I believe that is like a handful of the government workers. How about MX10 and lower?
280k per annum is nowhere near the top 2%, more like around 5%. Wages towards the top do not scale linearly. Out if a workforce of around 3.6 million, 5% is around 180,000 person. There are still a lot more people earning that kind of wages in private sector than cs.

The $10k pm benchmark was a long time ago, maybe in 2006?

Pay grade: MX9 (Superscale)
Job title: Deputy Director, Director
Salary scale: S$11,110 S$15,280 / S$15,280 S$17,370

Here the Deputy director's salary is the last time scale salary before he crosses over to superscale as a director.
Superscale salaries start at 11k plus. There was a post sometime ago indicating this as 2014 rates. A superscale holder is usually a deputy director or a director.

From the MoM website statistics, top 6.4% earns above annual income of $144k. Do you mean only 1.4% earns between $144k per annum to $280k per annum? That is way too high a gradient. Basically you are assuming only 50k people earning between $144k to $280 per annum. I would expect that superscale at $280k should be around top 3.5%.

Superscale salary starts at $16k pm.

I recalled there was a debate in parliament about MP's allowance and our DPM explained that it was tied to the starting salary of a superscale officer in CS, and that was $16k pm.

Let me try and find that article. It is probably still in the web somewhere.

No it doesn't. It's already clear from the salary ranges given earlier that superscale (now MX9 onwards) starts from 11k plus. I remember the debate in parliament too. It's tied to a certain superscale grade, not the entry grade, I believe. There are many grades in superscale too.

Hi all,

would like to know which MX rank would a Deputy Director in a local university be? MX10 or MX9?

considering entry MX9 - DD level at $11k+

full year including 4-5mths bonus will equate to roughly S$187k p.a.

is that really superscale? if so, SAF equivalent would be say LTC or SLTC rank??

Default Should i wait for public service job offers?

Hi everyone,

I am keen to join the public service as a fresh graduate this year with first class honors. However i am offered 4k from pte sector this week and i have to make a decision on accepting the offer soon.

I like to ask about the difficultly of me securing a graduate job this year in economic ministries like Spring, EDB or MOF.

Furthermore, is it common for people to make the jump from pte sector to public service successfully in terms of job applications?

Thank you!

Accept the offer because you wont know if you can get other offers at this point in time. I believe you applied for this role because you have an interest.

You have to ask why do you want to be in the public service?

I have been in the pte sector since graduation in 2012. I personally do not like the environment in public service. I have friend in public service, 1st class honours, regretted joining the public service. He is too fearful to leave now because he has not been learning much but yet the salary is good.
