Licensed recruitment agents

Postby rogery » Tue, 31 Jan 2012 11:37 am

Hi friends,

Is it true that all recruitment agencies are listed on MOM webpage (http://www.mom.gov.sg/foreign-manpower/ ... ctory.aspx)?

There are a few recruitment companies (like this one: http://www.shengyeinternational.com/index-2.html) introduce themselves as a licensed recruitment agent but I could not find them on the above MOM page, is there something doubtful?

I had a look at their site and it does not appear to be either a recruitment agency nor is their license displayed on the site. (as required by law) They appear to only be a visa application service and maybe a staffing provider (not recruiting but directly employing individuals on their payroll and then short term staffing with their clients.

Yes this is correct. You will also be able to see all staff within that company who are registered.

Just curious, is that even legal here?

Yes it is. But I'm not sure if the rules have changed since I left the recruitment industry (we did recruitment as well as temp staffing. Temp staffing is not recruiting as they are employed on our payroll therefore we were an employer and not a recruiter (we were actually both).
