Financial Industry Recruitment Scheme for Tomorrow (FIRST)
The HK Government is introducing a job creation scheme designed for the Financial Services sector. It is intended to be available to Private Equity firms' HK operations - but please note that, at present, only SFC-licensed firms will be eligible.
The FIRST scheme provides a government subsidy of HK$10,000pm for up to a year for new hires in eligible firms. Effort has been made to make the scheme easy & simple to operate - unfortunately at the cost of limiting it to licensed employers only. For licensed firms - it is well worth studying this presentation to see if your firm might be able to use the FIRST scheme.
