The purpose of the Student Helper Engagement Scheme is to provide opportunities for paid campus work to students, in the form of assisting University academics/administrators in their projects.

Nature of Work

The Student Helper Engagement Scheme is a short-term casual engagement of Full-time students on hourly basis, which should not cause distraction from the primary attention to their studies as students. Recruiting Departments/Units may engage Student Helpers directly. The engagement does not take the form of a formal appointment and is not intended for substantial and long-term employment relationship. Usually, the Student Helpers are to assist academic staff in their research projects or to assist administrative staff in projects which require extra manpower in a casual and non-professional fashion. Engagement of students for professional service should not be arranged through the scheme.

Remuneration (Standard Rate)

The standard rate of the Student Helpers is HKD60 per hour. Departments / Units may offer different rates based on the merits of the particular engagements, as deemed appropriate.
