An “Internships and Work Placements” Scheme has been developed under the “Young Professionals Programme” by leveraging the “Business and Professionals Programme” in partnership with a range of organizations across industry sectors.
This scheme aims to provide students, graduates and returners the opportunity to gain valuable skills, improve their employability and to encourage greater socio-economic diversity within different industry sectors. At the same time, this scheme also benefits our partners and potential employers by providing them access to talented graduates from a diverse range of backgrounds across industry sectors and helps them meet their diversity targets.

The “Internships and Work Placements” are merit-based, available at different durations and on different payment basis which will be confirmed with the organization providing the specific “Internship or Work Placement” at the time of the interview.
We will update the “Internships and Work Placements” on this page on a monthly basis and candidates will need to apply before the end of each month (please refer to the section “How do I apply” below).
