(i) It is Government policy to place people with a disability in appropriate jobs wherever possible. If a disabled applicant meets the entry requirements, he/she will be invited to attend the written test. Applicants who have declared disabilities found suitable for appointment may be given an appropriate degree of preference over other applicants whose suitability for appointment is considered comparable to that of the former. The Government policy and other related measures on employment of persons with disabilities are set out in the booklet “Employ People Based on Their Abilities – Application for Government Jobs by Persons with Disabilities” which is available for reference on the Civil Service Bureau's website at http://www.csb.gov.hk under “Administration of the Civil Service – Appointments”.

The vacancies advertised are open to all applicants meeting the basic entry requirements irrespective of their disability, sex, marital status, pregnancy, age, family status, sexual orientation and race.

Applicants not invited to attend the written test may consider their applications unsuccessful. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified but applicants may enquire about their application status at telephone number 2762 5115, if necessary.
(iv) The written test will test the writing ability in both English and Chinese.
(v) Applicants with higher ranking in the written test will be invited to attend a subsequent interview. Applicants not invited to attend the interview may consider their applications unsuccessful. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified but applicants may enquire about their application status at telephone number 2762 5115, if necessary.
