Administrative Service Internship Programme 2021

 

The Administrative Officers (AOs) are professional administrators in the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.  They are involved in formulation of government policies, coordination and monitoring of the implementation of programmes, and  management of the use of public resources.  They enjoy variety in their career through regular rotation to different bureaux and departments, and contribute to different areas of work in the Government.

The primary objective of the Administrative Service Internship Programme (“the Programme”) is to give Hong Kong students who wish to pursue an AO career an opportunity to get hands-on experience of working with serving AOs, so as to facilitate their future career planning.

Students participating in the Programme will be assigned duties similar in nature to those of AOs in different government bureaux or departments.  Students will also have the opportunity to visit various government offices and / or relevant public organisations.
