10 Reasons Recruiters Should Relocate to Hong Kong!

1)  Natural beauty meets modern city

Hong Kong is notorious for its skyscrapers and busy neon streets, but there is also an abundance of natural beauty to explore. With stunning views from hills to the North and tranquil beaches to the South, Hong Kong has 250 islands which are perfect for hiking, water sports, junk boat trips and sailing.

 

2) Thriving expat community

With an expat community of 100,000 in Hong Kong, it is the perfect place to relocate with no alternative language skills. It is the ideal city for professionals to network and socialise with like-minded individuals.

 

3) Efficiency

The government is dedicated to development, whether that be through investing in business, property or public organisations. Transport is innovative, clean and cheap, with the metro costing only 25p one way and taxis being extremely reasonable. The healthcare system is also ahead of its time and is free of charge. If you’re moving with a family, the standard of education is one of the best in the world.

 

4) Travel!

With 15 bank holidays a year, it’s a great opportunity to explore the surrounding areas. With the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Sri Lanka in close distance, you can spend long weekends travelling across the rest of Asia. Lamma Island is a 30-minute boat ride from downtown which is a nice getaway from the bustle of the city.

5) Low Taxes

Personal taxes are capped at 17%!

 

6) Food, drink and nightlife

There’s something for everyone when it comes to socialising. As the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong is also thriving when it comes to shopping. With traditional markets for local street food, commercial stores and more familiar restaurants, there’s always something new to try. Nightlife is buzzing and varied and Hong Kong has notorious social clubs that you can join.

7) Business is thriving

The government is always looking to develop key industries in Hong Kong, and with some of the world’s largest regional offices based there, it is an excellent location to progress your career. Hong Kong is one of Asia’s most successful hubs for the recruitment industry, with construction, engineering, digital and technology sectors continuing to flourish.

 

8) Low crime rates

Whether you walk around the city in the day or the night, you will feel comfortable as the crime rates in Hong Kong are low compared to the UK.

 

9) Property development

Live in an impressive futuristic apartment in the city or live in a spacious apartment, closer to the beach or pool. There’s always new buildings being developed somewhere in Hong Kong, so you can choose what neighborhood suits your lifestyle.

 

10) Excellent salaries

Although the price of living and accommodation is higher than in the UK, salaries are strong and tax is low in Hong Kong, meaning that there’s excellent earning potential.
