The learning and development programme utilises 70/20/10 principles and is competency-based, with the aim being to develop your professional and general management capabilities. During the three years of the programme, a variety of training activities will develop your personal effectiveness and self-leadership and help you transition to a supervisory role.

Through experiencing the breadth and depth of the Club’s diverse businesses, the aim is to help you develop your professional competencies and identify a job role that matches your aspiration and capabilities.
 
While the Club is mainly based in Hong Kong, we also encourage Management Trainees to experience our business activities and projects in the Mainland, or even at the international level - subject to development needs, timing and the opportunities available.
 
During the online application process, you will be required to indicate your most preferred function. We encourage you also to indicate a second preference or be open to other areas. This would widen the scope and enable us to identify a path that will match your skills and experience.
 
Your hosting function and job rotations will be carefully planned in collaboration with yourself, taking account of your strengths and development needs as well as the opportunities available within the Club.
