Salary for trainee bank officer in Singapore
Posted on 2004-09-29
My friend is a fresh graduate from Sydney (Bachelor of Business degree completed this December) with some experience (but not banking related). She has got an offer from OCBC Bank in Singapore with the starting salary of 2,155 SGD per month (and no relocation expense or initial establishment allowance). She will first work as a trainee bank officer with 6 months probation period before being promoted to Associate Relationships Manager.
Is that a reasonable level of salary, and what is the average monthly living expense there for a single person like her? Any real experience will be appreciated since I have found some salary evaluation websites but the information seems vague.
Thanks very much.
