Legal and compliance posts were the hottest jobs in Q1: report

Followed by finance and IT.

Singapore saw a 30% surge in job advertising volumes in the legal and compliance space, a report by Robert Walters revealed.

The report showed that positions in anti-money laundering and financial crime were particularly in demand.

Meanwhile, both accounting & finance and IT saw an 18% jump in job advertising.

Companies prioritise Singaporean professionals when hiring and that emphasis will continue throughout the year. Only when all channels of recruiting domestic talent have been exhausted do hiring managers expand their search to foreign candidates. Despite offshoring within the foreign investment banking industry in the last six months, financial services still remains a major part of the Singapore economy and we look forward to a more buoyant sector in the year ahead,” said Toby Fowlston, Robert Walters Managing Director for Southeast Asia.
