Graduate Development Programme

Sharing by Our Graduates


Since joining the Graduate Trainee Programme, I have been assigned to various departments such as Operations where I participated in the preparation work and launch of South Island Line; and project bidding in Sydney. Every rotation is a valuable learning experience that helps pave the way to a successful and fulfilling career. I am proud to be with MTR and looking forward to growing with this family in the many more years to come!

Being a Graduate Engineer in MTR, there are many opportunities for us to explore our own potential from various job attachments and overseas training. As I used to be an athlete of Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Team, I could switch to a new identity by applying sportsmanship to my work in MTR. Although this programme is challenging, it is indispensable for me to grow to be a professional and all-round engineer.

Publishing press release, engaging with media and coordinating media events such as media briefings and interviews in my first rotation in Corporate Relations Department have all been exciting and fresh experiences for me. I am thankful for such ample opportunities to enrich my exposure in media relationship management and crisis management.

From day one, I am afforded the opportunity to understand the city's property landscape from an unrivaled position. Yet, MTR's commitment to its young talent means that I am not restricted to my specialization. In fact, my rewarding experience working on a cross-functional initiative alongside senior managers is a testament of the Corporation's will to shape its future leaders.

Continuous learning is what signifies my experience at MTR so far. Through job rotations within the Human Resources spectrum, I have been able to learn something new about the business every day - through the lens of its people. It is fulfilling to be able to influence aspects of the organisation and to play a part in the development of our staff. I look forward to embracing more learning opportunities which would lay the foundation for my professional career at MTR.

The remarkable part of the Property Associate programme is its diverse job nature. During my rotations, I gained exposure to early planning and design work as well as frontline experience of meeting our residents and shoppers. Currently, I am working on sales and marketing of the residential project, Wings at Sea at LOHAS Park. Dynamic experiences make my journey at MTR lively and rewarding.

Steep learning curve has been the signature of every rotation experienced since I joined MTR. Cross-functional exposure has been eye opening, and laid down the foundation and breadth required for career advancement within the Corporation. Venturing into the railway industry, MTR has devoted ample resources to build the professional knowledge required while taking up challenging posts such as participating in railway franchise bids in the UK and managing various stations operations in Hong Kong has fostered my managerial competencies.

My MTR journey is fruitful and rewarding. The well-structured Graduate Engineer and Executive Associate Programmes have prepared me with the technical and management skills for challenges. I was seconded to overseas to help building the new Sydney Metro; it has been an eye-opening experience and a dream-come-true to me. I am grateful to have a professional and supportive Engineering Supervisor and Talent Management team guided me along my MTR journey. I feel accomplished and satisfied being able to improve the railway that serves the community.

It is truly a privilege to work in an organization that serves almost everyone in the community. As a Graduate Trainee, I was able to make a difference by leading the development of MTR Mobile apps. While as an Executive Associate, I was seconded to European Office for 1.5 years to drive the development of iSafety app as well as to support various bids in UK. My new role in corporate strategy team is equally exciting as it involves exploring ways to facilitate innovation culture in the Corporation. I look forward to more adventures to come with this great company!

Learning and development has never stopped since I joined MTR. In the past years, I have been assigned to different challenging job postings including Stockholm Metro and Ngong Ping 360. Not only was I able to apply my skills and knowledge developed in MTR Hong Kong to help excel the operational performance of our subsidiaries, I also widened my horizons by learning from the best practices outside of Hong Kong. I enjoy working at MTR where I can develop my professional career and make contributions to the society that we serve.

I thought it was simply an engineering career. It turns out to be a continuous growth of myself together with MTR for 20 years.
