As an ACCA holder, what career can I have with MOF?
All eligible job applicants will be considered for appointment. They are selected for appointment into the Civil Service based on objective criteria e.g. qualifications, work experience, job competencies, ability to do the job and other relevant job requirements, that best match the requirements of the position. As such, applicants with ACCA certification would be considered in a whole package with their other qualifications, experience and job competencies for a position.
If my degree was obtained through distance learning i.e. correspondence degree from the University of London, would that qualify me to apply for positions in the Civil Service?
Candidates with degrees obtained through distance learning, twinning programmes etc. can be considered for employment in the Civil Service, provided such qualifications are awarded by universities which are recognised or accredited by their home governments. In the case of professional qualifications, they must also be acceptable for registration by the relevant professional bodies in Singapore.
I am interested in doing my internship at the Ministry of Finance. How do I go about applying for this?
Temporary placement within Ministry of Finance is driven by the requirements and timing of the project assignments available.

Would MOF conduct cross reference should there be a candidate who is currently employed by one of the ministries or statutory board?
Yes, Ministries will conduct cross-references with the Statutory Board/Ministry when processing applications from serving Statutory Board/Civil Service officers.
Is there a list of approved universities and bodies for people applying for jobs with MOF?
Currently MOF does not maintain a list of universities and bodies that are deemed to be recognised from the Ministry's point of view. For degree programmes offered by foreign universities, the general guideline for appointment into Civil Service is that as long as the degrees are accredited by the respective home governments, they are acceptable for employment. Overseas diplomas and other local diplomas should be of similar standard and rigour as the diplomas from local polytechnics. Once foreign diploma qualifications are determined to be acceptable for diploma jobs in the Civil Service, they would be acceptable qualifications for various jobs which require polytechnic diploma as the entry qualifications. In the case of a professional qualification, it must also be acceptable for registration by relevant professional bodies in Singapore.
I am about to graduate in the later part of the year. However, the online application form requires candidates to indicate the degree classification. What should I do?
