Over 20,000 roles available in Singapore’s infocomm sector
Singapore still has over 20,500 roles in the information and communications sector, ranging from jobs, traineeships and various attachment opportunities, according to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and Workforce Singapore (WSG).
The number of roles still available comes after almost 16,200 job seekers were placed in positions within the sector at end-May.
Manpower Minister Tan See Leng said that partnering with industry groups and recruitment firms and networks played a crucial role in helping jobseekers find jobs.
“Many of these initiatives are ground-up efforts, and are the fruits of labour of various individuals and organisations,” the minister told reporters.
In 2020, MOM and WSG worked with 240 industry partners to match jobseekers and employers, an increase of 20% from 2019.
It has also collaborated with tech firms to leverage artificial intelligence and other functions to improve career match services such as those on WSG’s MyCareersFuture jobs portal.
WSG also has a dedicated initiative where career advisers connect jobseekers with individuals with years of experience and vast networks. The programme began last year in sectors such as healthcare and retail and will be rolled out to more industries progressively.
