As a self employed expatriate, people have asked me what I find are other equally high paying part time jobs in Singapore. Here they are.
1. Being a wedding photographer.
Being a wedding photographer may not necessarily make you the highest paid freelancer in Singapore, but it will definitely pay you very well during the hours actually worked. I recommend sticking to prewedding photography if you do not have a lot of experience yet. This is because when it comes to actual day photography, you cannot miss certain moments and ask the groom and bride to repeat that action again. You are taking mostly candid shots.
On the other hand, it can be far less stressful to take prewedding photoshoots. This is because you can take the same shot multiple times to make sure that you capture just the right moment for the couple. You can make up to $1000 per 5 to 8 hours worked.
Of course, being a photographer means that you need some photography skills too!
2. Being a female escort.
If you are a female, you can consider being a social escort. While this is more controversial, the reason I know of this industry in Singapore is because there are local escorts who come to me for photography. They will then use those photos for marketing purposes for escort services.
However, despite the controversial nature of the business, being a female social escort in Singapore can be very financially rewarding. You can read more about social escorts in Singapore in this Yahoo interview with a big local Singapore agency.
I have seen escorts who come in with Chanel or Hermes bags, and those are relatively commonplace in Singapore. If you want a high paying job, you can consider being an escort… They make the most in this group of around $300 to $500 per hour.
3. Tertiary level Tutors
If you are educated at least A levels or even higher in Singapore such as being a university student or graduate, you can consider being a tertiary level tuition teacher.
This is especially the case for Maths and Economics tuition teachers in Singapore. These are highly paid individuals of $50 or more per hour.
There you go, the above are some very high paying jobs in Singapore. While they may not make you the most money in terms of absolute monthly value, they are definitely very high paying per hour worked.
