Please la, MINDEF only came in at the end to wayang because they got a supply of free labour (hello NSFs). Which other gov agency got free labour to use?

Big international events or incidents are done by different ministries. Financial events are organized by MOF and MAS. Environmental events are organized by MSE. Shangri-La Dialogue is organized by MINDEF. If got financial crisis who respond? Of course MTI, MOF, and MAS la. If got flooding who respond? Of course LTA and PUB la.

You so blinded by your support for MINDEF that you keep thinking MINDEF has the heaviest responsibility in Singapore. This is wrong.

There is no doubt that Defence is important. No one disputes this. But this cannot be a cheat code to extract as much resources as you can from the national budget. The fact of the matter is that Defence has been playing up this reason to justify its ridiculous spending. There is so much waste in MINDEF and SAF lying around. People order things they don't use. Hire people for roles that are unnecessary. It's sad that this behaviour continues to be accepted because whenever you challenge them, they will just say that "defence is paramount" and that the "output of their work cannot be quantified".

I'm sure there are many roles in MINDEF that are crucial to the security of the country. But I'm also sure that there are just as many roles in MINDEF that do not serve a real purpose. It's high time for a detailed and impartial review of the job functions in MINDEF. Keep what we want and discard the rest.

i guess we are not going to convince you otherwise. sadly i dont have the IQ or eloquence to broaden your mind. you are probably those that thinks NDP is a waste of money, helping other countries during natural disasters are a waste of money. i shall leave it as such and let time mature your mind and thinking. cheers.

Default Slow progression

The progression for dxos is slow.

Look at post on rsn facebook page. How is this even news.

Copy from fb:

Having been a part of the Naval Plans Department (NPLD) since 2008, Ms Karen Koh has witnessed the growth and development of our Navy over the years.
Together with her team, Karen is responsible for planning the operations and support budget for our naval facilities, including overseeing the construction, maintenance, and upgrading of our naval infrastructure.
Karen is currently involved in improving the environmental sustainability of our Navy's infrastructure by innovatively incorporating energy-efficient elements.
In recognition of her contributions over the years, Karen will be promoted from DX10 to DX11. Congratulations on the well-deserved promotion! 👏🏻

Hi,

I am considering applying to DXO as counsellor.

Can anyone share some light about what would the pay scale for counsellor be like and the jobscope?

TIA.

I recently applied for manager role in mindef, and was told I'd have to go for some written test? How's the test like in terms of difficulty? how long does it roughly take and when is the earliest I can get the results? Does the test require some level of IQ?

I think different positions might have different written tests. I recall that I was informed about a written test in the same email as interview.
