You need to think about what you want to do well in advance of your work visa expiring as once this has happened you are no longer eligible to work in Singapore.  Please contact your recruitment consultant at least two months before your work visa expires.

Q: How do I report a workplace injury or hazard?
A:
All work-related injuries and incidents, no matter how minor, must be reported to both Morgan McKinley and your supervisor as soon as possible.

The length of your assignment will be agreed between your Morgan McKinley consultant and the employer before you start.  It is common for assignments to be continually extended depending on the type of work you are doing.  Don't be put off by an initial short-term role, it could last much longer!
