Phnom Penh SEZ launches national recruitment campaign offering thousands of job opportunities
Introduces plans for medical facilities, additional dormitories

Phnom Penh, Cambodia – Phnom Penh SEZ has today launched a national effort to promote a range of job opportunities at Cambodia’s leading special economic zone. With an improved outlook on the economy for the coming years, support by favorable export access to a variety of world markets and a comparably low wage level within the region, Phnom Penh SEZ has seen an enormous surge in global interest in this modern industrial park on the outskirts of the Cambodian capital.

“Demand for investment in Cambodia is in fact so high that our partners often have a hard time to find a large number of workers on all levels of skill. We support them by providing a safe and stable, clean environment, support on administrative issues as well as with the recruitment of staff. Phnom Penh SEZ as a new major investment destination in Southeast Asia offers thousands of workers a chance to experience the tremendous growth of Cambodia first hand – and to contribute to its future” say’s Hiroshi Uematsu, Managing Director of Phnom Penh SEZ.

World-class brands such as Ajinomoto or Minebea already operate at Phnom Penh SEZ while others such as Yamaha are planning to set up operations. “We grow constantly and are permanently looking to fill open positions. If someone is looking for an opportunity to enter the work market, unskilled or skilled, trained or untrained – do not hesitate to contact us” says Kim Va, Customer Service Manager at Phnom Penh SEZ. “Good workers can make their way up the career ladder fast and take on more responsibilities. People in Cambodia are eager and want to move forward, this is the place to come to”, he says. “At the same time – you don’t need to go abroad to work but can now have a good future near your home”.

“Don’t be shy. Contact us via 017 555 682 or 097 727 9702, bring your CV or fill out our application form to our Phnom Penh SEZ office on National Road No.4 or apply at any labor department office in your province”.

Today, more and more companies looking to produce value products for the world market are offering opportunities to workers, mechanics, engineers, administrative staff and other positions in a variety of industries. At Phnom Penh SEZ, training is offered to those who have the talent, but not yet the knowledge for their task in a modern industry.

Over 20 journalists attended the launch of the national recruitment campaign, which featured presentations of both the Phnom Penh SEZ corporate and recruitment campaign videos and offered a chance for a tour of the facilities, as well as an opportunity to talk to workers currently employed at Phnom Penh SEZ.
