REASONS FOR WOKING AT THE SPCA(HK):
I like travelling and meeting new people. In working for the SPCA I get the opportunity to work in a challenging environment, whilst improving my skills and taking part in animal welfare. Living in another country also gives me the chance to gain an insight into a different culture. Hong Kong provides a vibrant city life but also gives the chance to explore nature.
