a recent report by the recruitment firm Hudson. They estimate an index, measured through interviews with employers, that tracks the expected hiring / job opportunities in China for the next quarter.
The property and construction sector is seen as the industry with the most opportunity, with strong growth in hiring. This is due to the continued strength of commercial and retail property, with a strong domestic demand unaffected by overseas economic difficulties or tightening regulations for overseas capital in China.
The hiring and job situation is quite mixed amongst the different sectors of the market. The Hudson report identifies stronger hiring intentions for highly qualified and specialized workers, in particular those in research and development, chemicals, healthcare, laboratory roles, and digital marketing.
Healthcare, too, has strong potential. 71.2% of respondents in this sector indicated increased hiring intentions for the next quarter. Bi explained that this is due to the upcoming plans of a number of global pharmaceutical companies currently establishing research and development centers in China increasing their demand for employees.
