2nd Phase of Futuremakers' First Job Youth Employment and Subsidy Programme

To support youth employment and help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) weather the difficult time, St. James’ Settlement and Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited jointly introduced the “Futuremakers’ First Job Youth Employment and Subsidy Programme” in 2020. The programme encouraged SMEs to provide full time or short-term job opportunities for graduates by subsidising half of the wages of the youths employed. In 2021, the Standard Chartered Foundation donated another HK$5 million to launch the second phase of the programme. The maximum amount of subsidy is raised and participants will be guaranteed job interview opportunities under the new phase. SMEs would be able to identify suitable talents through the job matching platform, while Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE), post-secondary and university graduates will be able to find job opportunities that suit their interests and abilities. Corporates will receive half of the wages of each youth hired or up to HK$39,000 each over a 6-month period. Participating youths will also be provided with training in job-seeking skills and employment as well as guaranteed interview opportunities within two weeks of joining the programme. The second phase of the programme is now accepting applications from 2019, 2020 or 2021 graduates. For more details, please visit the programme's website. If you have any enquiries, please call 2596 2569 or e-mail futuremakers.enquiry@sjs.org.hk.
