I am heading for a role in one of MOH's departments (should be obvious since its neither ministry or SB).

Which pay scale should I really be taking my benchmark from? NS/Local U/2nd upp
Scholarship in biostats? You won't have many outside options with that after serving your bond. Think twice

from what i gathered, ppl under the graduate award (which i assume you're under), may not necessarily be posted only to mohh. there are ppl already serving their bond in moh hq.

how different do you expect things to to be, knowing if it's a scholarship or a sponsorship?

i would expect you to be put in a pay scale similar to a degree fresh grad, except a little more since you have a masters.

Default Moving to civil services

I am 40 working in private sectors all along. Because private sectors are mostly foreign owned and our manpower policy is very much welcoming especially the past 5 years. Most of the VP and Director level are taken by talents.

Looking at most of the 40s being retrench and out of work even though they are well qualified because of office politic struggle. I am looking into civil service. What are the chances for a 14k role?

Chances may not b high... 14k in cs might b a superscale pay alrdy... And most of the time pple holdin such key positions are either scholars or those with calibre and haf served in cs for a while.

I noe of someone who used to b a bank VP, gotten a substantial pay cut and "demotion" to Snr AD when crossin over to cs.

I don't think you stand a chance, unless you have some connection.

$14K is what a MX9 (entry superscale grade) officer gets After a few years. Not likely that the civil service will offer an outsider such a grade/salary scheme.

If you're truely of high calibre and is able to lead/contribute to the nation, you can try the MA/AO route: The Singapore Administrative Service

The other alternative is the political route.

Having said so, those candidates who can meet those requirements are already corporate high fliers and bosses i.e. not those retrenched and in need of a well-paying job.

Actually if you consider the bonus in public service (roughly 2-3.5 months for C grader, 5-7 months for A grader) a 14k/month equates to $9500/month (assume 6 month bonus) roughly a SAD/DD level so I would say yes, it is possible.

Don't try to play around with the numbers. That is not the intention.
