Boosts employment by increasing temporary jobs (Development Bureau)

The Chief Executive has announced earlier a series of measures on job retention, job creation and job advancement under the Anti-epidemic Fund. It is suggested to create around 30000 time-limited jobs in the public and private sectors in the coming two years to reduce unemployment, the situation of which has been worsened owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. The Development Bureau and departments under it are taking proactive actions to facilitate and implement these measures by providing about 4700 temporary jobs of a wide variety in the times to come. Provide 4700 temporary jobs These temporary jobs cover various areas and people with different skills and academic qualifications, including professionals and technical and back-office support officers, will be eligible. Fresh graduates can also apply for internship programmes on building surveying, urban planning, estate surveying, land surveying and engineering, etc. Of the 4700 new job openings, more than 530 are provided by the government while 4100 and more are openings from private organisations. Some of the job openings will be in place in three months progressively. Digitailise the E&M assets Among these openings, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department plans to recruit 1200 temporary staff with service terms of up to 18 months. Half of the employees will be responsible for cleaning electrical and mechanical (E&M) systems at several thousand governmental buildings, while the other half will assist in the digitalization of E&M assets. Inspect drainage pipes Besides, the Buildings Department will appoint consultancy firms to inspect drainage pipes at the external walls of over 20000 targeted private domestic and composite buildings in Hong Kong. The appointed firms will have to recruit extra manpower and hence are expected to create more than 400 job openings. Improve buildings safety The Buildings Department will also recruit 120 short-term staff whose job duties include: speeding up the processing of drainage repair order yet to be complied with and cases of misconnection of drainage; organising public educational and promotional activities, etc. Amid the COVID-19 epidemic, the government aims to add momentum to the labour market by increasing short-term job openings for people from all walks of life, from professionals, technical and supporting officers to fresh graduates.

Why do you need to take the CRE?

Almost every university graduate is advised to sit for the Common Recruitment Examination (CRE). But why? What is the reason for taking the examination? In fact, applicants for civil service posts at degree or professional level are required to obtain either Level 2 or Level 1 in the Use of English (UE) and Use of Chinese (UC) papers of the CRE for meeting the language proficiency requirements as stipulated by individual recruiting departments / grades.Please note that, however, specific requirements of individual recruiting departments / grades on the UE and UC papers will be set out in the relevant recruitment advertisements. Applicants for some posts at degree or professional level are also required to obtain a Pass in the Aptitude Test paper in addition to the requisite results in the UE and UC papers.Persons who wish to apply for civil service posts at degree or professional level should first obtain the requisite CRE results unless otherwise specified in the relevant recruitment advertisements.  Applicants may choose to attempt all, any, or any combination of the papers.  The CRE is independent of the recruitment process for any civil service post.  Applications for individual civil service posts should be made to the recruiting departments / grades direct.  The attainment of the requisite CRE results, however, does not imply that a candidate has fully met the entry requirements of any civil service post at degree or professional level. Vetting of academic or professional qualifications will be carried out by the recruiting departments / grades which may also conduct separate examinations and interviews.You may also contact the Civil Service Examinations Unit by phone at 2537 6429, by e-mail to csbcseu@csb.gov.hk, or by post to Room 718, 7/F, West Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong for relevant details.

How a Customs Officer was trained!

I am always impressed by people who have the will to overcome obstacles and take on personal challenges. Earlier I watched a video on the internet about Mr Ng, a Customs Officer, on his journey of overcoming challenges. To become a Customs Officer one has to pass through quite a few physical tests. To get himself best prepared for the tests, Officer Ng did thorough research on the requirements and implemented a tailored training programme. He was not particularly good at distance running at the beginning. Then he adopted a challenging training schedule of running 5km each day. “Sometimes I run despite raining.” Neither the hot sun nor rain has ever stopped him from running towards his goal.Chance favours the prepared mind. Be well prepared to boost your faith and increase the chance of success. Every challenge is a chance for a personal breakthrough.[Know more about the challenges of Custom Officer] Contributing Editor: Sophie

Are you eligible for the CRE and BLNST?

Government jobs have always been popular, yet some of them require the candidates to sit for the Common Recruitment Examination (CRE) and Basic Law and National Security Law Test (BLNST). So what are the eligibilities for applying the CRE and BLNST?>>>Must be a holder of a Bachelor’s Degree or will attain one in next academic yearPlease note that, however, an Associate Degree does not count. Applicants who fall into neither of the above two categories should hold a qualification that meets the entry requirements on professional qualifications for civil service degree or professional posts.If you are a registered student of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) Qualification Programme, you may apply to sit for the CRE and BLNST even if you do not possess a degree since the said qualification is accepted for applying for the post of Assistant Assessor.However, if you are a registered social worker under the Social Workers Registration Ordinance but do not possess a degree, you are not eligible for sitting for the CRE and BLNST since the entry requirements for the post of Assistant Social Work Officer include both a professional qualification and a relevant degree.Before applying for the CRE and BLNST, you are advised to check from the CSB website and with the recruiting departments concerned to confirm whether the qualification you are holding is accepted for appointment to the relevant civil service degree / professional post(s). You may also contact the Civil Service Examinations Unit by phone at 2537 6429, by e-mail to csbcseu@csb.gov.hk, or by post to Room 718, 7/F, West Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong for relevant details.

Learn from serving ambulancemen on preparing for interview and fitness test

01 | Pre-interview Practice Self-confidence is essential to every success; so what can you do to boost your confidence? Ambulancewoman Chan Ka Yee advised, “Before attending the interview, I would set up some mock-up questions that the interviewer may ask to make sure I could provide answers fluently.” She also reminded interviewees to keep calm when answering the questions. Smiles and gestures can impress the interviewers. One can practice at home in front of a mirror.02 | Keep Training The physical fitness test is generally regarded as the most difficult part of the selection process.  Ambulanceman Yip Chun Luen recalled that he used to visit the gym thrice a week to train himself up for specific physical fitness test requirements. 03 | Collection of Information Ambulancewoman Chan Ka Yee said, “You need to have a certain understanding of the responsibilities of an Ambulanceman to show your passion and dedication for the job.  That would help you to have a better chance of getting an offer.” She would visit bookstores, libraries and website of the Fire Service Department for relevant information before the written test. Interviewees should also pay attention to local and international news during their preparation. For people who want to be an Ambulanceman, their experiences must be of great value!
