Hong Kong Outplacement & Career Coaching

Despite being officially classed as part of China, Hong Kong is recognised as a special administrative region (SAR) and sustains its own independent economic and governing systems.

The region enjoys a free-market economy, featuring a reputable international financial market, low taxation and elements of free port trade. If we add to this its industry success in terms of trading, tourism, and logistics, we begin to understand why Hong Kong is often described as a Far East success story.

Hong Kong BN(O) UK Visa Career Planning Support

Ni Hao!

In 2020 the UK government introduced the new Hong Kong BN(O) visa, which enables British National Overseas (BNO) citizens ordinarily resident in Hong Kong to begin a new life and career in the UK.

This special immigration route was first considered by the British government when the Chinese government decided to impose a new National Security Law on Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong BN(O) visa

Having both Hong Kong and UK based career coaches, Executive Connexions are well placed to support those looking to land a top job in the UK, through our career coaching programmes and broad networks. We can help you with your CV, Social media presence, job interview practice, jo search strategies, personal branding and much more, through our coaching team in either Hong Kong or the UK.

The BN(O) route also provides those born after 1 July 1997 to a BN(O) registered parent with the ability to relocate to the UK.

Access to UK Career Markets

Those who use the new immigration route will have access to the career market at any skill level and without salary thresholds, but will not be permitted to claim public funds. According to the UK government, this will enable those who want to live in the UK to do so and become ‘valued members of society’. At Executive Connexions, we have experience in the UK market, with a high success rate at helping executives (and other employment levels) to land their next role faster.

The Hong Kong BN(O) Visa is similar to many other visas in that Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) can be applied for after five years of continuous and lawful residence in the UK. Once ILR has been held for 12 months, full British citizenship can be applied for.

Use of the new immigration route is not contingent upon holding a valid Hong Kong BN(O) passport. Applicants will require a valid passport in order to show proof of identity, but this can be any applicable nationality passport. A valid or expired BN(O) passport can be used to show proof of BN(O) status, however the Home Office may be able to check the status of those who do not possess a BN(O) passport of any kind.

Those born after the 1 July 1997 were not eligible to be BN(Os) as they were born after the UK’s handover of Hong Kong.

The new visa route commenced in January 2021. Those who are eligible can apply for the new visa route both inside and outside the UK.

We Invite you to Explore Our “Be Found” Programme

Our innovative “Be Found” programme is a real game changer, utilising digital media and social activities to boost the profile of the employee. The programme can furnish individuals with credibility and influence, allowing them access to the hidden jobs market.

It’s a well-known fact that not all jobs are advertised, so employees must promote themselves with gusto to attract prospective employers. A well-cultivated profile can evoke positive attention, and this could lead to that great new role.
