I am a professional - I received 1 offer from a statutory board and 1 offer from a professional scheme. Both positions start off on contract, HR told me it's implemented across the board. My friend was offered a "permanent" role at a stat board, although his compensation is lower and his profession is not as well-paid as mine. I am genuinely confused.

Anyway, "permanent" jobs in private sector are 100% subject to restructuring, retrenchment and sometimes judicial management (like the offshore marine companies). Just take what you can get lor.
