Singapore's startup boom to create more jobs in 2017

Firms will be on the lookout for digital marketing, data analytics talents.

Next year will be a good one for jobseekers looking for a fresh start as the startup boom in Singapore is seen to create more jobs.

According to Hays Singapore managing director Lynne Roeder, this would be amongst the talent trends in 2017, as startup firms are set to create large number of roles. This is part of Singapore's plans to lock its position as the Silicon Valley of Asia.

“Entrepreneurship is always a driver for the economy, and a sizzling growth of start-ups in Singapore will create new roles for ambitious young Singaporeans,” Roeder noted.

Front and centre in the hiring pipeline will be junior-level candidates who are ambitious and aspirational in line with the culture of start-up firms. Specifically, these firms will be on the lookout for professional in the areas of digital marketing, data analytics, and financial and payment software in 2017.

“Candidates who have prior experience of creating new sales channels and expanding market share via new technology will stand out,” Roeder pointed out, saying that this will result to the increase of the number of digital marketing manager roles next year.
