Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, has made quite a name as the go-to airline for affordable tickets to destinations all over the world — from Asian flights to Bangkok and Taiwan, to further destinations like Berlin and Athens.
As travellers, we recognise that black-and-yellow logo. But what is Scoot like as an employer?
For this instalment of the five-part podcast series by Workforce Singapore and MoneySmart, Vincent Fu, Head of Revenue Management, Analytics and Distribution at Scoot, gives insight into the company’s culture and business, while sharing his own career lessons.
Scoot debuted in late 2011 with just three aircraft and a handful of staff, but today, the brand is Singapore’s biggest low-cost carrier with over 2,500 employees. Fu himself first joined Scoot as a Senior Analyst in 2013. Over his years in the company, he has gained valuable exposure by moving between different teams at Scoot, before rising up to Head of Revenue Management, Analytics and Distribution.
On the culture, Fu shares the it’s very open. He recalls how he was able to go around and ask questions, right from his day one as the only scheduler at Scoot. “I find that you could go up to anyone. You could talk to the Commercial Officer, you could talk to the CEO,” he says.
He also shares that Scoot is very fast-paced — and he loves it: “I don’t think I’d be able to go to another industry. Things move so quickly here and it’s exciting. There’s no such thing as a typical day here at Scoot.”
