October postings were up by 76% from February 2021.
According to a job postings analysis by the global jobs portal, Indeed, hiring activity in Singapore continued to grow throughout October, with demand for tech jobs reaching a new high.
By 30 October, job postings on Indeed were up 76% from their level on 1 February last year. Postings rose by 4.7% in October alone.
Competition for talent in areas such as production (+153% above their level on 1 February 2020) is exceedingly high. Also doing well is installation & maintenance (+117%), tech (+101%) and transportation (+99%). Hiring for engineering also exceeded the national average. Healthcare roles were highly sought, highlighting the need for more workers in the sector to address the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
According to APAC Economist Callam Pickering, “Job creation continues to grow strongly across the city-state, highlighting Singapore’s economic resilience. It reflects the confidence of businesses in Singapore’s economic recovery and their ability to manage the pandemic as the country reopens.”
