Part time jobs in Singapore

Careerjet SG
Before browsing through individual online job sites or classifieds ads, you may want to shortcut by using job aggregation web sites. These sites basically crawls the web like google does and brings jobs into a search database for you to search centrally. is one of them. To look for part-time job:
2) In the main manu without entering anything in what/where boxes, click Find button.
3) A list of all jobs published in Singapore will come. Now you can filter this jobs by using Contract type on the left column. You can filter part time or temporary. If you are looking for a specific job, simply filter to part-time and write the keyword (i.e. receptionist) in the search box and press Find.

This is another job aggregation site. You can look for jobs here which looks at advertised jobs and stores them in a centralized database. Simply enter part-time in search box and click find at

Printed Newspaper Classifieds Ads
I think classifieds ads in printed news papers such as The Straits Times and The New Paper are still the best places to take a look at first if you are looking for a job. You do not need to pay for all of them. Just head to the nearest library where you can find all the local newspapers.

JobStreet has grown to become one of the leading Internet Recruitment websites in the Asia-Pacific since it was launched in 1995. It is one of the most popular job site in Singapore (most popular according to them) and have a Part Time Jobs in Singapore listing.

STJobs (previously ST701 Jobs which was awarded ‘Best Recruitment Site’ by Marketing Magazine
in the 2011 Digital Media of the Year survey) has a Temporary / Part Time Jobs section listing many jobs.  The site offers several filter options as well as resume upload facilities which would make life easier to meet your dream part-time jobs.

Gumtree Singapore
Gumtree, an extensive network of online classifieds and community websites, has local noticeboards that now spans 76 cities across 11 countries. And one of these countries is Singapore. Gumtree Singapore has a section under jobs named Part time, evening, weekend jobs and work opportunities in Singapore which has a very busy listing of part time or weekend jobs in Singapore.

You can also leave "part-time job wanted" ads in this site which is a good way of looking for job id you are really not actively searching the web.

Craigslist Singapore
Craigslist, a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing, personals, for sale, items wanted, services, community, gigs, resumes, and discussion forums, is one of the oldest in the web which has started operation in 1995. It has a local Singapore web site named craiglist sg and this web site has a part time job section. Although a significant number of these advertisements are looking for female escorts, there are a lot of other part-time jobs which can be suitable for your needs.

Singapore part-time jobs is a small and simple site which lists a few good jobs to take a look at.
