Standard Chartered Youth Creative Industry Employment Scheme

Organised by Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) and powered by Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited, The Standard Chartered Youth Creative Industry Employment Scheme provides employment opportunities for youth graduates to jumpstart their creative careers.
