The Public Service Division has announced hikes in the monthly starting salaries of fresh graduates employed under its civil service schemes. The announcement is made in a press released dated yesterday and reported in the media today.
I took a look at the press release.
The biggest increase is found in the engineering profession scheme – $620. Perhaps this is an indication that engineers have been very underpaid in the past?
These are the latest salary information of the various civil service schemes:
- Management Executive Scheme (Good Honours)
from $2,410 to $2,800 (increase of $390)
- Management Executive Scheme (Pass Degree)
from $2,180 to $2,350 (increase of $170)
- Accounting Profession Service (Good Honours)
from $2,640 to $2,910 (increase of $270)
- Economist Service (Good Honours)
from $2,850 to $3,320 (increase of $470)
- Education Service (Good Honours)
from $2,560 to $2,820 (increase of $260)
- Education Service (Pass Degree)
from $2,240 to $2,470 (increase of $230)
- Engineering Profession Scheme (Good Honours)
from $2,570 to $3,190 (increase of $620)
- Home Affairs Uniformed Services (Good Honours)
from $2,630 to $2,870 (increase of $240)
- Home Affairs Uniformed Services (Pass Degree)
from $2,260 to $2,570 (increase of $310)
- Foreign Service (Good Honours)
from $2,760 to $3,320 (increase of $560)
- Statistician Service (Good Honours)
from $2,650 to $2,990 (increase of $340)
“The actual salary offered to recruits will take into consideration their work experience, educational qualifications, National Service and relevant skills.”
Question: For those services without a salary indication for “Pass Degree”, does it mean they are not interested in hiring people without “Good Honours”?
