Marketing among the careers in Singapore where you can earn more than $10k per month

For all the carping about salaries in marketing and advertising not being what they were during the golden years, the industry has made the list of top jobs in Singapore with monthly salaries over $10,000 – according to research put together by recruitment firm Kelly Services.

A career in sales though turns out to be even more lucrative than jobs in media and marketing, according to the data.

Regional sales directors start off making $4,000 more than their counterparts in marketing. The salary at the upper limits is also significantly higher at $20,000.


However, the industry performs relatively well when comparing staff with just five to eight years of experience. Creative directors and marketing managers can earn up to $12,000 and $11,000 respectively.



Predictably, the big money lies with the more traditionally lucrative professions. For instance, lawyers with five to 10 years of experience make up to $27,000 per month.

The salary details were derived by combining expert market knowledge and data from senior recruitment professionals across the Singapore-based recruitment firms Kelly, Capita and Persol.
