We recommend that employers post job ads without restrictions based on age, gender, race, nationality, marital status, and other factors that may indicate discriminatory practices in job postings for all positions since 2022. The Fair Hiring policy from SEEK, our Australia-based parent company, we have implemented across 8 countries in the APAC region.

The Puay Ung Phakorn Economic Research Institute, covering job postings in Thailand from October 2020 to July 2023, from over 5,500 employers and 300,000 job advertisements, found that age and gender restrictions persist in the current job market. Nearly 40% of job postings for positions requiring education below bachelor's degree level specify a preferred gender. For positions requiring a master's degree or higher, only 6% specify gender. Jobs predominantly seeking male applicants are technical or construction-related, while those primarily seeking female applicants are in accounting or administrative roles. 

Ms. Duangporn further emphasizes that Fair Hiring not only helps organizations overcome the challenge of finding candidates but also increases opportunities for employers to find right candidate s with relevant experience, knowledge, and skills suitable for the position. It also enhances opportunities for the success of all candidates in Thailand, who are unique and uniquely talented individuals.
