Top 5 Work From Home Jobs In Singapore

Posted on: 2021-06-17

The Work From Home (WFM) and Home-Based Learning (HBL) arrangement have been a huge part of many Singaporeans’ lives during the past year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, companies that are in the “non-essential” industries were asked to shut down their offices - almost 70% of Singapore’s working class (all industries except Healthcare, F&B, Transport and Banks) were required to WFH during the circuit breaker and phase 2 heightened alert period.

With the safe distancing restriction still in place, most companies will be offering WFH jobs to their new employees. As such, Singaporeans must get used to the remote work lifestyle as it will become the “new normal” in our country.

Without further ado, let’s move on to the Top 5 WFH Jobs In Singapore.

Weblink Admin Jobs

Repetitive Work


Ever heard of the phrase “muscle memory”? It’s a term used to describe movements/procedures that have become “automatic (second nature)” due to constant repetitions of the same task over time. Admin duties are simple without many variations. The data entry procedures are pretty much the same for all excel sheets or word documents (only some changes in the formulas and formatting). All that is required of an admin worker is to input the data into the respective cells. With sufficient practice, even a secondary school graduate can perform admin duties proficiently.


Be Careful


Do be extremely careful when inputting data. Some arithmetic or typing errors can affect the entire database of the company. When that happens, the administrative staff can expect himself/herself an earful from the boss or superior. The moral of the story: BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL. Check all the data carefully before keying it into the company’s database.


Ideal For Moms


Stay-Home-Mums who wants to spend time with their kids and earn some income should try applying for admin jobs. It can greatly boost your family’s income and provide for your kids.


Job Description


Administrative workers manage the database of the company. They are the ones who will organise the data and make sure all data are imputed accurately.

Administrative workers may need to do some planning duties. For example, an administrative assistant can be asked to organise company events - like sorting the boss’s timetable, planning for the company retreat, and scheduling client appointments. For smaller companies, the admin assistant may be required to liaise with vendors.

Administrative jobs cover a wide scope which is highly dependent on the recruiting company’s requirement. The company requirements are written in the “job description” section of the recruitment advertisement. Do check the job scope carefully because some admin jobs may need you to do some accounting work which may fall outside your ability.
