Morgan McKinley Global Trends Reports
Shanghai, 16 July 2013; as a leading global recruitment services provider, Morgan McKinley today launches the first in a series of Global Trend Reports providing market intelligence to professional career movers and managers.
Morgan McKinley conducted international research with its consultants in up to nine markets to identify business talent requirements and provide career focused advice across: Risk & Compliance, Finance & Accounting and Technology.
The reports span three months of qualitative research, gathering anecdotal evidence and feedback from conversations with industry and provide a realistic snapshot of these markets. The reports capture the mood of each sector, what career movers can expect, where recruitment is focused and key growth drivers.
Richie Holliday, Chief Operations Officer, Morgan McKinley Asia Pacific commented:
“These reports offer up-to-date insight into hiring trends in three sectors within key locations in Asia. Across these geographies macroeconomic issues as well as cultural differences continue to impact on business activity and potential for growth. To compile these reports, we have spent time with job seekers and employers in each of these regions to really understand the challenges and opportunities for career development across finance; technology and risk & compliance in each market.
“Despite some significant and obvious differences, it’s interesting to see some broad trends across the sectors and the countries: hiring of multilingual professionals and strong local knowledge is one common theme. Also, regulatory changes and compliance requirements are impacting skills sets required. Breadth of knowledge coupled with relevant technical skills are key across the board as employers cautiously look to introduce professionals with a range of experience to build out their teams.”
Morgan McKinley’s three Global Trend Reports for Finance, Technology and Risk & Compliance span H1 2013 and include insight from Australia, China, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, Singapore and the UK.
