Thinking about it for job stability and lesser traveling commitments

I'm on $8.3k pm now. Bonus + AWS around 5 mths or more depending on company profit.

Do you think it is possible to ask for 15%-20% increment? my pte sector exp is relevant to the role. In addition I also have some exp in the paper writing etc required in SB.
Give your asking salary to them and see what they say. No point asking here, we are not working in HR.

Anyone here moved to SB from pte sector? At around 10 yr exp

Managed to get 15% to 20% jump?
from what i understand. how it works is that, based on the years on experience you have e.g 10 yrs , the HR will discount based on relevance to the job scope (assume 20% discount)

then based on 8 yrs experience, they will benchmark the salary to the median of staffs in the grade with similar yrs of experience.

the offer will be based on benchmark + your current salary based on some formula.

typically 5-10% up nia. dun expect too much.

In general there's no such things as Stat board pay better than Ministry. The only true thing is that Stat board are more flexible, in that they need not adhere to IM. Therefore they are able to offer other incentives.

At the end of the day, it depends on which agency you are looking at. Certain stat boards like EDB, IE and MAS tend to pay more than ministries. Certain stat board like A*STAR on the other hand, don't follow ministries, and therefore no mid-year bonus nor end of year bonus. So it depends.

From my personal experience, certain statboards pay better than Ministry. The benefits are better too. There are those who say that "Oh we are here to serve the country", but we also got to support our families.

The benefits in certain statboards are better, such as flexi-benefits. Some statboards give $800 flexi benefits which you can use to buy items for your family, etc. My Ministry does not have flexi-benefits and also does not build this into the salary. Certain statboards also give $100 - $200 more than the standard increment enjoyed by civil servants. Even the entertainment expenses differs by quite a lot! Some statboards allow much more claim allowances for those in the Ministry. Especially those statboards that are generating their own income.

I have a local uni comms degree and have been working in the media industry for around 2 years since I graduated. I am looking to move into the public sector for better work-life balance and career stability. But the thing is I don't want to go into corp comms or media relations. My work exp is also kinda niche in that it's not the typical 'corporate' environment, so I don't think I have that many transferable skills...

Any advice on which SBs/Ministries or what kind of roles I have a better chance of successfully applying for?
