    Question Hiring sales staff based in Vietnam & Kenya

    I understand that this is not exactly related to HK business but can certainly use some help if anyone can do so...I am a HK business trying to hire sales people to be based in Vietnam and Kenya. I have no contacts in these countries and can use some advise on how to find people there. Many thanks.

    Perhaps start with the nearest thing that they have to a consulate / trade development or chambers of commerce in Hong Kong? TDC should also have some contacts for you to start with?

    Consulate of the Republic of Kenya in the Hong Kong SAR and Macau SAR of the People

    Vietnam - people typically use Facebook groups to find staff. I've also been able to do so although aligning your interests with your staff is another issue.

    when we hire people in Vietnam (engineers in our case), we usually go for forums, and post offers, then attend a few fairs. That had worked in the past.

    You can also try to use a recruitment firm on the ground, but that will cost you.

    Good luck.

    I would have called Manpower in Vietnam, it will cost, but they can handle all the legal issues, tax, insurance, sick pay, etc.
