More white-collar jobs available in SG vs. other Asian markets: report

The Lion City also has relatively fewer blue-collar jobs.

Singapore creates more white-collar jobs than other markets in Asia, according to Indeed.

Citing an example of the gap between Singapore and other Asian markets, Indeed said 9.7% of job postings in the Lion City are in software development, whilst only 5.4% of these are in other markets.

“The difference in Singapore’s job creation from other Asian economies reflects Singapore’s status as a finance and tech hub,” said Indeed.

On the flip side, Singapore has relatively fewer blue-collar jobs than its neighbours. According to Indeed, only 3.1% of job postings in the country are retail. In other markets, retail accounts for 9.6% of job postings.

Other areas where Singapore creates relatively fewer roles include food preparation and personal care.
