Job Vacancies 2016
5 in 10 job vacancies are PMET jobs; mainly education, healthcare, infocomm and service-related occupations
Nearly half of all vacancies as at 30 September 2016 were for professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs). The job openings were mainly education, healthcare, infocomm and service-related occupations. These are the key findings from the “Job Vacancies 2016” report released by the Manpower Research and Statistics Department, Ministry of Manpower.
The steady increase in PMET share of job openings from 39% (or 24,300) in 2013 to 48% (or 25,800) in 2016 reflects restructuring of the economy and workforce. The increase in PMET vacancies was mainly from financial & insurance services, professional services and information & communications. At the same time, there was a decline in the non-PMET vacancies, mainly in accommodation & food services, construction, wholesale & retail trade and manufacturing.
