Eligibility for employment agency personnel

Employment agency (EA) personnel and key appointment holders need to meet the eligibility criteria to be registered. You can use the self-assessment tools to check a candidate's eligibility.

Each key appointment holder and employment agency (EA) personnel can only be registered to a single employment agency at any point.

All candidates are subject to prevailing eligibility criteria. Candidates must meet these minimum criteria to be considered for registration.

Note: If you are a foreigner who wants to work in an employment agency, you are required to obtain a valid work pass for professionals, which will allow you to work in that particular agency.
