In order to conduct corporate planning and launch the chain of pharmacies for NTUC Healthcare, Seah was seconded to the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC).

Between 1994 and 1996, Seah resigned from NTUC and joined the engineering and piling company Sum Cheong Corporation.

In the general elections of 2011 and 2015, when the PAP team faced opposition from the National Solidarity Party and the Workers' Party, respectively, Seah was re-elected in the Marine Parade Group GRC.

From October 2011 to January 2016, Seah served as deputy speaker in the House of Representatives.
