NES Fircroft has been operational in Vietnam since early 2009. We're one of the few international workforce solutions agencies that has an office in-country with over a decade of local recruitment experience.

Based in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), we support contractors and clients in Vietnam across the entire energy mix, from placing personnel onto offshore wind farms and power generation facilities, to fabrication yards and Oil & Gas fields.

Vietnam is experiencing rapid demographic and social change, with an exponentially increasing population dramatically weighted to those under the age of 35. This rapid rise in population is driving Vietnam’s need to invest significantly in its energy portfolio to increase electricity output – a target of 129,500MW by 2030 - and means that there is a growing number of local people choosing to begin their careers in the vast spectrum of the energy industry. Developing renewable energy is one of Vietnam’s priorities to help the country gradually reduce its dependence on traditional sources of power generation, and to do so, installed capacity must increase by around 6,000MW–7,000MW annually.

Staffing Support in Vietnam

We hold all required labour licences and policies to ensure a 100% compliant solution for all stakeholders, whether you already operate in Vietnam or are looking to take your business there. Our business experience and local networks mean that we are able to support foreign investment in both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in particular, and will help businesses to set-up fully compliantly with MOLISA in either location with the talent they need.
