More than 9,000 jobs across GBA open for HK and Macau graduates



Meanwhile, each graduate hired under the Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme will receive a monthly living allowance provided by the Guangdong provincial government.

The Guangdong provincial government announced its recruitment schedule in 2021 last week (July 5), offering more than 9,000 jobs across Greater Bay Area (GBA) mainland cities to qualified fresh graduates from Hong Kong and Macau, China Daily reports.

According to the joint announcement by the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (Guangdong Provincial Committee) and the Human Resources and Social Security Department of Guangdong Province, there are a total of more than 20,000 positions available this year. Graduates from the two SARs can compete for over 9,000 jobs based in nine GBA mainland cities, i.e. Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing.

Online job applications will open from 19 to 21 July, and a written test will take place on 22 August. Each candidate can only apply for one position. 

Successful candidates from Hong Kong and Macau will enjoy the same compensation and benefits as local residents after recruitment, including pensions and medical insurance, said the statement.

On the other hand, in support of the Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme launched by the Hong Kong government on 8 January, the Guangdong provincial government will provide a monthly living allowance of no more than 1,000 yuan for up to 18 months to each graduate hired under the scheme.

As of 30 June, more than 18,000 applications are estimated to have been received for the scheme, according to the latest document submitted (July 13) to the Legislative Council by Labour and Welfare Bureau, Innovation and Technology Bureau and Labour Department.
