Singapore’s Hunting for Skills

Nearly 50 percent of job vacancies are for professionals, managers, executives and technicians

Employers in Singapore are once again on the hunt for workers who can fill higher value-added positions. The share of job vacancies for professionals, managers, executives, and technicians has risen steadily for four years, to 48.5 percent in September 2017, data from the Ministry of Manpower showed Wednesday. At the same time, the share for clerical, sales and service workers declined for a fourth year, while openings for production and transport operators, cleaners and laborers rose for the first time since 2011 despite slowing construction activity.
