  1. This problem has been there for years, MOM has been keeping companies in watch list but does nothing about it except continue watching. Every year they report thousands of companies are added into their watch list, but what have they done about it other then watching? If they are serious about it, we wouldn't have been in the situation today , including the GE results. https://mothership.sg/2020/08/mom-investigate-employers-pre-selecting-foreigners/

    Singaporeans lose jobs to FTs

    heard this news on the radio, so decided to search for the full story online... but only Straits Times and Channelnewsasia covered it the local tour guides, although many of them are free lancing, are badly treated by Singapore Tourism Board many foreigners, on S-passes, come here to moonlight as tour guides, charging cheaper fees and forcing our own local ones out of jobs despite years of complains, the situation does not improve the bogus foreign tour guides have no qualifications (the local ones need to go through 9 months of trainings) and they have limited knowledge of our country (sometimes providing wrong information to the tourists, eg saying we are the descendants of Merlion according to legends) of cos, the tour agencies play a part as they are usually the ones hiring the tour guides personally after listening to their plights, i feel it's a sad thing because - tour guides generally dun earn alot, and even so, they are being forced out of jobs by the bogus FTs - the authority is sleeping and not protecting the interests of the local tour guides - most importantly, tour guides are like unofficial ambassadors responsible in introducing our country, history and culture to the tourists... how can this role be taken by foreigners with limited knowledge? haiz...

  9. What will be Singapore's most in-demand jobs for 2019. Good time to take stock on where the sunset industry is and which job to switch to. Just that there is no plotted map for someone to refer to in order to get there other then the security pathway. https://www.straitstimes.com/business/economy/what-will-be-singapores-most-in-demand-jobs-for-2019 SINGAPORE - Singapore hiring is likely to see stable growth in 2019, with top jobs in demand to be analytical and data-driven in nature, according to the latest annual salary survey by recruitment firm Robert Walters. These include data scientists, product management, user experience (UX) designers, and digital roles, with cyber security to remain a major focus, in the wake of recent high-profile cyber attacks in Singapore. The report also found that job movers in Singapore can expect pay increments of 5 per cent to 15 per cent in 2019, and larger hikes can be expected for candidates with specialised skill sets in IT, digital and financial services. Among employers, human resource (HR) professionals with strong experience in HR technologies, as well as talent acquisition professionals for the technology sector will be sought after. Hiring levels for jobs in financial services will also remain positive, with a continued focus on technical and commercial skill sets. Demand will be high for skilled contracting professionals, trade finance professionals in corporate banking, investment and research analysts, and IT professionals in the financial services sector, said Robert Walters. In addition, sales and marketing professionals with big data, digital, e-commerce and transformation experience will be in increasing demand as companies continue their digitalisation efforts. With a limited talent pool, competition will intensify for specialists such as Singaporeans qualified with international and cross-border experience and knowledge in areas such as product management, technology law and blockchain, as well as supply chain and procurement professionals with niche skill sets. According to Robert Walters, the accounting and finance sector will see a demand for professionals with tax compliance and change management expertise, with skill sets in demand including a strong technical understanding and familiarity of regulatory rules, stakeholder engagement and management skills. In the engineering sector, more jobs are expected to emerge as oil and gas prices recover, said Robert Walters. Strong demand is anticipated for professionals in the semiconductor, medical devices, consumer electronics and manufacturing industries, especially in the research and development departments. "The best candidates look for roles they can grow into. Employers who can demonstrate that they have the right teams and systems in place to support a candidate's success in a role are better positioned to secure top talent," said Mr Rob Bryson, Robert Walters managing director for Singapore.

  13. In the last two years, degree holders here have found themselves the most vulnerable to losing their jobs, among all qualification groups. Since 2011, they have also made up a higher proportion of residents made redundant than among all resident workers. Experts suggested three reasons for this - jobs lost in restructuring tending to be held by graduates, greater demand for non-academic skills, and substitution by skilled foreign labour. "As more graduates become available, it brings about more friction in the job-matching process," said UniSIM economist Randolph Tan. "Many graduates think that getting a degree is the pinnacle of achievement, but what they don't realise is that the workplace demands much more of them."

