Recruiters in Asia can’t wait to hire you for these two jobs

Posted by PSR_AXP 10 days ago
Which candidates are particularly sought after by recruiters in Singapore and Hong Kong as we enter the second half of 2022? And are any jobs falling in demand compared with earlier this year?
To find out, eFinancialCareers spoke to six senior recruiters in the two Asian financial hubs during a recent online round table. Here’s what they had to say about their most – and least – in-demand roles.
China-desk relationship managers are in demand, even in Singapore
Nearly all banks are hiring relationship managers – from retail banking to the ultra-high-net-worth segment – but Mandarin-speaking RMs with strong mainland client networks are particularly sought after, and not just in Hong Kong. Recruiters have seen a surge in demand for China-desk RMs in Singapore thanks to an influx of Chinese wealth, including family offices, into the city state. “A market head in private banking in Singapore just told me that he’s interested in hiring RMs from Hong Kong to come to Singapore and serve mainland clients,” said a front-office headhunter, who like his round table counterparts asked not to be named in this article.
