Supply chain experts set to receive pay raises in 2017


Recruitment activity across supply chain was positive in 2016, especially for mid-management positions. Salary levels also rose, with professionals working in the consumer goods industry receiving salary increments of up to 12%.

This rise in salaries is expected to continue in 2017.

This was among the key findings of our latest Salary Survey 2017

The report added that hiring trends for this year are also predicted to remain positive in the supply chain sector.

Given that the last two quarters of 2016 saw candidates reluctant to move jobs to ensure receipt of year-end bonuses, we expect improved activity with a larger number of available candidates looking for roles in 2017. 

Demand for senior professionals, such as distribuition or logistics directors are specifically set to rise as e-commerce businesses expand both in Indonesia and regionally.
