I am EmployerPrint

What do I need to know if I want to employ an ethnic minority?
1. Language proficiency needed for the posts

Review the job nature and distinguish if the post requires the candidate read/write/listen/speak in Cantonese or English. It helps you to find the right candidate easier!

Example 1:
pointing-hand-icon-32437 You would like to employ a staff to do packing, the staff just need to wrap the product and not necessary to communicate with others.
i.e. You need to hire a staff with no/low Cantonese/English proficiency.

Example 2:
pointing-hand-icon-32437 You would like to hire a truck driver and there is a Chinese worker who can read the address.
i.e. You need to hire a staff with no/low Cantonese/English proficiency but adequate Cantonese/English speaking proficiency so he/she can communicate with the Chinese worker.
