Corporate Finance & Consumer Department
Organisation Development & Communications Department
As a former marketer in financial services, I was first drawn to the challenge of working on the world’s largest FinTech festival that MAS organises. I joined MAS in 2018, and haven’t looked back since! At MAS, I have had opportunities to stretch myself in new areas of work, as part of our FinTech and Innovation Group, and my current department. Today, I get to help shape MAS as a great place to work at, through our organisation development and corporate planning work.

Financial Centre Development Department
MAS has given me opportunities to hone my competency through taking on different roles. In my previous roles in the Financial Supervision Group, I supervised a wide range of financial institutions. One of the highlights was to represent MAS in international forums on accounting and auditing standard setting. The appointment allowed me to contribute to the international supervisory community, enhance my specialist skills in accounting and develop public policy making skill. In my current role, I am developing diverse skillsets such as business development and marketing, while contributing to MAS’ growth strategies for the financial sector.
After having been in the banking industry for a few years, I was eager to find a job that would allow me to take on more meaningful work – work that has the potential to better the lives of the people around me. The work we do at MAS is so diverse and meaningful, and there are so many opportunities to learn new things, which is great motivation for clocking into office every day. My advice for mid-career folks who are interested in joining MAS - There is no lack of things to learn as long as you are willing and driven.
