This is an overview report on a sampling for Technical Managers who handle chemical and health solutions in Asia. Before starting a project, we align the requirements with this kind of pre-search summary.

(Details in this summary have been limited or removed to protect the confidentiality of the parties involved.)

Summary

Technical managers who have experience with end-to-end technical design and solution development. Have worked on specific customer applications within chemical applications or healthcare.

Total Sample Market: ~800
Suggested Available Pool Market: ~130
Currently Active on the Market: ~50
(judged based on social media activity and length of service in present role)

Findings

This talent pool is constrained in depth of design and development experience. There is a reasonable spread of talent around the region and a search for talent within this market seems viable on the surface.

Recommendations

If the team is willing to hire people with a broad range of design involvement/experience there will be a wider pool to access.
Advertising may be a suitable approach if the team is willing to consider people from a wide range of technical backgrounds.
Given the relatively small talent pool, we recommend directly approaching relevant professionals via referral or direct sourcing on platforms like LinkedIn.
