According to data from job site Indeed, job seekers across the country are showing greater interest in working remotely amid the COVID-19 crisis. Job seekers are increasingly searching for terms like ‘remote’, ‘work from home’ and related phrases. Searches for remote work have also increased by 183 percent, as a share of all searches on Indeed Singapore, compared with its January and February average. 

Commenting on the trend, Callam Pickering, APAC Economist at Indeed said, “With Singaporeans in self-isolation in response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the ability to work from home has never been more desirable. Our data shows that COVID-19 has accelerated an existing trend towards flexibility and remote work. 

Jobs that can be performed remotely appear more resistant to economic disruption, at least in the case of a pandemic, which may make these jobs more appealing to future job seekers.” 

Jobseekers searching for remote work have driven sharp month-on-month increases in specific searches for specific job titles, with content writer and telemarketer topping the list, followed by administrative support, business facilitation and content production roles. 

  1. Content writer
  2. Telemarketer 
  3. Administration Executive
