Generation Hong Kong seeks to recruit a Head of Business Development and Partnerships (assuming the title of Business Development and Partnerships Lead) to join the Generation X CLAP initiative, under CLAP for Youth @ JC (“CLAP") phase II which is a five-year project initiated by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. It will focus on fostering a sustainable ecosystem to facilitate youth with their transition from school to work, enabling them to pursue a fulfilling life through cross sector collaborations in school, community and workplace.
The Business Development and Partnerships Lead is a full-time role that will report directly to the CEO of Generation HK with the 2 key responsibilities below:
1) Securing jobs for graduates across a growing employer portfolio
Securing employer commitments to hire graduates of the Generation program is a critical enabler of our high placement rates. You are responsible for maintaining high job attainment rates by identifying and securing vacancies for graduates from among our network of employer partners, as well as growing this network in its own right. You are further tasked with identifying opportunities to embed our methodology in the recruiting and training processes of large private sector employers.
2) Forging and managing institutional partnerships for Generation HK
Institutional partners (funders, government, training organizations, corporates) provide Generation HK with much needed financing and infrastructure to deliver our programs. For example, philanthropic funders provide grants, corporations and associations provide access to new employer networks. You are responsible for identifying new target partners, developing relationships and securing formal agreements to collaborate with these institutions, delivering the resourcing that Generation HK needs to achieve our impact targets.

Generation is the fastest-scaling and largest demand-driven global youth employment program by annual volume. In six years of operation, we have trained and graduated 39,000+ adults into careers across 14 countries. Our mission is to transform education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible. We have a methodology that we believe can serve hundreds of thousands—and eventually millions—of people who are unemployed, underemployed, or need to learn new skills. Our program creates real business value for employers and lasting career impact for participants. The Generation methodology demonstrates a model that is scalable and replicable, and is designed in pursuit of return-on-investment outcomes for learners and employers alike.
Generation demonstrates a model that is globally scalable and replicable, and proves value to both learners and employers. Generation recruits, trains, and places needful individuals into careers; and, once the latter are on the job, Generation measures the return on investment for both graduates and employer partners over time. For our graduates, we track personal and financial well-being; and, for our employers, we assess the performance of Generation graduates relative to their non-Generation job peers along productivity and quality outcomes, retention, and speed to promotion.
Generation Hong Kong launched as a non-profit in the name of “Generation: You Employed (HK) Limited" under Section 88 in early 2018, aiming to tackle the gap between education to employment in Hong Kong. To-date, Generation Hong Kong has graduated ~270 adults in three professions: Customer Service, Digital Marketing and Eldercare.
