A new rule that makes it compulsory for many employers to post vacancies in the free national jobs portal Jobs Bank has made it one of the biggest players in the job site space in less than a month.

It now has more than 50,000 jobs for Singaporeans up for grabs. More than two in three of these are for professionals, managers and executives (PMEs), said the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).

A check on the website, www.jobsbank.gov.sg, yesterday evening showed that there are more than 54,000 vacancies.

Online recruitment site JobStreet, which claims to be No. 1 here, had over 53,000 at the same time.
