About the Salary Survey 

Now in its twentieth edition, the Robert Walters annual Salary Survey is the most comprehensive review of professional salaries and recruitment trends around the world.

The Greater China & South East Asia book consists of 9 countries, is free, and covers China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Our Salary Survey is based on the analysis of permanent, interim and contract placements made across each of our geographies and recruitment disciplines during 2018.

Hiring trends – Singapore 

The positive recruitment activity seen in 2018 is expected to continue in 2019. Digitalisation will remain a major focus of many organisations in Singapore and we have seen jobs evolving to become more analytical and data-driven as a result. Professionals who can marry digital skills with industry expertise to drive the business will be particularly sought after. The buy side of the financial services sector is also seeing more positive recruitment activity than in a number of years. 

The competition for skilled  Singaporean professionals will remain strong in line with local manpower policies and employers should consider expanding their search for talented professionals to include overseas-based Singaporeans. Our Balik Kampung campaign supports companies with their search by identifying and securing skilled Singaporeans residing overseas.
