What do our team members have to say?

Phebe Kwek
Assistant Manager
Financial Services Division

“Having joined POLWEL fresh out of school was a daunting thought initially since I’ve no prior experience. However, I’m glad to have had the opportunities given to me to unleash my fullest potential.

POLWEL has a creative workplace environment which facilitates a culture of innovation at work. This avenue allows me to execute my ideas and witness the impact of the changes.

I joined POLWEL as a contracted officer, before climbing into a permanent role as an executive, and now an assistant manager. As tough as my journey was, I’m grateful for my ever-supportive management team and fellow colleagues.

POLWEL offers diverse professional experience and the satisfaction of seeing the organisation grow over the years is immeasurable.”

Rachel Chia
Senior Executive, Business Support
Business & Employment Services Division

“I was engaged as a Management Support Assistant under the internship programme offered by POLWEL in 2019. I immediately felt welcomed by the entire office when I joined.

During my time here, I was exposed to a wide range of business activities undertaken by the organisation and was offered a part-time position after I completed the internship programme.

Upon graduating from University, I joined POLWEL as a contract staff before moving on to a permanent role as an executive. I am now doing something I enjoy and progressing my career here at POLWEL with the support of the management and colleagues here.

I am really thankful for all the opportunities offered to me and look forward to growing with POLWEL!”

Daniel Lim
Project Manager

“It has been more than 4 years since I joined POLWEL as an inspector to conduct enforcement and outreach activities on the ground before progressing to my current role of managing the operations of the project.

I enjoy the open communication and sharing sessions between colleagues and the management team, and truly appreciate the work-life balance.

I would like to sincerely thank POLWEL for the support and opportunities given to me. It has been an incredible and fruitful journey for me.”
