What We Do 

Our team builds strategies for the Singapore economy’s transformation and development in a rapidly evolving world. Here are some of the questions we work with our stakeholders to answer: 


  • How can we strengthen our engines of growth? 

  • How do we ensure the relevance of economic development to Singaporean businesses and workers?

  • How should we allocate resources given our tight resources constraints? 


We also lead the corporate planning process for the MTI (Firefly) family.  


  • We set goals and priorities for the Firefly family. 

  • We use these goals and priorities to facilitate alignment between the different agencies in the family; 


Who we are looking for 

We are looking for someone who can: 

  • Communicate clearly in both written and verbal form; 

  • Conduct independent research in a variety of business / economic domains; 

  • Develop creative strategies and plans to help a complex system navigate an uncertain and fast-changing future; 

  • Manage relationships and market ideas across a variety of stakeholders; 

  • Think strategically about business and economic issues. 


We also appreciate basic quantitative skills, or experience in how government policies affect the environment for businesses. 


Our Employee Value Proposition 


We think this role will help to grow professionals who are interested in solving macro-level and “wicked” problems. We believe this is a unique opportunity to add important strategic and generalist skillsets to specialist experience. You will have a special vantage point of the Singapore economy and have an important role in shaping policies at a pivotal time for the nation.
