The travel industry took a big hit this year and continues to suffer loss. Businesses new and old struggle to get through one of the worst economic downturns of our time.

After exhausting all options to prevent retrenchment, Singapore Airlines (SIA) had to come face to face with the inevitable: The group will be axing 2,400 of their 27,000 employees.

CEO Goh Choon Phong stated that letting go of 9% of the workforce is “the most agonising” decision he has made in his 30 years at the SIA Group.

More Than 100 Positions for Retrenched SIA Staffs

In response to the devastating news, EtonHouse, an international school group, issued a statement on Friday (11 Sept), offering more than 100 positions to the retrenched employees.

Interested applicants will get to decide between two career paths: teaching or administration.

For those with a passion to educate, the role lasts two years. Employees work part-time as a teaching assistant while pursuing an early childhood qualification from approved institutions.

On the other hand, administration is further broken down into parent liaisons, school management, or management in business development, communications and marketing.

On-the-job training will be provided to successful applicants, who can expect plenty of opportunities for professional development.

Confidence in Their Abilities

Apparently, EtonHouse Group founder and group managing director Ng Gim Choo is familiar with the airline.

“I am a frequent traveller of Singapore Airlines and I have always admired the professionalism of the SIA staff, the high standards of customer service and relationship building that they represent,” she told TODAYonline.

“They also have a wealth of international experience and cultural understanding that they bring to their roles.”

It wouldn’t be the first time for the Group to hire ex-SIA workers – several of those had previously taken on roles as teaching assistants. Furthermore, they have gone on to become principal and executive principal.

Salary of S$2,000 to S$3,000

The EtonHouse promises a monthly salary of S$2,000 to S$3,000 for selected candidates, including during training.

Their existing qualifications will determine the exact figure.

Mrs Ng added: “As a part of this programme and profession, they can shape the lives of future generations. We also wish to play a part in supporting our society as we fight this difficult period caused by the pandemic.”
