About Singapore Global Network

The Singapore Global Network (SGN) is a division in the Economic Development Board tasked to re-energise Singapore’s efforts in building a strong and extensive ecosystem of overseas Family, Friends, Fans (3F) for Singapore. SGN leads the Whole-Of-Government effort to coordinate across agencies and strengthen our collective networks whose skills, affinity and influence could help build linkages to global business and talent communities, and enhance the international mindshare of Singapore as a leading globally-connected city.


The Network and Partnership Development team handles SGN’s international operations through the Singapore office, as well as overseas offices in Australia, China, United Kingdom and the United States.


We are currently hiring for a few roles in the Network and Partnership Development team, based in the Singapore office.

The key deliverables of each role will be to expand and engage SGN’s networks in an assigned geography and cultivate in-market partners to expand SGN’s engagement capacity and capability. The officer may be considered for an overseas posting should a suitable position become available and if it aligns with the officer’s interest.


Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Identify opportunities to grow SGN’s networks and develop partnerships to engage our overseas Singaporeans, Friends and Fans of Singapore as potential talent, connectors and advocates for Singapore.
  • Develop and implement online and offline engagement initiatives with networks/partners that best achieve SGN’s outcomes. For example: dialogues, forums, campaigns, webinars, networking events etc.
  • Grow and cultivate a network of multipliers and partners and forge tactical collaborations with them in line with SGN’s mandate.
  • Collaborate with Singapore Government agencies operating in-market to optimise ground assets for greater whole-of-Government efficiency and impact.
  • Build a vibrant community around overseas Singaporeans, Friends and Fans of Singapore, using digital and offline modes, to maximise engagement and meet business outcomes.
  • Deliver community insights to inform SGN’s strategy development and operational planning.



  • A university degree in any discipline with at least three years of working experience in business/partnership development, marketing or community building.
  • Strong writing and verbal communication skills as well as analytical and data literacy to translate insights and data into actionable plans.
  • Enthusiastic about building relationships and managing stakeholders.
  • Exceptional organisational and project management skills, able to manage multiple complex projects concurrently.
  • Energetic, sociable, empathetic and comfortable to engage a varied profile and sizes of audience.
  • Flexible with ability to work independently and in cross-functional teams.
  • For some geographical coverage, prior experience operating overseas and/or strong bilingual capabilities and fluency in a foreign language will be an advantage to aid in liaising with overseas counterparts and/or engaging customers.
  • Open to travel and relocation.
  • Singaporean.
