Key Responsibilities

Connecting Citizen to Government

MCI plays an important role in public communications. From listening to citizens to explaining government policies, MCI ensures that Singaporeans are heard, connected, and engaged as citizens of Singapore.

Building a resilient and trusted cyber environment

Singapore’s Cybersecurity Strategy aims to build a trusted cyber environment, to realise the benefits of technology and secure a better future for Singaporeans. The Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI) and the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) work with government agencies and private organisations to build resilient infrastructure, create a safer cyberspace, develop a vibrant cyber ecosystem and strengthen international partnerships.

DesignSingapore Council

The DesignSingapore Council was established in 2003 to help develop the nation’s design sector. This follows from the Economic Review Committee’s report which identified the creative industry as one of the three new sectors (including education and healthcare) for economic growth. The DesignSingapore Council is part of the Ministry of Communications and Information. Developing the design sector, an important part of the creative industry, can help to enhance Singapore’s value proposition; as well as contribute to the country’s economic growth and social progress.

A career in the Singapore Government Information Service is rewarding and challenging, spanning a broad gamut of portfolios and responsibilities that are fundamental to good governance. As the government’s communications specialists, Information Officers have an important role to play in the entire value chain of governance from the formulation of policy, to its communication and delivery to the public, and the management of consequences arising from its implementation.
Information Officers will have the opportunity to work in various capacities in MCI, and be seconded to Government Ministries and Statutory Boards to help in communications of policies and programmes.

As a young officer, you will generally begin your career in MCI where you will receive formal professional and on-the-job training with rotations to divisions and affiliate attachments; or be seconded to serve in the corporate communications department in government agencies. Experienced officers may be seconded to government agencies to assume directorial positions in the public affairs/ corporate communications departments or serve as Press Secretaries to Ministers.

For Translation scholars, you will generally begin your career in the MCI Translation Department and subsequently be posted to other divisions or public agencies where your language capabilities could be tapped on or for exposure to other areas of information work. Experienced Translation scholars could also be further groomed to assume the role of government translators / interpreters.
