Our Management Trainee Programme


The HKEX Management Trainee Programme has the goal of nurturing bright and young talent and grooming them into future leaders. The Programme is an intensive development programme combining interactive learning, personal and group coaching and senior management exposure with on-the-job training. As a result, Trainees develop a spectrum of experience, an open mind and a broad understanding of different aspects of HKEX's business and management.


MTs will go through intensive training with the goal of nurturing their leadership skills, teamwork abilities, professional knowledge and soft skills. Highlights of the training include leadership challenges, skills for Management Trainees, presentations, and many more. Ongoing training will continue to be offered over the 28 month programme.


MTs will go through one month of departmental familiarisation covering all divisions in HKEX, from Listing and Markets to Commodities and Internal Audit. MTs will attend sharing sessions by senior staff from each department and go through on-the-job training to experience what it is like to work in a particular department for a day.


During the programme, MTs will work in four to five different departments from different divisions that will provide hands-on experience for MTs to understand HKEX's business and operations. It will also create opportunities for MTs to better understand their strengths, career aspirations and build internal networks through exposure during the department attachments.

What Else?

Strong Support - MT Managers and staff from each division will provide guidance and coaching to MTs to facilitate their learning.

Regular Training – MTs will be provided with additional training throughout the Programme to equip them with the skills required for their daily work and personal development.

Social Activities – MTs will interact regularly with senior management and other staff in social activities outside of work.

What's Next?

Upon completion of the 28-month Programme, MTs will then be able to pick a department based on their preferences and strengths, subject to their performance and HKEX's business needs.

The ultimate end-goal of the Programme is to develop MTs into our senior management with the important responsibility to run one of our core businesses in the future.
