Think Future - Top 100 jobs in Singapore 2015

By Salary.sg

This is Salary.sg’s 2015 edition of the 100 Best-Paying Jobs in Singapore. Just like last year, we have included a second ranking table specifically for the Financial Services Industry which we all know is the source of many highly paid jobs here.

We used the wage data from Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to generate our Top Jobs ranking tables.

The MOM wage data exclude bonuses and profit sharing. Also, take note that “(the) wages for certain occupations, especially those where performance-based bonuses constitute a significant portion of total wage, would be lower than expected. Examples of such occupations are brokers, dealers and senior management staff.”

Without further ado, we present the 100 Highest-Paid Jobs in Singapore, as well as the Top 40 Jobs in Financial Services. The wage numbers are the third-quartile monthly gross wages.
