The Greater China & South East Asia book consists of 9 countries, is free, and covers Mainland 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 2019.

Hiring Trends in Singapore

Hiring activity remained steady despite an economic slowdown during 2019. We expect to continue to see similar levels of hiring in 2020, though international events, such as the US–China trade war, may impact manufacturing and see organisations become more conservative with their hiring in the short-term. Tech and transformation remained the dominant focus for companies hiring in Singapore in 2019 and will continue to drive hiring in 2020. 

Talent with both niche, technical skill sets and a commercial mindset will remain in short supply in 2020. Employers should consider widening their search through campaigns such as Balik Kampung, which reaches out to overseas-based Singaporeans to bring them home and help overcome talent shortages. Additionally, hiring managers need to be flexible and empathetic towards what a modern candidate is looking for.
