Hiring trends – Singapore
The job market in Singapore is likely to remain active in 2018. As digital transformation continues to be a key focus for companies in Singapore, demand is set to be high for professionals with both traditional and new technology skills. Insurance, logistics and e-commerce will be some of the key industries driving digital transformation. Employers are also likely to seek sales & marketing experts who are up-to-date with digital trends, and have strong analytical skills.
The contract market is also expected to grow as candidates become more open to contracting opportunities to broaden their corporate exposure. This is especially true of those seeking flexibility in their roles. Demand is expected to continue to remain high for local talent. In light of this, our ‘Balik Kampung’ campaign is more relevant than ever in connecting overseas Singaporeans with jobs back home.
