  1. Hi Dennis,

    Your offered salary packages of S$1,800 & above and S$1,200 & above for the Premium English Language Centre Manager (CM) and Centre Assistant (CA) positions is low.

    This is considering the amount of work required in the job descriptions in addition to the number of working hours each week. Furthermore, you are looking for prior CM and CA experience in your job applicants. I would recommend a review of your minimum salary benchmark and how much more are you willing to offer them.

    Thanks.

    Cheers,
    TFS

    Like it or not, these are the typical salaries for admin type jobs. Many foreigners even with degrees are happy to accept these level of salary. In fact many employers can top up $100-$200 as monthly performance bonus to foreigners since the employers don’t need to pay CPF.

    As for working hours, it is considered very good already — only 8 hours per day inclusive of meal break (provided no hidden OT). Most jobs in Singapore require 9-10 hours. And it is still considered 5-day week even though need to work on Sat.

    In fact from an effort-to-reward basis, the Asst position is much better than the Mgr position. You only work 1/2 the hours but get 2/3 the salary.
