$5,900 for a grade 8 is okay. hopefully you will promote by next year (yr 5) to grade 9 and go above 6k.

Smile Is Salary Negotiable?

I have offers from the Civil Service... May I know whether can I negotiate the salary or is fixed based on the pay scale they assign?

I guess it should be a range. However civil service being civic service, they will pay you according to years of experience etc.

Personally don't like tat as you can be in the private sector with years of experience and drawing higher range. But when you head back in, they might just ignore that and just look back at your years of service. My thoughts.

Only in civil service the older you are the better baba.


Outside they see you 40 yo, they are like... Maybe should hire the 25 yo instead. Cheaper.

Relatively true! Guess it should be advisable to touch the private when you are young and perhaps with 10years of experience and then head in gahmen. Perhaps you wont suffer much paycut and get the iron rice bowl haha!

10 years is a long time though.

Not all industry are equal. Some jobs are better in the private sector while other earn more in the civil service.

I have a friend who is doing really well in sales / consultancy and tried to join the government for the stability. He was offered almost half of his take home pay.

How about the other way round? What happens when one tries to go private after 10 years in the civil service?

Guess the 2 run in parallel tracks and do not recognise the progress of each other.

If you want stable and high paying job. Just go passive investment and then pursue your hobby lo
No such thing as high paid, stable, relax, balanced, opportunity, travel, freedom all lumped into one.

Lightbulb Is Salary Negotiable?

I am mid career from private sector.... Want to join civil service, stat board or GLC healthcare.... wonder will they based on my experience from private sector or my local degree education to determine my pay scale? Is it worth to take Contract role of less than 1 year?

I managed to move to private sector after spending 10 years at a stat board. Even received a 30% pay raise. If your skills set is what they are looking for, I don't think it is a major issue to move between public and private sectors. Some agencies have also been seconding their staff to relevant private sector to understand the industry more. While it is harder for private sector employees to be seconded to public service, I've seen attachment programmes where the industry would send a rep to get a sense of how the public service looking after their industry works.

So I'd say relevant experience, knowledge and skill set would help to boost especially in salary and grade if you join from private to public. For public to private, if you have a good sense of regulations to help guide their strategies, I don't see why you should suffer any pay cut either. What's also important is be realistic about how much you are worth with your skills and knowledge. I have an admin staff who knows how to print and photocopy only and he's paid $5k. He's not going anywhere other than staying at public service. No where in private sector is gonna pay your that salary for a cost centre.
