The Administrative Officers (AOs) are professional public administrators in the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Coming from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, AOs 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 a career in the Administrative Service an opportunity to gain hands-on experience of working with serving AOs, so as to enrich their understanding of the roles and mission of an AO and 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.
