GENERATION HONG KONG: THE NEW EDUCATION TO EMPLOYMENT NON-PROFIT PLATFORM
ARE YOU OUR MATCH?
Generation Hong Kong is not the typical non-profit organization (NGOs) that you could imagine. Instead, we’re a fast-growing non-profit start-up that doesn’t only solve problems but also drive system changes in the education to employment space. We are a team of passionate individuals coming from different backgrounds and professions, from commercial to education and non-profit sectors. “Better our Best” is our value that brings us all together. If you are open-minded, agile and want to drive changes at a deeper systemic level, this is the place that feels like home.
WHO WE ARE
Generation is an independent nonprofit founded in 2014 by McKinsey & Company to help bridge the education to employment gap – at speed and scale. We have trained and graduated 85,000+ people into careers across 17 countries with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts. Since 2018, our effort in Hong Kong covers 6 training programs in 3 future-oriented industries. Over 800 individuals have been trained and supported into careers. And the employment rate of our learners after graduation is close to 90%.
Everything we do is to support underserved individuals into life-changing careers. We believe our proven methodology can eventually serve millions of stakeholders including individuals and employers. We will never be perfect, and we always have more to learn. We use data, experience, and dialogue to grow and improve. And we are collaborating closely with our partners to drive the systemic change in the education to employment space.
WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR:
With the successful launch of one of our funder’s signature traineeship programs targeting first-time-jobseekers in Hong Kong, we are now in the advocacy phase where we strategize plans to drive systemic change in the education-to-employment space by providing a solid talent matching and development framework that has been scaled-up and delivered with impact. Our vision is to foster the Corporates, NGOs, education institutions, and other key stakeholders’ reimagination of young talents, create career pathways for youth, and transform the business landscape with new talent pools.
The Program Officer is a full-time role under Generation Hong Kong, reporting to the Program Manager. He/She will be responsible for implementing and coordinating the daily operations of a youth-employment project that involves Corporates, NGOs, education institutions, and other key stakeholders. A contract employment will be offered to the successful candidate. Permanent employment will be subject to mutual agreement between Generation Hong Kong and the individual after the contract ends.
