The Ministry of Health’s (MOH) vision is to champion a healthy nation with our people – to live well, live long and with peace of mind. As an open country constantly exposed to an interconnected world, Singapore faces complex issues in public healthcare. MOH constantly grapples with new challenges brought on by an increasingly globalised world, a rapidly ageing population and rising expectations. MOH’s responses to these challenges include preventing and managing the outbreak of diseases such as SARS and Influenza A (H1N1), designing a healthcare system that delivers care in an integrated and effective manner, growing the capacity and capabilities within the sector, and managing healthcare inflation.

As an MOH officer, you will be involved in formulating and implementing policies that guide Singapore’s healthcare ecosystem. You will work alongside a team with varied skills and backgrounds, but with the common goals of (i) promoting good health and reducing illnesses; (ii) ensuring that Singaporeans have access to good and affordable healthcare; and (iii) pursuing medical excellence. Your work will have far-reaching impact on the health and lives of Singaporeans.


You are part of the Data Protection Office, within the Data Governance Division, which formulates, advises and facilitates the implementation of data protection policies for the healthcare sector in close consultation with stakeholders in MOH, public agencies, public healthcare institutions as well as other data-handling organisations.  You will review and draft policies to address stakeholders' feedback and inputs to ensure policies are practical and operationally sustainable, and promote understanding of data protection policies to data protection counterparts, staff and representatives of healthcare institutions.  You will also manage reported data breach incidents by coordinating containment actions and monitoring follow-ups with all relevant parties and authorities.   You will study data security risks, compliance gaps and patterns of data breach incidents to derive insights for formulating data protection policies which addresses these challenges.


  • Preferably with at least 2-3 years' relevant experience either in the public sector or in a similar data protection role in any organisation
  • Possess good critical thinking, data analysis and problem-solving skills
  • Good writing and communication skills
