Jobs in Banking Industry

Postby Liberto » Sun, 11 Dec 2005 6:36 am

Hello, I am from NZ and looking to relocate to Singapore. I am looking for banking jobs in either in Business Development , Retail, Relationship Management or Business Banking. I am able to converse fluently in Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, Foochow and English. Qualification include a MBA.
Is PR status a necessity before applying as advertised jobs seem to indicate so??

Any tip or pointer would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Jobs in Banking Industry

As I recently relocated from the states, i can offer only insights on my experience to date. If it says SP or PR, dont apply if you havent got it, my experience suggests its fruitless. Getting an economic visa if you are good (your blurb indicates such) should be fine.

Try the firms directly as well as this will help especially gaining visa. MNCs will be a good bet. If poss try and get round hr dept.

Although as its banking its going to be tougher maybe from afar, networking is really key here i think. Local firms will value the lingo but not the mba from my experience with my masters degrees.

I would suggest that retail would be the toughest on your list to get round sp or pr.

Good luck in your search!

You dont need PR to apply for job in Banking field. Most banks will apply for EP for u once they accept yr application.

Depends how many yrs experience u have. If u r fresh grad, apply graduate management program thro major banks' website. If u been in the industry for yrs, then apply thro headhunters.

Hope it help.
