Sure do. But with over 1100 Employment Agency licenses having been given out by MOM, we aren't about to give away secrets to have yet another fly-by-night operator start up. Too much cut-throat competition out there already. Sorry.

I think for overseas workers, you still have chances. Like in Taiwan, they are going to start sporting lottery soon, but they don't have enough professionals in this business. So it could be a good opportunity for a start-up agency.

I have removed your second link in your signature as forum policy dictates that you are only allowed one hyperlink.

Not so simple. You have to pass a test given by MOM before you can be licensed. You MUST have a license to recruit anybody in Singapore for employment in Singapore. You also need a license to place a Singaporean anywhere in the world if you are based in Singapore.
