Development

Through the rotations across different teams, trainees will gain a great deal of technical skills through training courses, coaching from experienced technical staff, and also gain experience through project execution.

In addition to the technical skills, we strongly believe the value of developing knowledge of the business and developing business analysis, communication, stakeholder engagement and project management skills. There will be an emphasis on developing these areas through a combination of classroom training and through project experience.

Mentorship

Besides the great opportunities to learn from peers, trainees will be assigned a mentor from our most senior leaders within IT Group who have 15+ years of experience in the IT industry to help provide feedback and support across the career journey.

IT Trainee Sharing

The CLP IT Trainee Programme has been a rewarding experience for me. The comprehensive rotational structure allows me to get a holistic overview of IT Group (ITG). I am given a chance to explore my interests in different streams and advance my career with CLP. Being involved with a variety of projects across departments, I have gained exposure in various IT areas, ranging from project management to solution design, as well as cyber security and system architecture.

The Company has trust in IT trainees by giving me opportunities to take the lead in various projects. Managing a project could be challenging, especially when it involves different internal and external stakeholders. Job satisfaction arises from successful project completion and I can see my designs or solutions being put into service. In addition to building up my skills from work experience, I have also broadened my network by working with colleagues from diverse areas.

Besides, the mentorship scheme has been beneficial to my career development. Trainees are paired up with mentors from IT management. I meet the mentor on a regular basis where we exchange ideas and learn from the wisdom that him/her has accumulated over the years. Being a fresh graduate without much work experience, this valuable advice can guide me to make the right decisions and work effectively.

What truly distinguishes the CLP IT Trainee Programme is ITG’s pioneering initiative in adopting state-of-art technology in our workplace. I get a taste of new tools in different domains, such as business data analytics, cloud computing, operational technology and information security, etc. ITG provides a nurturing environment for me to leverage the latest technologies and be rewarded with a satisfying personal growth.

The CLP IT Trainee Programme is a fruitful program that allows me to explore various IT areas. It is worth mentioning that the areas are so distinctive, including but are not limited to IT infrastructure, analytics, architecture, applications development, cyber security and so on. Therefore, I can gain a lot of exposure to all these fields and learn how they complement each other. And one of the surprising points to me is that CLP is always adopting the latest technology in the workplace, so I was able to try the newest tools and solutions, which are so eye-opening.

Throughout the programme, I can have the chance to assist in many kinds of projects ranging from pure IT projects to business IT projects. I understood IT is not just about technology nor application, but more on driving the business to make values to the company and eventually to the customers. Instead of focusing on the technical side, we always consider the business needs and think from the customer side. With such a mindset, I can learn how to deliver projects with fewer obstacles and better results.

Besides involving in different projects that had enriched my working experiences, CLP’s supportive working culture also broadened my mind. It is very fortunate that I met many friendly and helpful colleagues and managers during the program. They are willing to assist and teach patiently, and open for any questions and problems so that I can always have someone to find when I am confused or seeking for help. The experienced mentors from mentorship program also play as a great guidance for me across the career journey in CLP.
