Hear from Our People
“Life in MOF is a vibrant and exhilarating journey of growth.”
As an Associate in Security & Resilience Programmes, Roxanne’s key responsibilities include stakeholder management and the co-creation, evaluation and financing of policies and programmes related to the arts, sports and community sectors.
Work & Play Hard Together!
“Life in MOF has brought many enjoyable moments. I started working in MOF during the COVID-19 period, where work-from-home was de rigeur, yet my colleagues have been incredibly welcoming — from Zoom lunches to online game sessions, it was as if we were interacting in the office!
As a young policy officer, there is a steep learning curve in MOF. The work is not only fast-paced but requires one to have analytical breadth and depth in navigating line-ministry and centre-of-government concerns. Nevertheless, MOF has provided many learning opportunities to help me understand the complex considerations in shaping and implementing policies. While intellectually stretched at MOF, I am grateful for supportive mentors and supervisors who helped create a constructive learning environment. MOF built my resilience and grit and alongside driven and motivated colleagues, I am energised to take each work challenge with gusto!”
“Work in MOF is dynamic and nurturing.”
As an Associate in Economic Programmes, Emmalene’s key responsibilities included analysing the fiscal/economic costs of measures related to climate mitigation and financing and exploring new ways of funding, e.g. through partnerships with industry, or other financing instruments.
Dynamic Work Life of an MOFer
“In MOF, we need to look at issues from a broad range of perspectives as we are the central ministry that brings agencies and stakeholders together. Things can be quite fast-paced, especially in the lead-up to key announcements. As a centre-of-government, we get to see and appreciate how each policy fits into the overall big picture. When things get intense, teamwork is especially crucial – and I’m thankful that MOF has a strong teamwork culture!
The people in MOF are approachable and nurturing, which is very valuable for someone new to the workplace. MOF colleagues genuinely care about your well-being beyond work, which is really heartening!”
Jen Kiat’s Story
“Work in MOF is fast-paced and meaningful.”
As an Associate in the Economics Programmes, and as a deskhead, Jen Kiat oversees the MOF and Customs portfolios, and his day-to-day work responsibilities include managing Customs policy issues and evaluating MOF’s resourcing needs. As a Budget Directorate Representative, Jen Kiat also coordinates Budget-related work within his directorate during the Budget seasons.
Glimpse of Growing Professionally, Serving the Nation
“The most rewarding part about my job is that it allows me to make a positive difference to fellow Singaporeans through policy work and the management of public finance. Besides the meaningful and challenging day-to-day work, some of my favourite moments in MOF include the organisation-wide sharing sessions and other training opportunities where I can learn and develop myself personally and professionally. Through staff engagement platforms, we are able to have dialogue sessions with our Senior Management Team, and of course, the lunch and cohesions with my work colleagues. I really appreciate the people and opportunities that come along with working in MOF!
As a former intern, I highly recommend an internship with MOF if you are exploring a career with the Public Service - Besides having good exposure to what goes into policy making and Singapore’s overall fiscal picture/strategy, you will enjoy the opportunity to interact and learn from peers and seniors who may very well become your mentors for life!”
