Singapore FinTech Association launches jobs portal
TO HELP jobseekers and employers in the fintech space, the Singapore FinTech Association on Monday launched a jobs and grants portal, which currently lists over 500 vacancies across six categories – information technology, business development, data analytics, management and business, accounting and finance, and marketing and public relations.
The portal also highlights grants available and relevant training opportunities in the fintech sector. In addition, it features various schemes available under the SGUnited Traineeships and Skills programmes.
"Amid the uncertainties and disruption from Covid-19, the FinTech sector in Singapore has shown resilience and is poised to bounce back quickly post-pandemic as financial institutions accelerate their digital transformation journey and as more customers adopt digital solutions," the association said in a media statement on Monday.
Citing a June 2020 report by Boston Consulting Group, the association highlighted that investments in Singapore-based fintech firms rose to S$650 million, representing a 19 per cent increase in the first half of the year.
Second Minister for Finance and Education Indranee Rajah, who witnessed the portal's launch, stressed fintech's role in digital acceleration.
"Despite current challenges, FinTech has an essential role in ensuring digital acceleration for stakeholders both in and beyond the financial industry. We should not miss this once-in-a-generation chance to transform, so that Singapore businesses can emerge stronger in the post-Covid-19 world, and remain viable for years to come," she said.
