Manufacturing, Electronic Sectors Staffing Services in 2022

In 2021, the manufacturing sector in Singapore grew by 12.8 per cent and was one of the best performing sectors. All through 2022, the manufacturing sector is expected to enjoy a positive business outlook with higher levels of production. Of these, the electronics cluster has the most optimistic outlook, with robust demand expected from the 5G market, cloud services and data centres.

In anticipation of the higher levels of production, a majority of manufacturers will require a larger workforce. Technicians, engineers and managers with specialist skills will be highly sought after. Consequently, competitive remuneration packages, employee benefits and career progression opportunities will be increasingly important to attract and retain talents.

At Achieve Group, we have experienced engineering and managerial talents who are specialised in the disciplines needed to support the growth in the manufacturing sector.

As a longstanding recruitment agency, our manufacturing search and selection team has the capability to carry out precise skills-based targeting in attracting specialist candidates and our consultants are adept in facilitating accurate profiling to bring onboard the talents that manufacturing companies need to support the organisation’s growth.
