(b) If a new recruit progresses onto new permanent terms upon satisfactory completion of the probationary/agreement period, he/she will be eligible to join the Civil Service Provident Fund (CSPF) Scheme. The Government's contributions under the CSPF Scheme, including mandatory and voluntary contributions, follow a progressive contribution rates schedule ranging from 5% to 25% of the basic salary of an eligible officer at his/her substantive rank, depending on his/her completed years of continuous service on civil service terms. In general, the above-mentioned Government's contribution rate is 15% at the time when an eligible officer who has completed three years of continuous service progresses onto new permanent terms and joins the CSPF Scheme. Further information on the CSPF Scheme may be accessed on CSB's website (http://www.csb.gov.hk).

The vacancies advertised are open to all candidates meeting the basic entry requirements irrespective of their disability, sex, marital status, pregnancy, age, family status, sexual orientation and race.