  19. https://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/5-jobs-singaporeans-shun-due-011000264.html We all know that a career in finance or top management is the way to go if you want to make decent money in Singapore. Those of us who have the luxury to choose between making money the easy way or the hard way will normally choose whatever gives us the best pay cheque for the least amount of work. But then there are those other jobs that need to be done. You know what I mean, the kind of jobs that come with way too long hours and way too low salaries. While our lifestyle wouldn't be possible without these jobs, the truth is that most of us wouldn't do them if we had a choice. Here I list 5 badly paid jobs that most of us would turn down if we could: Restaurant Manager If you have to put up with the long hours and stress involved in running a restaurant, make sure you make director ($6000 average salary) or you might be stuck with a manager's salary of just $2621. Anyone feel like 12 hours of pure stress 6 days a week for barely enough money to live on? This may be the right job for you. Mechanical Engineering Technician From playing with Lego to building petrol-powered RC planes, boys in particular seem to love the idea of tinkering with technology. But by the time you get to be old enough to understand the opportunities out there, playing around with noisy mechanical devices all day for a pitiful $2486 salary is probably the last thing you would choose to do. Pre-primary Education Teacher Working with smiling kids, watching them grow and get smarter as you teach them what you know, what a joy...not! It would take a lot more than the average salary of $2000 a month to motivate most of us to want to spend our time appeasing a bunch of rowdy kids and complaining parents. Restaurant Chef If the upcoming episodes of Masterchef Asia to be hosted right here in Singapore inspire you to cook for a living, take a moment to consider that the average salary of a hotel restaurant chef is a weak $2635. You will have to enjoy cooking even more to become a restaurant cook, with an average salary of just $1509. It wouldn't take more than 5 minutes in the sweltering heat of a restaurant kitchen to get most Singaporeans pining for an air-conditioned office! Park and Garden Maintenance Worker There’s nothing like working in the great outdoors, but the proverb that recommends you take up gardening if you want to be happy for life certainly doesn’t apply to Singaporeans. There’s a reason you don’t see many Singaporeans tending public parks, and if plants and flowers are your passion, I suggest you take it on as a hobby. Trust me, those flowers won't look nearly as beautiful when you are stacking rocks from dawn till dusk for a meagre $1050 monthly.

    Jobs Bank officially launched

    i know i will be flamed for saying this... but once again PRs = Singaporeans
  23. Barclays staff are braced for thousands of job losses as part of a far-reaching strategic review designed to cut costs and revitalise its struggling investment bank. Britain’s third biggest bank is expected to announce the job losses, which could amount to as many 15,000, alongside a radical restructuring focused on its investment banking operations. Antony Jenkins, the bank's chief executive, is expected to announce the closure of business areas that were once among the best performing in the bank, including commodities, emerging market fixed income and parts of its operations in continental Europe and Asia. The 300-year-old bank, which operates in 50 countries and employs 140,000 staff, is expected to announce the creation of a new “bad bank” that will oversee the sell-off of the non-core assets. Even so, some analysts have argued that the overhaul won’t be enough to achieve the bank’s profitability targets. In a note on Wednesday, analysts at Citigroup said Barclays may have to delay its target of an 11.5pc return on equity by a year until 2017.

    Jobs for Filipinos only.

    Looks like MOM like to talk co.ck only. Discrimination against Singaporeans still going strong. Just a simple search on job ads reveal many foreigner only positions: So what exactly is MOM doing to stem the flow of discrimination? Or just print motherhood statements in the MSM, and continue shaking legs?
  25. http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/03/10/job-placements-decline-despite-record-jobs-vacancies/ Job placements decline, despite record jobs, vacancies? March 10th, 2014 | Author: Contributions I refer to the Department of Statistics’s (DOS) Monthly Digest of Statistics January 2014 released a few days ago. Job placements declining? Under Employment Services – the ratio of New Registrants to Placements has declined from 48% in July to 45, 38 and 33% in October, November and December, respectively. (Note: Placements – Number of people who were placed into employment by the career centres. This includes those who found their own jobs after receiving services from the career centres.) Record jobs, vacancies – but harder to get jobs? With record numbers of job vacancies, vacancies unfilled over 6 months and jobs creation for locals, in the 2 reports published recently by the Ministry of manpower (MOM) – why is it that the job placement rate for locals is declining? No breakdown into Singaporeans & PRs? Why is there no breakdown of the job placement statistics into Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PRs)? Previous Job placement rate just over 10%? However, according to previous Monthly Digest of Statistics’ reports, the ratio of Job Seekers Placed in Employment to Job Seekers Attended To was 14%, 18% and 12%, for 2011, 2012 and December 2012, respectively. More or less job seekers? Job seekers dropped from 100,504 to 24,500? According to media reports, “between January and November 2012, the number of people approaching the CDCs for training and employment assistance was 24,500, a 3 per cent drop compared to the same period in 2011. The success rates of those being placed into employment has also been higher in 2012. 11,800 were placed into jobs between January and November 2012, compared to 10,100 for the same period in 2011″ However, according to the Department of Statistics’ (DOS) Monthly Digest of Statistics Singapore June 2012, job seekers attended to by the CDCs and e2i, was 99,608 and 100,504, in 2010 and 2011, respectively, and job seekers placed in employment was 17,732 and 14,223, respectively. (“Easier to get jobs?“, Sep 7 and “Latest statistical highlights: Job placement rate drops to 14%, Jul 17) “Job seekers attended to” changed to “New Registrants”? It would appear that the Monthly Digest of Statistics was changed to “New Registrants”, instead of ”job seekers attended to”. This change has resulted in a dramatic increase of the job placement rate from 14 and 18 per cent in 2011 and 2012, respectively, to 36 and 49 per cent. What is the definition and difference between “New Registrants” and ”job seekers attended to”? Was this change announced to anybody? Job placement rate increase 172% (by magic)? So, this change has literally “by the stroke of a pen” increased the job placement rate in 2011 and 2012 by 157 per cent (36 divided by 14) and 172 per cent (49 divided by 18), respectively. So, how is it possible that 100,504 job seekers attended to by the CDCs and e2i in 2011, has dropped dramatically to only 24,500 job seekers approaching CDCs in 11 months (excluding e2i?)?
