Client Services, Project Management and Strategic Planning Salary Benchmarking in Singapore 2015/2016

An increased demand in digital talent across the board in Singapore from brands, agencies, consultancies and start-up means the whole salaries are on the up.

Availability of talent is still a challenge for most companies.  For example the demand for strong middleweight talent with 3-5 years’ experience definably outstrips number of people available in the market.

Other recent changes in the past 12 months are the increase in service design led digital agencies, consultancies working within digital transformation and start-ups with an agile product development methodically.  This has created a similar challenge for companies hiring, which both increases salaries for people with these specialist skills but opens up good transitional career moves for people in complimentarily aligned sectors.

The Strategy roles we refer to would be people working within digital communications or campaign planning, creative planning, consulting/transformation, digital marketing, UX Strategy.  Or people that cover a few of these disciplined. There are slight difference as to what a company might pay for people with deep skills in each are but our benchmark should give a ball park guide.
