Default Finding work - how easy is it?

Hi,

Can anyone share their thoughts/experience on how easy it is for an English only speaking, British foreigner to find work in Singapore (I would learn the local language once committed)?

Can you recommend where's best to search for employment opportunities, i.e. job sites, employment agencies, etc.?

What is the employment culture like and how does that differ to the UK?

Thanks in advance!

And your skill is?
Do research and get some info on Singapore. The fact that you are British is irrelevant. Skills and education counts just like in any other countries you enquired about.

Hey the working language in Singapore is actually english so you would not have much trouble in terms of language. However, jobs are a bit more complicated due to the VISA applications and other procedures. You can google for some HR websites and see if there are jobs that fit your skills!
