banking employers on a role

Job candidates with strong skill sets in risk management and accountancy and finance professionals are in high demand within Hong Kong’s banking and financial sector as employers seek to stem losses, bad debts and compliance fines, according to the latest Hays Quarterly Report for Hong Kong.

“Banking employers in Hong Kong are focusing on building their risk and compliance function following years of lacklustre corporate performance,” Dean Stallard, Regional Director of Hays in Hong Kong, said. “We expect them to step up hiring to prevent new bad debts from arising.”

“Despite weaker sentiment overall that may result in less headcount creation for corporate or investment banking professionals, candidates with credit risk approval experience will continue to be in high demand as companies add more resources to tighten the provision of credit”, Stallard said.

According to the report, some of the highly sought after professionals in Hong Kong include: Accountancy & Finance, Banking and Financial Services, Engineering, Life Sciences, IT, Insurance, Procurement, Property, Supply Chain and Sales and Marketing.
