China Expert 2018 F.E.C program

To help your business in the Chinese market.

What is the China Expert F.E.C. program

China Tekway's China Expert project is done in co-operation with the ELY centre of Uusimaa area and is one of the employment programs of the ELY centre.

With the growth of China, companies around the world require more expertise on how to do business with it. Through the China Expert program, you will gain an employee who will have a good knowledge about the work done in your company and, through our training, a concrete understanding of what is required when dealing with Chinese clients and partners and how it differs from dealing with Finnish or European partners and clients.

What does the program entail

As the name already tells you, the idea of the program is to give you a person who has a strong understanding and knowledge of China which you can put to use in your business.

The program consists of a 6 month working period done in your company for an employee chosen through the China Expert program. The employee will work as a trainee for your company and you have the option of hiring him as a permanent employee during or after the program. The trainee period is unpaid.

In addition to the work he does for your company, he will also get special training from us in skills and knowhow that is needed when dealing with Chinese customers and partners. We will improve the expertise of the employee about the Chinese market, laws and culture. The aim of the training is that it serves both the needs of your company and the individual working for you.

Why you should participate in this program

Finding an employee through the China Expert program is easy. We will make the search according to your criteria and you just pick the perfect employee for yourself.

In addition to being professionals in their own fields, the training the applicants receive allows them to better understand the ways Chinese do business and increases their China-related expertise. Thus, through their knowledge they bring additional value to your company and, in this way, help you develop your business.
