Global Salary Survey 2017


Healthy recruitment levels expected in 2017    

The Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2017 has been released. The annual survey contains recruitment market updates, hiring advice and benchmarks salaries across our global markets.


Hiring trends in Singapore

In 2017, we anticipate that the IT job market will continue to experience high levels of recruitment, especially with the Singapore National Research Foundation's plans to boost the local start-up ecosystem. 

In addition, while hiring activity for front office banking roles will be slow and more candidates shift from sell side to buy side roles, hiring managers will still be seeking investment professionals with solid track records and strong client bases in 2017.

Following the introduction of the Fair Consideration Framework in 2014, demand for both domestic and Singaporean talent returning home from overseas will also continue this year.
