Only those able to offer outstanding service should think of applying for positions for highly educated engineers and communication experts at a world-class science park. The newly created posts of engineer and senior engineer, photonics; engineer, product analysis; officer, key accounts; and officer, event marketing/marketing communication have arisen at one of the world's top one-stop shops for high-technology research and development. A premier government statutory body, the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corp (HKSTP) operates the two-year-old Science Park in Sha Tin, plus industrial estates and its Tech Centre. Offering many services devoted to assisting high value-added industry, the HKSTP co-operates with hi-tech start-ups, supports incubation programmes and offers top-quality infrastructure and support facilities for innovation and technology development. It also fosters partnerships between industry and universities. HKSTP vice-president, business development and technology support, S.W. Cheung, said each job was based at the Sha Tin park and all demanded 'a good service attitude' irrespective of their specialisation due to the park's user-friendly focus. Among other services, the park leases 'state-of-the-art' equipment to tenants at a laboratory created with the Chinese University Hong Kong - which is where the position of product analysis engineer comes in. 'All this equipment is very expensive and sophisticated, so we need an engineer to man this,' Mr Cheung said. The HKSTP requires photonics engineers for its photonic development centre to support tenants from the electronic information technology design and photonic industry. Perhaps the greatest selling point of these posts is the 'excitement' of working for one of the best facilities of its kind in the world. 'By taking care of customers' needs, you have the chance to use sophisticated equipment you won't find anywhere else in Asia.' Because everybody who uses the lab wants fast service, a service mentality is a prerequisite. 'Ideal engineering candidates include graduates with a high engineering or science degree, who are technically adept and good at meeting people,' Mr Cheung said. The park is more than 80 per cent rented and surging inquiries mean it should hit 95 per cent by mid-next year. 'We have to hire people for marketing and key accounts to make sure tenants are happy with our services,' Mr Cheung said. With duties ranging from organising events to promotion, the new marketing events and communication officer will 'support the expansion of the science park and support incoming companies'.
