Most of those types of jobs have left Singapore and have been relocated back to India, Philippines, China and so forth. If you do find a position here you will be up against local who are perferred by the MOM. So unless you really have some specialized nuggets to roll out on the negotiation table I'm afraid you might have a bit of a time finding something, or finding something that will pay more than the minimum. Fortunately, if you are married to a SC and don't have any type of damoclese sword hanging over you head here (like having been on a WP at some time in the past here and then married an SC without getting permission to marry from the MOM here, then you shouldn't have any problem getting an LTVP/+ which will make job hunting a lot easier, providing there are positions.

No. But you will not get any expat perks either.

You get to stay in the country legally and work for anyone that will hire you.
