A national job database, the first of its kind, that aims to put Singaporeans first has yet to be launched, but it has already garnered interest from bosses and workers.

More than 1,700 employers and 9,000 job seekers have registered to use a trial version of the government job website since it was put up without fanfare last month.

A check on the website, www.jobsbank.gov.sg, also showed more than 7,000 vacancies, from security officer jobs that pay $1,500 each month, to banking and auditing jobs that pay more than $10,000 monthly.

Human resource managers said they heard about the portal by word of mouth and were drawn to it because it is free.
