Testing and Certification Sector Job Creation Scheme (TCJS) (Application Closed)

To relieve the unemployment situation due to the epidemic and as part of the anti-epidemic measures, the Anti-Epidemic Fund (AEF) 6.0 will allocate resources to create time-limited jobs in the private sector. The Testing and Certification Sector Job Creation Scheme (the Scheme) is launched under the AEF.

The Scheme aims to encourage private testing and certification (T&C) organisations to create more job opportunities, and attract people to join the T&C sector, so as to enrich Hong Kong’s T&C talent pool.

Under the Scheme, each local private T&C organisation with valid accreditation status given by the Hong Kong Accreditation Service may apply for a monthly subsidy for up to five eligible job positions. For each approved position, the applicant employer will receive a monthly subsidy of HK$10,000 or 50% of the salary of the position, whichever is lower, for 12 months.

To learn more about the scheme, please see FAQs.

Application Period

From 24 August 2022 to 31 July 2023.
