Programme Overview

The Singapore Public Service offers an attractive career proposition for those who seek to make a difference in service of Singapore and Singaporeans.

If you take up a public service leadership career, we will invest in your development so that you can lead effectively in the Public Service, for today and tomorrow. A key feature of pursuing a public service leadership career is the opportunity for you to undergo structured job postings across different public agencies, to expose you to critical job experiences and key issues facing Government. 

Here are some areas you could contribute to, across the key sectors of Government:
