Job deal to help Taiwanese land mainland posts


Taiwan's 1111 Job Bank said yesterday it would cooperate with a Hong Kong manpower agency in mediating between Taiwanese nationals wishing to work in China and their would-be mainland employers.

Wang Hsiao-tsu (王孝慈), president of the job bank, said his company signed a cooperative agreement with the Hong Kong-based Manpower Resources Computing Co to jointly offer an international executive search platform whose functions will include helping Taiwanese land jobs in China.

Wang said the 1111 Job Bank would help experienced Taiwanese professionals, particularly those in traditional industries, banking and other service fields as well as the high-tech industry, to secure new jobs on the other side of the Taiwan Strait through open and transparent channels.

According to Wang, MRC is scheduled to hold a head-hunting activity in Hong Kong for large Chinese and Taiwanese-funded companies on the mainland in late June.

The manpower recruitment program will offer 1,000 jobs in banking, insurance, property, construction and high-tech fields, Wang said, adding that competent Taiwanese in those lines of business are welcome to take part in the test in Hong Kong.

According to a recent MRC survey, Taiwanese professionals account for 20.7 percent of the overseas talent hired by 513 enterprises in eight major Chinese industrial and commercial cities -- Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou (廣州), Shenzhen (深圳), Wuhan (武漢), Chengdu (成都), Xian (西安) and Hengzhou (杭州). The survey shows that 50.7 percent come from Hong Kong and the US, while the remaining overseas talent hails from Japan, France, Malaysia and other places.
