We are proud to own the leading brands in the field of recruitment in Vietnam, including VietnamWorks - an online recruitment portal and Navigos Search - Vietnam's leading middle and high-level talent recruitment service. 

During 20 years of operation in the Vietnamese market, the most valuable asset that Navigos Group as well as Navigos Search have is the largest and most comprehensive candidate database. Known for our strong service culture and people-centric management, we have maintained our status as the leading recruiting service provider in Vietnam since our establishment in 2002.

Established in 2003, Navigos Search is the leading and largest provider of Executive Search Services and HR Solutions in Vietnam. We offers a variety of talent acquisition solutions to clients, ranging from contingent permanent recruitment, retained executive search, recruitment process outsourcing and management consultancy.

Under Navigos Group, our mission is helping people and companies achieve their dreams. We accomplish this mission thanks to our largest team of experienced, skillful and industry-specialized consultants, our extensive nationwide database of high-profile executives, and a proven recruitment method of international standards..

By staying true to our 5 core values – WOW Service, Improve It, Own It, Straight Talk, Integrity we have consistently delivered a high quality of service to job-seekers and recruiting companies since our foundation in 2002.

As Navigos Group became part of en-japan, an international company with a wide range of expertise in HR and recruitment, we adopted en-japan’s unique 3E method of Employment, Education, and Evaluation. While we are currently the leading entity in the employment field in Vietnam, we are working on Education and Evaluation aspects to complete this 3E method. Our vision in adopting this method is to become even more effective at supporting professionals and companies at all stages of recruitment, including the post-recruitment development journey. We call this vision “success after joining”, and we commit to this vision as a way to develop our organization as well as make a meaningful contribution to the Vietnamese labor market.
