Covid-19: 3 Hottest Frontline Jobs in Singapore

Posted on: 2021-05-07

According to an article on Channel News Asia, more than 20,000 Singaporeans lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than half of the retrenched workers were 55 years old and above.

In light of such a bad job market, jobless Singaporeans have to turn to the gig economy for economic opportunities. For the older Singaporeans who experience difficulty in re-employment, it is advisable to focus on COVID-19 jobs which pay rather well considering the simplicity of the job.


Is it Safe?


Certainly, there is no point in earning money if you can’t even live long enough to spend it. Many job seekers may avoid the frontline jobs due to the perceived “high risk” involved. Job seekers fear that interacting with a large number of people everyday may increase their chances of COVID infection. However, the truth is COVID-19 jobs are rather safe.

The Singapore Government has ordered all COVID-19 temperature screeners to maintain a 2m distance when screening visitor's temperature. Furthermore, temperature screeners do not need to use hand thermometers anymore. The standing infrared temperature screening machine, which is placed at a distance from the temperature screener, is used to check visitor's temperature. Minimum physical interaction is kept at all times.

For those who want to try higher risk jobs like “vaccination assistant”, you are also in good hands. The Ministry of Health has ordered all vaccination assistants to be issued Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The PPE lowers the chances of infection by 80%. Be rest assured that the Singapore government has devised the necessary protective measures to ensure the security of frontline workers.

Without further ado, let’s move on to the job details of the 3 hottest Frontline Jobs in Singapore.
