Solving employment problems by providing opportunities to young people
2015-05-18

Given Tung Chung’s geographical and traffic constraints, residents often find themselves having to travel out of Tung Chung into urban areas, while those living in urban areas find themselves heading to Tung Chung for work. This has led to a number of family and health problems. With job opportunities in the district often falling short of young people’s expectations, job placement for Tung Chung youth has become an issue.

 

On May 16, 2015, the Council’s Tung Chung Integrated Services held the TEEN Job Expo at the Fu Tung Estate podium. 37 companies offered 4,048 positions, 1,570 of which gave candidates on-the-spot interviews. Joint recruitment also took place, where applicants were matched with prospective jobs. A “Manpower Development Scheme” exhibition and skill demonstrations by the Employees Retraining Board’s also gave participants of the fair employment ideas.

 

The expo took place between 10.30 in the morning to 4.30 in the afternoon. During the opening ceremony, Ms Keung Choi Yin, Service Director of the Council, presented tokens of appreciation to participating companies to thank them for their support. Organisers also invited representatives of four industries, including postnatal care service providers, beauty and nail technicians, security personnel and property managers, and baristas, to demonstrate their skills and to talk about their careers.
