General Notes

(i) It is Government policy to place people with a disability in appropriate jobs wherever possible. If a disabled applicant meets the entry requirements, he/she will be invited to attend the selection interview/written examination without being subject to any further shortlisting. Applicants who have declared disabilities found suitable for appointment may be given an appropriate degree of preference over other applicants whose suitability for appointment is considered comparable to that of the former. The Government policy and other related measures on employment of persons with disabilities are set out in the booklet “Employ People Based on Their Abilities – Application for Government Jobs by Persons with Disabilities” which is available for reference on the Civil Service Bureau's website at http://www.csb.gov.hk under “Administration of the Civil Service – Appointments”.
(ii) As an Equal Opportunities Employer, the Government is committed to eliminating discrimination in employment. The vacancies advertised are open to all applicants meeting the entry requirements irrespective of their disability, sex, marital status, pregnancy, age, family status, sexual orientation and race.

Applicants should make themselves available for the interview during that period. Unsuccessful applicants will not be invited for interview. Applicants may enquire about their application situation at telephone no. 3509 8317 if necessary.
(iv) The interview schedule stated in item (iii) above is subject to change at the discretion of the Government without prior notification to applicants.
