Link Asset Management Limited (Link), the manager of Link Real Estate Investment Trust (Link REIT, stock code: 823), announced today (Thursday) it will launch Summer Young Talent Programme to nurture children of Link’s employees and property management service contractors.
“It’s particularly important to support our employees and contractors during these difficult times,” Link Chief Executive Officer George Hongchoy said. “While we’re strictly controlling spending in this trying time, we are committed to providing training to young people and support for our extended Link family given the difficulty of securing internships during the economic downturn.”
The Summer Young Talent Programme comprises of two parts: Summer Internship at Link and Work Experience series at Link Property Management Service Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Link.
The Summer Internship offers a two-month internship at Link to 35 university students or fresh graduates who are children of Link’s employees or Link University Scholarship awardees. A couple of spots will also be reserved for university students studying energy and environmental science.
The Work Experience series offer a one-month internship at Link’s property management service arm to 30 university students or fresh graduates who are children of Link’s property management service contractors*.
A staple of the Summer Young Talent Programme is soft skills training for interns to support their personal growth and career planning, including potential discovery, emotional intelligence, as well as presentation and facilitation skills. The comprehensive induction programme is rounded off with exposure to Link’s diverse business through site visits, engagement events and project engagement.
The Summer Young Talent Programme will begin in July.
* Link’s property management service contractors include cleaning, security, fitter, and car park operation services firms.
