Gardens by the Bay spawned from a single vision – to create a ‘City in a Garden’. We started our journey with a plot of reclaimed land and flourished into the iconic show garden it is today. Along the way, we garnered numerous accolades and drew crowds from four corners of the globe. And we couldn’t have done it without our greatest asset – people.
Through the expertise and innovation of our staff, we have been able to revolutionise conventional horticulture in an urban setting, and enthral visitors leveraging cutting-edge technologies and ideas. This has enabled us to become a world-class attraction that is committed to being sustainable and fulfilling our mission as the ‘People's Garden’.
So whether you are a budding greenhorn looking for a start or an experienced hire, there is an opportunity for you to fulfil your passion with us and embark on an exciting journey.
At Gardens by the Bay, we grow, nurture and recognise our workforce – one of our key and valued assets. We believe in recognising and rewarding our staff through various means and gestures.
We want our staff and their families to enjoy the beauty of their work at the Gardens, and have a good work-life balance as well as high quality of life. We aim to maintain and further improve our working environment for our people, through various schemes and benefits.
Various leave types, including non-statutory types like parent care leave, study leave and matrimonial leave, are provided. Staff and their dependents are covered by insurance and enjoy medical benefits. They also enjoy incentives like free access to the conservatories, as well as various Singapore tourist attractions.
Staff are also eligible for dental claims, flexible claims (for items that promote general health and well-being), and free health screenings.
With people as one of our priorities, we advocate investment in training and staff upgrade.
