Labour market access

Effective August 1, 2014, as part of a state initiative to provide more employment opportunities to Singapore nationals, employers will be required to advertise job vacancies on a new, official job platform. Priority is given to Singapore nationals who apply for the positions. As a second alternative, if a position is not occupied by a local, the employer may hire a foreign national.
