Created and funded by a charitable trust, PROcruit C will collaborate with over 100 employers from various sectors to create 400 trainee positions for degree or sub-degree first-time jobseekers. As one of the Industry Convenors of the programme, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) will boost the technology talent pool in Hong Kong by creating at least 75 entry-level career opportunities.

Specifically, HKSTP drives talent development in the “Technology for Good” track. The three other tracks in the Programme are “Creativity for Good”, “Business for Good”, and “Healthcare for Good”. The goal of the programme is to enable fresh graduates seeking new jobs to upskill themselves, embark on meaningful careers, and make a positive impact on society.

The CEO of HKSTP stated that as one of the industry convenors in PROcruit C, the Park will give young graduates an opportunity to grow and devote themselves to changing the world and bringing social good with their passion for technology.

This highlights HKSTP’s commitment to accelerating the growth of Hong Kong’s Innovation and Technology (I&T) ecosystem through fuelling the talent pool together with various stakeholders in the community.

The “Technology for Good” track will see a degree or sub-degree first-time job seekers receive entry-level I&T job opportunities across roles including Product Marketing Trainee, Trainee Designer and Project Management Trainee. Successful applicants will immerse themselves in the Science Park ecosystem and receive industry-specific training and continuous coaching, followed by a 12-month traineeship at participating Science Park companies under the Programme.

Graduates from sub-degree or degree programmes, and with Hong Kong resident status, are eligible to apply. Successful applicants are required to be unemployed at the moment of application and have fewer than three months of full-time consecutive employment experience.

The application for the first cohort of PROcruit C is now open and will close on 3 January 2021. The training is set to begin in February 2021, with the traineeships commencing in March.  More information on PROCruitC can be found on the website.
