Returning Malaysians: Malaysia Tanah Airku

Connecting overseas Malaysian professionals to some of the largest organisations back home

Tanah Airku

Globalisation has made the world a smaller place. As a business entity in Malaysia, Michael Page would like to help Malaysians working abroad and are keen to return home gain strong footholds in the country’s burgeoning economy.

By tapping into our recruitment expertise, knowledge and global network, the Malaysia Tanah Airku program connects overseas Malaysians to some of the largest, most established brands and businesses in Malaysia. This means better, more targeted job placements for returning professionals, as well as a more robust and more fulfilling career back home.

Why Malaysians are coming home

It’s a great time to start their journey home

Talent in Demand
Spike in CXO positions in both local conglomerates and MNCs across various functions.

Competitive Compensation Package 
For returnees moving back home, companies are typically willing to pay a 20% salary premium.

Great Career Growth
Limitless opportunities to grow careers in technology, consumer products and manufacturing as Malaysia becomes a key market for global MNCs. 

Skills Advantage
Stakeholder management skills gained overseas will have strong advantage due to lack of such expertise in local talent pool.
