Even if you were to manage to get a job here with an International School, while you could get your husband a Dependent's Pass, with his quals, he would most likely only be given a Letter of Consent (LoC) in all probability IF he could find a position. He would most likely have to work for local scale (which for tradesmen, sucks). There is no respect for tradesmen here like in western countries, nor are there strong unions either. Obviously, if he could find a coaching job or even something in the Petrochem field here there would be a little more money in that sector, but most mechanical technician jobs will be normally easily filled by locals from the Polytechnics and ITC colleges and the MOM would be hard pressed to give an S pass to someone from a western country without a degree in that field unless they had at least 10 years in the specific industry.Strong Eagle wrote:I would not settle in Singapore unless you are willing to live with uncertainty of your residence status.

I have no hotline into MoM, and I judge your husband will have a difficult time finding work and getting a work permit for same. Perhaps SMS can chime in on this matter.
Schooling is yet another matter if you plan on staying a while. You're second class as EP, and even PR, when it comes to public schools, and private schools cost a bomb.
I think Singapore is a lovely place, with a good quality of life. But without job security, as might be afforded by working for a MNC that transferred you in, you should consider your Singapore sojourn to be migratory, until and unless you find work that will guarantee you long term renewal of your work permits.
