Amidst the ongoing pandemic, new recruitment firm DMCG Global has announced details of their increased hiring activity across a number of their office locations including Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai.

Having launched their global recruitment agency only this year, DMCG Global decided to push forward with a positive attitude, also launching their innovative recruitment website for the creative, marketing, communications and technology industries.

The DMCG team noted,

‘Our APAC and MENA clients have proven to be quite resilient throughout the crisis, with the Middle East and Asian markets opening up as the number of coronavirus cases remains relatively low.’

Key findings from DMCG Global show that between March until October 2020, their Singapore office received an overall 30% increase in job orders, with an increased demand for Corporate & Government Communications roles as well as Digital Design and Customer Experience roles.

Reviewing their Singapore data among their specialised sectors, DMCG Global highlighted positive hiring activity among:

  • Communications, up 15% with a solid performance in Corporate and Public Affairs.
  • Digital, 15% growth in marketing.
  • Consulting, Brand & Design – up 35%

Although this is some much-needed good news for the new recruitment firm, DMCG Global did notice a significant 32% decrease in Advertising agency roles but noted they received a 30% increase in work located within Japan.

Overall, hiring activity for DMCG Global has now ramped up in Q3 with a promising outlook for Q4.

Justin McGuire, DMCG Global Co-Founder & CEO for APAC & MENA comments on behalf of the senior team,

‘Our new recruitment business and global team has shown great resilience in a tough year. We’ve adapted, hiring via video, working from home when needed, with team dedication across the network. Our APAC & MENA offices started strong in Q1, experienced a blip in Q2 but have rebounded well in Q3 across all regions. We predict Q4 will make up for lost time and end this year on a good note – ready for 2021.’
