About Professional Services Programme Office

You will be part of an inter-agency office set up by the Economic Development Board (EDB), Ministry of Law (MinLaw), Ministry of Finance (MOF) and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to develop and promote high growth areas which intersect legal, accounting and financial services.

This unique set-up leverages the capabilities and functions of the various organisations to achieve industry development objectives at a broader scale.

It can range from studying identified practice areas to understand the demand drivers for legal, accounting and financial services, to engaging local and top international professional services firms to develop strategic expertise to capture the growing opportunities in Asia, to developing and executing initiatives to promote these services. 

As an integral member in the Programme Office, you would work closely with other agencies such as SPRING Singapore and the Singapore Accountancy Commission as well as industry stakeholders in the legal accounting and financial services sectors to achieve the desired objectives.

The team is based at the EDB office.
