About the Salary Survey

Now in its twentieth edition, the Robert Walters annual Salary Survey is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world.

The Greater China & South East Asia books consist of 9 countries, is free, and covers China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Phillipines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Our Salary Survey is based on the analysis of permanent, interim and contract placements made across each of our geographies and recruitment disciplines during 2018.

Hiring trends - Indonesia

In 2019, the government’s continued efforts to attract foreign direct investment will see more new entrants to the market, while local businesses are expected to push ahead with expansion plans to acquire greater market share. In particular, rapid development in Jakarta’s transportation infrastructure will continue to drive demand for civil and structural engineers. Skilled tech talent will also be sought after as organisations continue to invest in e-commerce and digitalisation.

Demand for skilled bilingual professionals will outweigh supply and companies should consider expanding their search to include overseas-based Indonesians who have the required language and niche skill sets. Our Pulang Kampung campaign can support companies by identifying and securing skilled Indonesians residing overseas.
