Which is fine if you are Singaporean or PR, I'm assuming the OP is neitherStrong Eagle wrote:Hiring contractors, even on a long term, is quite common. Works for both employer (who does not pay CPF, insurance, etc) and employee (who gets a bit more and handles own CPF, insurance, etc).
Flip through JobsDB & co, and you'll see permanent positions for experienced software architects for <S$4000/mo. Of course, if you have significant experience in some niche field in demand, you can earn much more, but you'd have to be really hot shit to rake in north of S$20,000 a month. Unless you already have local customers lined up, or can do 100% remote work (not likely if you're an architect/team lead?), I would not advise moving here.SingForYourSuper wrote:My question is, is this way of working common in Singapore.

iI you can get a solid job offer (full-time), it should not be a problem to get a visa, and then you can move on from there. But that's a very big if (what can you offer that the locals can't do?), and just landing here and attempting to sell yourself without any contacts would be a very risky gamble indeed.SingForYourSuper wrote:I take your point on the visa situation. From what you are saying, it seems fairly difficult to obtain a work visa. I wish it was as difficult in the UK - the UK takes all comers; you don't even need to be able to speak/read/write English let alone have any useful skills!
