Human Resource Manager Salary?

Postby Racheew » Fri, 31 Dec 2010 8:04 am

Hi,

I have been offered an opportunity at my work. They will train me up for the next year to become a HR Manager of our Asia Pac offices (Seven in total) and then I will relocate to our head office in Singapore.

Very excited to go, but was wondering if anyone has any idea what a HR Manager may earn in Singapore? I want to make sure I get the best possible deal for going over, but am clueless where to begin!?

Also, hopefully I will get rent allowance, being an expat - is there a general amount one should hope for?

Thank you for your help!!

Rachel

From $5000 to 15,000/mo depending on the company, the individual and whether it's treated as a local or "expatriate" hire and where you are from.

Expat housing allowances are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. You might get a decent allowance of 5~10K housing allowance, or they may try for a "local" hire with an above average local salary. I know a lot of Australian Engineers (Civils) who come over here to work a year or two to gain "international" exposure who actually have to share accommodations as they are only given a couple of thousand at best and not much more than local hire salaries. But they gain the exposure and when they return to Oz, they generally can command almost double their peers in their same cohort who never left Oz.

There is no ideal salary or package, only you can decide what you want and how low/high you want to go.

I was told by my company that they are trying to get rid of expat packages, but my boss is trying to get something for me, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

I know it was a broad question, so thanks for taking the time to answer. I'm a bit new at this - lived in Europe for two years, but this seems to be a whole different kettle of fish!

Thanks again, will check out those links!
