A lot of people in today’s working world would never have even considered relocating cities, let alone relocating abroad, because they are simply comfortable with their nonchalant day-to-day routine.

With the 10 years of Barrington James in our Singapore office paired with the success we have had, we are looking for the next generation of recruiters to join the team… So I’m going to talk you through a few reasons why this relocation, could be the best career step you ever make for not only your career but also, for your quality of life…

The quality of life in Singapore is very much of a high standard, and not only because it was voted to have the lowest crime rate in the world, and therefore is the safest place to live globally (compared to other cities, in which you’re clutching your briefcase, in the hope that you won’t get robbed that day). It has been stated that the experience of living in Singapore is different from any other country due to its extremely progressive and fast-paced nature. It is a country which always looks to be a part of the developing world, often known as ‘Today’s city’.

Singapore has been at the forefront of many aspects of modern life, both in an economical and developmental sense. They have been ranked first worldwide for the ease of doing business with for the last 7 years consecutively by the World Bank, having the world’s best professional workforce, and also being ranked the fourth leading financial centre of the world, with 1 in 6 people in Singapore now being millionaires, making 17% of the population of Singapore being worth over 7 figures!

Another massive benefit of living in Singapore is the tax bracket they operate in. Singapore has one of the lowest effective tax rates in the world, in which you can actually earn $320,000 per year equating to £184,498.50 in the UK, and you’ll only be taxed 20% in comparison to the UK, in which you’d be taxed 45% on the same amount. This tax bracket only improves the quality of life in Singapore further, because honestly, just think about all the extra money you’d have to spend on those dream cars and houses in Singapore that for so long you’ve been attempting to save up for in the UK!

As well as benefitting from an abundance of economic benefits within the country, Singapore also has the 6th best healthcare system globally, voted by World Health Organisation. This has subsequently given Singapore one of the world’s highest life expectancy at 83.1 years old, which essentially means you have a longer time on this planet to relish in the non-stop, all year round, 30°C climate Singapore has to offer. So, if you are an individual who absolutely loves a BBQ, but because of the delightful British weather all year round (rain, rain and more rain), you only have the opportunity to have one on the one sunny day of the year… Singapore could be the place for you!

On the subject of food, if you are a ‘self-confessed foodie’, this is an absolutely ideal opportunity to broaden your palette (and waistline), as in Singapore literature, food is actually viewed as a national pastime. Singapore has such a plethora of cuisines that you can experience instead of just having the same old jacket potato for dinner every night, as in Singapore, food is viewed as a way to unify cultural differences to essentially bring people together.

So essentially, if you are wanting a significantly increased chance of becoming a millionaire, a fully functioning and efficient healthcare system ensuring you live longer, experience more sun and of course, foods, and to just live in a safe, progressive and within an unparalleled culture; Singapore is the place for you.
