Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) has years of experience in development projects across major cities in the Greater Bay Area and fully supports the government's Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme. SHKP has become the real estate developer with the largest number of recruits into the scheme in Hong Kong, and is one of the first employers to put the scheme into action. The first batch of 14 university graduates from the Scheme were recently admitted to SHKP. After completing training in Hong Kong, they set off to the Guangzhou and Zhongshan offices and work in different SHKP departments (including the Construction Department, Leasing Department, and Project Management Department).
SHKP Executive Director Adam Kwok said, "Under the country's development blueprint, the Greater Bay Area has great potential. SHKP has years of experience in developing a variety of projects in major cities in the Greater Bay Area. These include Tianhui Plaza, a large scale integrated project in Guangzhou; Parc Central, located in the heart of the Tianhe Central Business District, as well as several large-scale residential projects. SHKP recently won a bid for sites adjacent to the Guangzhou South Railway Station, which is set to benefit from synergy with two other SHKP projects — the West Kowloon Station project in Hong Kong and the Qingsheng Station project in Nansha. Together, they will help to fully realise the economic benefits brought about by the 'one-hour living circle' in the Greater Bay Area."
To help the newcomers adapt to the life and work culture in the Greater Bay Area, SHKP has made careful arrangements to provide the graduates with an orientation programme, on-the-job coaching, job rotations and all-round departmental support. Experienced staff based in the Greater Bay Area also serve as mentors to give guidance, and to equip the graduates with the relevant knowledge and skills needed for their roles. During orientation, Adam Kwok welcomed the young graduates and advised them to keep a curious mind, and to actively learn about and keep a finger on the pulse of national development plans. He also encouraged them to hone new skills to prepare for future job roles, and to make great contributions to the Greater Bay Area alongside SHKP colleagues. Mr Kwok also urged the graduates to uphold SHKP's high-quality services and reputation, realising the Group's aspirations, and to serve as ambassadors for Hong Kong in the Greater Bay Area, working together to write the construction blueprint.
