“Here are five key words to summarize the Chinese search market: growth, diversity, competition, localization and integration,” said Carren Shi, managing director and country head of China at ZRG Partners. “In the last 30 years, the executive search business has grown tremendously due to the benefit of economic growth in China domestically and internationally, especially with the ‘Belt and Road initiative’ spanning more than 68 countries and encompassing 4.4 billion people and up to 40 percent of the global GDP,” she said. “It is estimated that over 60,000 search firms are in China and over 470,000 people are employed in this sector.”
“I believe strong hiring will continue within the healthcare, pharma, medical device, consumer/life style brands, hotels/travel, as well as the financial services/insurance/investment sectors here in China,” Ms. Shi said. “Big year coming up!”
