Taiwan hiring trends in 2019

Benefiting from key growth drivers including digitalisation, technological development and government initiatives, the Taiwan recruitment market is expected to expand further in 2019.

The Taiwan government has announced strategic initiatives in 2018 which aims to upgrade Taiwan from contract manufacturing to a new commercial model centred on a high-value-added ‘Asian Silicon Valley’. The plan is expected to drive innovations and also the demand for technology talent across various industries in 2019, in particular automation, smart machinery and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Renewable energy are high on the agenda. It became key pockets of hiring activity in 2018 across a number of job functions, in particular engineering, accounting and finance, project management and supply chain, logistics and procurement. Furthermore, 2018 saw buoyant hiring in the healthcare industry, including the traditional areas of pharmaceutical and the growing field of biotechnology. 

At the same time, the continued internationalisation of local companies in Taiwan has led to heightened competition for bilingual professionals and those with international company experience. Professionals who can demonstrate strong bilingual and communication skills are highly sought after.
