FEATURE STORY

Empowering the Next Generation
We offer a comprehensive two-year Management Trainee Programme to provide diverse learning opportunities, such as job rotation, leadership training and mentorship coaching by senior executives, allowing our Management Trainees to explore different career paths and realise their potential.

 

“The Programme’s mission is to foster the preservation of 90 years’ valuable knowledge accumulated by the Group. Our training continuously incorporates the most up-to-date ideas, and essentially demonstrates the spirit of sharing upheld by Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group.”

Cary Sum, Manager of Human Capital Management Centre

“I joined the Group through the Management Trainee Programme and have since developed my career pathway here. When I was a Management Trainee, my mentor guided me with his concrete experience, and my supervisor nurtured me with valuable on-the-job training opportunities. Now, being a mentor myself, I will continue the good tradition in nurturing my mentees.”

Carol Cheung, Associate Director of Luxury Jewellery Management Department, Mentor and former Management Trainee

“Apart from passing on my skills and working experience as a mentor, I am responsible for supporting the mentee in transitioning from being a student to being a member of the Group. The Programme also provides a good platform for me to engage with and understand younger generations.”

Alex Cheung, Supervisor of Hong Kong and Macau Operations Management Centre, Mentor and former Management Trainee

“I studied Fine Arts at university, and I’m happy that the Group offered me this job opportunity to realise my passion in arts, and to further explore and discover the aestheticism in jewellery. This Management Trainee Programme has equipped me with diverse skills and in-depth knowledge relevant to the industry. In addition, the Programme enables me to rediscover myself.”

Ada Tung, Management Trainee

“I was pretty nervous during my first day at the retail branch. I’m grateful for the patient guidance of my experienced senior colleagues, which helped me acquire useful marketing and communication skills. I have become more confident and proactive in engaging with customers now.”

Andrew Fan, Management Trainee
