At the Ministry of Defence, our mission is to enhance Singapore's peace and security through deterrence and diplomacy, and should these fail, to secure a swift and decisive victory over the aggressor. Our Defence Executive Officers (DXOs), alongside their military counterparts, play critical roles in preserving Singapore's sovereignty and stability.

You monitor and analyse media coverage and discussions on MINDEF/SAF and notable security- and defence-related issues across all traditional and online media platforms. On this, you identify significant conversations that have potential repercussions on the image and reputation of MINDEF/SAF and conduct preliminary risk assessment when necessary. You also deliver regular media summaries and incident-related reports to facilitate decision-making and strategic communications efforts. Your challenge lies in scanning the wide spectrum of print, broadcast, online and social media to sieve out relevant data that impacts the organisation, and translating data into useful information and knowledge.

You must have a tertiary qualification, preferably in communications or political science, with a good understanding of the media landscape and an interest in political, defence and security developments in Singapore and the region. Proficiency in Microsoft Office applications and a good command of spoken and written English is essential. You must be able to think on your feet in times of crisis and have a good sharp mind. Having 1 year’ prior work experience in the media monitoring and analytics industry, and being familiar with the common social media platforms is advantageous. Proficiency in a vernacular language would also be advantageous. Do note that this position requires you to work at odd hours on very short notice. You will also be required to perform rotational weekly duties, up to twice a month. Appointment will be commensurate with your experience.
