The Government is turning to headhunters to woo overseas Singaporeans back to the country.

Contact Singapore, a state outfit focused on attracting skilled foreigners, is stepping up efforts to draw overseas Singaporeans as well.

While it has done things like giving out job information to Singaporeans abroad previously, it is now going one step further by involving headhunting firms.

Contact Singapore has invited recruitment firms to come up with proposals to help overseas Singaporeans land jobs here. It is thought to be the first time it has turned to professional headhunters.
