Initial appointment will be made on fixed-term gratuity-bearing contract terms. Appointees will receive a contract-end gratuity subject to satisfactory completion of the period of employment.

Appointees will be eligible for consideration of appointment on gratuity-bearing continuous terms (except for those appointed on project basis), subject to good performance after a minimum of two consecutive gratuity-bearing contracts of no less than four years of continuous service as administrative and services staff, under the prevailing review mechanism.
Appointees of all grades appointed on continuous terms will receive a service gratuity at 15% of basic salary, payable every three years on satisfactory completion of service. The amount of employer’s contribution to the Mandatory Provident Fund Scheme will be offset from the gratuity payment.

The University has absolute discretion in considering and deciding whether an appointment is to be made, continued, renewed or otherwise.

The continuous employment will be subject to review, depending on the performance of the appointees.
Salary will be competitive, commensurate with the appointee’s qualifications and experience.
