FPT Software Danang thirsty for skilled labour

On February 22, local authority delegation led by Mr. Ho Ky Minh- Vice Chairman of Danang People’s Committee, paid a visit to FPT Complex. The delegation also included Mr. Nguyen Quang Thanh- Director at Danang Department of Information and Communications and representatives of relevant departments.

On this occasion, Director of FPT Software Danang- Mr. Nguyen Tuan Phuong reviewed the success of the unit as well as the orientation to 2020. FPT is currently the largest IT corporation in Da Nang as well as in the Central Vietnam. FPT has made remarkable achievements, accompanied with the development of the city for many years, helped Da Nang become an attractive destination in the field of software export and provided more than 2,000 jobs in the IT sector in 2016, etc.

The delegation visited FPT Complex in Danang.

FPT Software Danang is expected to reach over 5,000 people in the next three years. By 2020, the company aims to have around 7,000 employees in all positions. The latest goal is to transfer technology, expand global customers, improve working skills for employees and invest in the construction of FPT Complex.

However, the biggest difficulty of FPT Software Danang is lack of human resources both in quantity and quality. “FPT Software is a great environment for thousands of young people where you can develop yourselves very fast,” said Mr. Nguyen Tuan Phuong. “At FPT Software Danang, within three years, the company aims to reach 5,000 employees. The “thirst” for high quality human resources with good technical and foreign language skills is a big challenge for the company”.

He also hoped that the city would have tax incentives as well as opportunities for FPT to participate in the city’s major projects. Prior to the comments and suggestions of representatives of FPT, Vice Chairman Danang People’s Committee Ho Ky Minh promised to support FPT as well as create favorable conditions and call investment to develop FPT Urban Area. “I am looking forward to the development of FPT and hope that the company can fulfill its goal this year, especially contributing to the development of the city,” he said.

From a company with 400 people, FPT Software Da Nang now reached nearly 3,000 people. In recent years, FPT Software Danang always achieved average growth rate of 50-60% per year, IT staffs also increased rapidly. Many projects worth millions of USD with big partners in the world have been implemented in FPT Danang in the fields of cloud computing and artificial intelligence. With the orientation of over 5,000 people in the next three years, FPT Software  Danang will continue to prompt recruitment.
