Internship Program

Background

Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui is a Church organization, which has been established in Hong Kong since the 19th century. The establishment of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Archives (“HKSKH Archives”) was proposed by Archbishop Paul Kwong in January, 2010. In October, 2012, the Revd Prof. Philip L. Wickeri was appointed Provincial Archivist. The Archives are housed in Bishop’s House, 1 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong.

Objective

The HKSKH Archives has a five part mission statement. One purpose is to promote awareness of the importance of archival preservation and promote HKSKH Archives within the HKSKH and the wider public. Through collaboration with the local universities in their internship programs, on one hand we could have students helping us in our archival work and on the other hand, provide an invaluable educational experience for the students to work in an existing archive before graduation from university.

Nature of the Work

The work of the interns includes organization of archives; indexing; scanning of documents and other work as decided by the Archivist.

Internship Period

Internship Period is very flexible. It could be on full-time basis from Mondays to Fridays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, or on part-time basis for two or three days a week from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Lunch time will be from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

Allowance

A daily allowance of HK$100 will be provided to interns for travel and lunch expenses. The allowance will be credited directly to the interns’ bank account in the last week of every month.

Relevant lecture on HKSKH Archives and Archives Management will be given to interns at the beginning of their internship. As time permits, we will also organize visit to other local archives or HKSKH churches to help students better understand archival work and our organization.
