Commentary on Office Support Roles and Remuneration in Hong Kong for 2018

Office administration positions including secretary and office manager are among the most frequently advertised, with opportunities opening up across every industry. 
As business ties to the mainland expand, in particular within legal and financial sectors, we are seeing language skills become more important. We expect a continued high demand for native Mandarin and native English language skills. Chinese typing skills follow close behind.

Office support staff can expect stable salaries, with one to two months’ bonus, 15-20 days annual leave and sociable working hours during the week. Flat moves to organisations that have budget for the increment can attain 5-10% salary increase.
