Job in NGO in Singapore - any recommendation

Postby Sford117 » Thu, 01 Jan 2015 6:23 pm

Hi there,

Anybody has previous experience working for any charity groups / NGOs in Singapore as full time staff?
I'm looking for a full time job in some charity organizations (not on volunteering basis as I still need income to live in this expensive city :)
Currently I work in financial industry but I do have various experience working in charity groups and NGOs as a volunteer.
Please refer if you happen to know someone who is hiring. Happy New Year!

International NGO's are thin on the ground here. Why is that?

(Local NGO will pay low salary)

In my (limited) experience working with NGOs and charity groups, if you have experience working as volunteer for these groups like you claimed, you would have definitely known enough connection within the industry to have access to hiring info.

I must say that you will have a hard time getting a passing for it as a foreigner, and I have yet to see a foreigner working full-time in social services here in Singapore.

If it is charity that you seek, why not your home country? I'm very sure you won't have trouble with visa in home country for that kind of work.

I wish you good luck and may you continue in your good work, Singapore or elsewhere.
