The Insurance Authority (IA) announced the rolling out of the ‘Insurance Talent Development Programme’ in support of the Hong Kong government’s initiative to provide assistance to people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, create jobs and nurture talent for the insurance sector.
The programme will offer 32 temporary positions under various functions of the IA for an employment period of up to 12 months. These positions include supervision, licensing, complaint handling and administrative support.
The programme is part of the government’s job creation scheme under the second round of the anti-epidemic fund. The job creation scheme was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the local employment situation.
