Default Nparks

Hi,

Anyone has worked in Nparks before?

Interested to find out about salary scale and working hours.

1) executive position

2) manager position

Age: 38
7 years of related experience (1,2)
Male singaporean
Local poly diploma, Private corespondence degree. (related training for above 1 & 2)
Last drawn $5000.00 (Manager post)

I checked govt website and seems they have more Managers then executives/officers.

Any advice is welcome. Also pls PM me if not convenient. Thanks a million.

Your age and experience is too senior to be Manager at NEA. Managers are either fresh degree grads in some departments or work ~2-3 years there since leaving school.

You should be applying for at least Senior Manger if not Assistant Director jobs.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. But the concern that I read online is that HR/Hirers usually look for local Uni Grad. which is why I kinda seek advice here. But my education n training is definately related n not a general deg.

Hence I suppose that the HR will probly screen n place Local Grads over me if I apply for too senior position.

BTW, I am looking at Nparks. Not NEA.

I think NParks & NEA pay scale very similar.

The way it works is this, either they recognize your degree and pay your according to your experience as a Div 1 officer or they don't consider you degree grad and classify you as diploma Div 2 officer.

If they recognise, you won't get selected for Manager job because that's more for fresh degree grads.

If they don't recognise, you also won't get Manager job because they will evaluate your experience and pay as a Div 2 officer instead of Div 1.

Either way, it won't work for you.

Fresh out of school diploma holders probably get $2,300 tops. I would say with your "years" of relevant experience, you would be very lucky to get $3,500, unless you got a damn solid track record and a portfolio of past accounts and clients to back up your ability.

Your correspondence degree, unless issued by a high-ranking university, is probably worth f***-all. You're probably better off staying in your current $5,000 job.
