Q. How much can an SAP HR functional consultant with seven years of experience--six years of specific SAP experience--and who holds an MBA in HR, expect in terms of compensation?

Career advice from Kelly Chua, consultant, IT&T, Singapore, Hudson:
In the Singapore market, the SAP HR functional consultant can expect between S$5,000 (US$3,419) and S$6,500 (US$4,445) a month, excluding fixed or variable bonuses. Compensation also depends on several factors such as:

  • Regional vs. local roles
  • Banking and consulting vs. end user and non-banking environment
  • Implementation vs. support role
  • Contract vs. permanent role

Consultants at the left hand of the scale (i.e. regional role, banking and consulting environment, implementation, contract role) are likely to command the upper end of the salary range.
