Thank you for your email dated 17 June 2012 concerning possible unlicensed agent activity by xxxx Recruitment Agency.
2 When you mentioned that the EA is trying to pitch business from you, we assume that this EA is sourcing foreign candidates to be placed with jobs in Singapore and that xxxx Recruitment Agency is based in Malaysia. We would like to share with you that foreigners who intend to conduct EA work in Singapore of not more than 30 days within a continuous period of 6 months may be exempted if they register with MOM under a special scheme. Otherwise, any foreigner including those representing EAs based outside of Singapore who intends to conduct any EA work here will need to be licensed or registered under a licensed EA.
3 We have taken note of your feedback. Was there any other correspondence with the EA, and would you be able to provide us with more details (i.e name of the person/middleman that may have conducted EA related works for xxxx Recruitment Agency in Singapore, any Singapore’s operating address, and any other supporting documents such as name card/ contracts/advertising materials) so that we may better assess the information?
4 Last but not least, we would appreciate greatly if you could provide us with your contact details in order for us to contact you for further details if necessary? Please be assured that all information provided to us will be kept strictly confidential.
5 Thank you and regards.
