Civil Service Salary Scales in Singapore (2015)


Considering a career with the Civil Service in Singapore?

As a civil servant, you will enjoy an “iron rice-bowl” salary that is comparable with that in the private sector. The basic monthly salary follows a set of MX pay grades that is regularly reviewed to maintain market competitiveness. Promotions, pay increment and bonuses will be linked to your work performance and deemed potential.

The Civil Service is the largest employer in Singapore, comprising about 6.5% of the resident workforce. Hence, the civil service salary scheme sets the tone for “market rate” compensations in Singapore.

Here’s the revised Civil Service salaries for the various MX pay grades in 2015.
(Last two revisions were: +5% Aug 2014, +5% Feb 2012)

Pay grade: MX9 (Superscale)
Job title: Deputy Director, Director
Salary scale: S$11,110 – S$15,280 / S$15,280 – S$17,370

Pay grade: MX10

Civil servants can also look forward to a “13th month” bonus, plus a 0.5 month at mid-year, and another variable bonus of 0.5-1 month, depending on Singapore’s economic performance for that year. That works out to be around 2-3 months bonus for the whole year. It is possible for high performers holding key positions in the Civil Service to receive more than the publicly announced bonus.
