Increased hiring and more jobs expected in the labour market in Singapore. Many industries have fully recovered and are looking to expand their presence.
According to Randstad Singapore 2022 Market Outlook & Salary Snapshot Report, “Even though 2021 was not without its challenges, businesses and employees in Singapore remained steadfast and stayed the course throughout the year … starting Q1 of 2021, the labour market has shifted from being employer-led to candidate-driven, indicating a significant recovery in the business and recruitment markets in 2022, which we can all look forward to.”

As more businesses in Singapore “innovate, digitalise and restructure”, additional highly-skilled jobs are expected to be created in the coming future.
Along with being an exacting year, 2021 was also an enriching year for the tech industry in Singapore.
The COVID-19 pandemic triggered a transition onto the digital platform, leading to a significant growth in areas such as data analytics, cloud computing, cybersecurity, e-commerce, and software-as-a-service (SaaS).
A strong pillar of Singaporean economy, manufacturing grew by 10.3% between 2019 and 2020, contributing 21.5% to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Singapore.
Banking & Financial Services
The financial services sector in Singapore proved to be resilient throughout the economic impact of the pandemic.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) expects the banking sector to continue to do well in 2022.
With the move to online customer portfolios, the digital transformation is revamping the insurance industry in Singapore.
New technologies are being explored to predict the demands of the customers and on developing processes and products accordingly.

How can I work abroad in Singapore?
A foreigner that intends to work abroad in Singapore must have a valid pass before they begin work in the country. This is also known as the Singapore work visa.

Employment Pass: For foreign professionals, executives and managers that intend to work overseas in Singapore.

Though small area-wise, Singapore does pack a punch economically-speaking. Singapore is among the four economies – with Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea – to be together referred to as the Asian Tiger Economies.|
