Construction Recruitment Agencies

Supply Needed Foreign Workers.

Singapore has long relied on the mutual invested interest between foreign workers

and the city-state to drive growth the nation’s economy. They lay pipes, prepare

concrete mixes, weld steel and operate construction machinery that builds the

foundation of the country’s infrastructure – and this arrangement is unlikely to

change in the near future.

Construction recruitment agencies in Singapore continue to function as the main

supply of manpower, who rely on their well-established networks to find, filter and

legally process workers for work. (For job seekers looking for a job in Singapore, find

Construction recruitment agencies help provide an affordable supply of manpower. Picture via Cities of Migration.

On average, foreign construction workers from Bangladesh in Singapore earn about

300% more than their counterparts back home (average in Bangladesh =

S$0.52/day; India = S$3.13/day; Singapore = S$3.98/day). The widespread of

English as the lingua franca of government, education and business also makes

working in Singapore highly attractive for workers hailing from these countries, as

most of them are able to speak it as a second language.

Foreign construction workers usually live in company dormitories which not only

lends cost savings for the workers and the companies who hire them (in the absence

of dormitories companies would have to pay workers a higher salary to make the

jobs more attractive), but also provides workers adequate living conditions and

security. Living conditions may even be better than what they might get back home

while on the job.

However, PRCs are starting to find the salaries less attractive as their own country

develops and wages in their homes country bridge the gap.

Foreign workers remain important even after government raises

foreign worker levy.

Although the government raised the foreign worker levy for 2015 and 2016, cost

savings still greatly justify hiring foreigners in the construction industry. With the

foreign levy charges factored in, each worker costs approximately S$1500. In

addition, employers are not subject to a minimum wage as the MOM states that

salaries should be based on market conditions and the state of the economy.

For more information on foreign worker eligibility, restrictions and requirements set

by the Ministry of Manpower for the construction sector, visit the MOM website and

details regarding the legal rights of employers and work permit holders in Singapore.
