Tech jobs no longer lead Best Jobs list in Singapore

The rankings consider salary, employer demand, and consistent growth in job postings.

Tech jobs have experienced a decline on Singapore's Best Jobs list for 2024 compared to the previous year, according to hiring platform Indeed.

In 2023, nine out of the top twenty spots were occupied by tech-focused roles, whilst in 2024, only software engineers made the cut. 

The rankings considered salary, employer demand, and consistent growth in job postings from 2021 to 2024.

Leading the list of the best jobs in Singapore is director of communications, followed by tax managers, recruitment managers, senior mechanical engineers, and procurement managers rounding up the top five positions. Engineering roles dominate the list, comprising 25% of the top jobs.
