China's e-commerce, high-tech and financial sectors may hire more staff this year, recruitment firm Robert Walters said in its Global Salary Survey yesterday.
"The demand for professionals with relevant skills will continue to be key areas for employment," said Matthew Bennett, managing director of Robert Walters in China.
Demand for technology professionals with e-commerce, digital, Big Data and online marketing skills will remain buoyant this year, the survey showed.
High-tech companies are also looking for mid-range finance professionals this year. Financial services firms are likely to recruit risk control, compliance and auditing professionals to strengthen middle and back office functions, according to the report.
The salaries of e-commerce and digital professionals are expected to increase by 15-20 percent compared with last year, the report said.
