Following the emergence of SafeEntry ambassador job listings on an online job portal by recruitment firm Job Studio, speculation was rife about whether it meant restrictions were coming back to Singapore.
However, the recruitment firm that posted the job listings, has since clarified the situation and explained that their job listings were due to a normal staff turnover, according to Channel NewsAsia.
The recruitment firm has also changed the job titles of the “SafeEntry Ambassador” jobs to “Visitor Screener” instead, to avoid confusion in future.
The recruitment firm spoke to Channel NewsAsia and said that their job listings were not linked to any possible tightening of measures and that they were just hiring due to staff turnover.
Joseph Khor, the operations director of the recruitment firm, told CNA that they had been maintaining a pool of temperature screeners and SafeEntry ambassadors since last year.
He added that there is bound to be turnover as the job position was a temporary one, and they have also edited the job descriptions of their job listings.
Their duties include more than SafeEntry, such as frontline customer service, crowd control and registering visitors.
The recruitment firm currently deploys about 50 workers in such positions, and they post for the position from time to time to replenish their staff as there are turnovers.
