We're in a great position to complement the existing Robert Walters offering locally, and work with the senior hires they have placed, to help build their teams and support functions. Organisations need talented professionals in junior positions to support growth and thus time is crucial. We will introduce employers to the right candidate within 24 hours.

Walters People Hong Kong launches its first Salary Survey
The Walters People Salary Survey 2020 -- Hong Kong is also launched today. It includes comprehensive information on salaries and recruitment trends in the local junior recruitment market. The salary tables are a useful tool for benchmarking salaries, providing details of recruitment trends and salary information for roles in a full range of professional sectors.
According to the report, the general slowdown in the recruitment market is expected to have a comparatively smaller impact on the overall junior market. Hiring demand for various tech functions in 2020 is expected to be stable across multiple industries, including FMCG, retail, logistics and financial institutions. At the same time, fintech companies and virtual banks are expected to hire more operational tech candidates as they roll out new digital projects.
The report also presents the results of a survey conducted among our candidates, about the factors they consider important in their work life, and their expectations for the job market in 2020. Their responses reveal that a good workplace culture and environment and salary are regarded as the most important contributors to job satisfaction.
"Hiring managers are advised to emphasise career progression opportunities and continuous learning and development to attract and retain talent. Furthermore, companies are encouraged to improve the candidate experience during the recruitment process and enhance employee engagement to attract talent," Tiffany says.
