Two Korean technology giants are seeking to hire thousands of people in Vietnam, including workers, engineers and IT staff.

In September, Samsung announced it is looking to hire 1,000 production staff for its Bac Ninh factory. A month earlier it said it wanted to recruit 3,000 workers for its Thai Nguyen plant.

The company plans to expand operations at the former to increase production of flagship phones Z Fold and Z Flip to 25 million units a year.

It is also looking to recruit thousands of employees to work in R&D. It is building a $220-million R&D center in Hanoi with 2,200 - 3,000 researchers and other staff, and plans to open it in 2022.

LG's factory in Hai Phong is also hiring new laborers, including IT and R&D engineers.

It is offering VND9,5-13 million for a technician's position. The LG Display factory in Hai Phong also announced that it is in need of 5,000 more production workers.

Due to Covid-19, the recruitment is only in Hai Phong and candidates from elsewhere cannot apply this time, an HR official said.

LG has three large factories in Hai Phong, mainly producing phones, TVs, air conditioners, vacuum cleaners, washing machines, and refrigerators.

Samsung has six production facilities in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen provinces that make handheld devices and home electronics, and employ more than 160,000 workers.
