ICA (under Home Affairs)
 
Anybody here care to share the life of an ICA Senior Officer?
After getting my part time degree in UniSim, I'm planning to apply for that position.
Anybody care to share or advice on the career progression and pay or even the job nature?
Thanks in advance!!

realistically, you should be applying for ICA Junior Officer. They may not recognise SIM/MDIS/Auston/PSB etc....

Unregistered 18-08-2012 04:58 PM

Pardon me if I'm wrong, I have some friends who are UniSim degree holders who are in Senior Uniform Positions.

Unregistered 19-08-2012 03:13 PM

Can try. Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
Unless there are strong recommendations, it is difficult to join the public sector with an external degree or distance learning degree.

usually they are promoted from junior to senior position after getting their deg, but if u want to enter as a senior position with non-local uni degree, it will be very hard, unless perhaps u did very very well for ur NS.

Yes. He did his part time degree in UniSim while working full time for the civil service in one of the home team agency in a civilian position. After graduating with a degree, he applied for the senior uniform officer.

What is the prospect of a ICA senior officer? How is the pay different between police senior officer and ICA senior officer?

Unregistered 05-10-2014 10:50 PM

Pay scheme
 
Check out this file: https://www.mha.gov.sg/get_news_file...9fa_AnnexC.pdf

even though its 2years old, its a much better representation than the vague representation you see on the ICA website

ICA is an agency under the Home Team (I.e., Ministry of Home Affairs) and thus adopts the same placement policy for both junior and senior officers across other Home Team agencies.

As a diploma holder (or advanced diploma), you'll just be a Junior Officer (meaning NCO grade or Specialist scheme, as they call it).

A buddy of mine whom applied as ICA Senior Officer scheme and his highest qualification that he has attained is Advanced Diploma. They contacted him said that his application is still in process. So, I'm confused.

Does it have any career progression?

Unregistered 26-03-2016 07:37 PM

The pay auto increases every year. Remuneration, for SO, default C grade is 2.25 mths (used to be 2). C+ 2.75, B 3.25. There's a bit of politics going on inside.

Very rigid, follow SOP, don't question much and do as you're told should be able to do well.

Overall, the pay package is good. You take back about 16-17 mths pay per year on average. 13th mth + 2.25 mth PB + middle of the year small bonus (~0.5) + year end bonus (~0.5 - 1).

Job is not hard, but selfish backside coverers on top and numbers chasers make it hard.

These days, due to the security situation, you becoming like half a policeman already. So much more security focused than last time.

Sounds like ure already in ICA as an SO. Any idea if its easier for a JO from other home team dept (5+ years of relevant working experience) to join as an SO in ICA with a private degree?

Unregistered 04-05-2016 12:17 PM

Did anyone else apply for this position? Sent in my application last month but heard nothing back.
