The Market.

Capitalising on the rapid growth of South East Asian economies
1

Vietnam on top

With an economy growing at close to 7%, it is the fastest growing economy in South East Asia, with some medium cities experiencing a double-digit growth and increasing foreign investments. With a population of 90 million, expansion opportunities abound, and the growing young middle class, coupled with a tech-savvy population, will lead to the emergence of new business models. 

Other SE Asian economies such as Indonesia, India and the Philippines will also have highly valuable opportunities for expansion.

2

Service Sector recruitment

There are potentially 30 million service sector recruiters among micro and small-medium businesses in the region, with at least 5-10% of the population classified as frequent mobile app users.

3

General Skills Sectors

The hospitality and retail sector are some of the sectors that could benefit the most from a growing economy, also thanks to increasing tourism figures. 

Restaurants, hotels, shops, cafés, students part-time positions, finance internships, nurses are all areas where high-turnover is present. These small business cannot invest much in premium recruitment and are also in constant need of new staff during expansion periods.

4

Competition

The online recruitment market is South East is dominated by traditional generalised job boards, while some new local job apps have entered the market.

Recruitment apps have been popular and well-funded in the US and internationally.
