Futuremakers' First Job youth employment and subsidy programme

To support youth employment and help SMEs weather the difficult time, St. James’ Settlement and Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited are jointly introducing the “Futuremakers’ First Job” youth employment and subsidy programme, which offers half-rate subsidy to SMEs in various sectors for providing full-time or short-term job vacancies.  Through the brand new job-matching mobile application, the programme aims at helping DSE, post-secondary and university graduates of the current year to land on a suitable job and, thus, promote youth employment.With funding of HK$5 million by the Standard Chartered Foundation, the programme offers a wage subsidy up to HK$30,000 over a period of 6 months to each enrolled SME for each youth being hired, so as to alleviate employers’ financial burden. In addition, the programme provides a 3-day pre-employment training to the young job seekers to prepare them for their first job. The programme is now open for applications. Graduates of the current year can visit the official website for more details. Enrolment is on a first-come-first-served basis. For further information, interested local enterprises may call 2596 2777 or e-mail to futuremakers.enquiry@sjs.org.hk. (The video is broadcasted in Cantonese)
