➤ The employment period of graduates recruited under 2021 Programme can be extended for a period of up to 6 months till 31 August 2022.
The Banking Talent Programme, launched by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the banking industry in 2020, will be extended to upcoming fresh graduates this year through offering six-month work opportunities and professional training. Commencing on 1 September, the 2021 Programme targets a wider spectrum of fresh graduates with a bachelor’s degree from universities, both local as well as those outside Hong Kong.
Job openings will be offered by banks, Stored Value Facilities operators, together with the HKMA. Work opportunities will be provided in areas ranging from front-line operations to back-office functions in retail and commercial banking.
A series of induction seminars as well as industry-specific training courses will be organised by the HKMA, in collaboration with The Hong Kong Academy of Finance and The Hong Kong Institute of Bankers.
Hong Kong residents graduating with a bachelor’s degree in 2021 from local universities and those outside Hong Kong may apply for the Programme. The disciplines preferred will depend on the work nature of specific jobs and the needs of participating firms.
