First batch of SHKP colleagues in the Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme on board
14 university graduates seize the opportunity to realize their dreams
Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) fully supports the government's Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme and has led the way in enrolling 14 university graduates in the Scheme. Among property developers, SHKP has recruited by far the largest number of people for the Scheme and is one of the first employers to put it into action. After completing orientation training in Hong Kong, the graduates will report for duty in the Greater Bay Area for various SHKP projects and businesses.
The SHKP Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme has received enthusiastic support, with over 250 applications from graduates of leading local, mainland and overseas universities. After a rigorous selection process, 14 fresh graduates from local and Mainland universities rose to the top and began work today. After a week of training in Hong Kong, they will be stationed in SHKP offices in Guangzhou or Zhongshan, and will have the opportunity to work in different departments (including Construction Department, Leasing Department, and Project Management Department).
SHKP Executive Director Adam Kwok said, "Under the country’s development blueprint, the Greater Bay Area has great potential. It has a combined GDP of RMB11.5 trillion in 2020, comparable to that of countries such as Italy, Canada and South Korea, and ranks among the top 10 economies in the world. SHKP has years of experience developing different projects in major cities in the Greater Bay Area. These include Tianhui Plaza, a large scale integrated project in Guangzhou, Parc Central, which is in the heart of the Tianhe Central Business District, and several large-scale residential projects."
SHKP recently won a bid for sites adjacent to the Guangzhou South Railway Station, which is the country's busiest high-speed rail station. This project is set to benefit from its synergy with two other SHKP projects - the West Kowloon Station project in Hong Kong and the Qingsheng Station project in Nansha. Together they will play a crucial role in the ‘one-hour living circle’ in the Greater Bay Area, making the flow of people, goods and capital fast, smooth and convenient.
Adam Kwok shared three points of advice with the young graduates: (1) keep a curious mind and learn more about the country’s developments ; (2) keep learning about new skills to prepare for future job roles in the Greater Bay Area; and (3) uphold SHKP's high-quality services and reputation, and serve as ambassadors of Hong Kong in the development of the Greater Bay Area.
SHKP will provide the graduates with an orientation programme, on-the-job coaching, job rotations and all-round departmental support. Experienced staff based in the Greater Bay Area will serve as mentors to help the newcomers adapt to the life and work culture in the Greater Bay Area.
