Mum returning to work

Postby amiee40 » Wed, 29 Oct 2008 1:35 pm

Hi all.

I have a few questions, hopefully someone out there can help me with.

I want to return to workforce after taking time off to start a family.

My first question is what are the working hours like in Singapore? I've heard Singapore is very competitive and remuneration doesn't often reflect hours worked.

Also are there many jobs out there for CPA qualified but Australian trained accountants. I have been working for the Australian government for the last 5 years so not sure how the Singaporean employers will look upon that.

My last question is what is the expected average monthly salary for someone with my qualifications(degree from Uni of Melb, CPA, completing MBA)?
