Commentary on Finance and Accounting in Commerce and Industry Roles and Remuneration in Singapore for 2018

In 2018 salaries are not expected to change too drastically. An increasing number of employers are hiring candidates with less experience so there is a greater potential for junior manager roles - moreover, the range of salaries for managers will therefore widen.

Although recruitment has been quieter comparative to about 5 years ago, there are plenty of ‘controlling type’ roles where companies are looking for candidates with strong internal controls, SOX, etc.

Although many MNCs have SSC outsourced they prefer reviews to take place in the Singaporean headquarters by employees with a strong of experience.

Other roles we see in demand are FP&A, sales analysts and business partnering roles where Finance are seen as advisors to senior stakeholders - Forecast analysis, budgets, growth and of course, doing presentation to stakeholders.

Recruitment demand continues to be due to a mix of both replacement hires and new positions.
