Jobs at HKFP

Run by journalists, not-for-profit and completely independent, Hong Kong Free Press is expanding. We invite applicants to join our multi-media, multi-lingual team ahead of our relaunch in early 2020.


Whether it be covering elections, questioning top officials at press events, producing breaking news from the High Court, or reporting live from protest clashes, HKFP’s tight-knit, hard-working team is on the front line of Hong Kong’s political twists, turns and turmoil every day. We are in a privileged position to record the first draft of history and share our coverage with the world during a period of unprecedented conflict in the city.

All staff at HKFP have a high level of responsibility, independence and freedom to chase their own stories – we have no junior staff, and there is no such thing as a “slow news day.” If you thrive in a fast-paced environment and want to launch your career, or help shape the future of the city’s most exciting news start-up as we expand and relaunch next year, consider applying to join our newsroom.


hong kong free press team in action

Our mission: We aim to be the most independent and credible English-language news source in Greater China. We seek to amplify the voices of the voiceless, not the powerful. And our platform will act as a monitor should Hong Kong’s core values and freedoms be threatened. The HKFP team is fully committed to reporting the facts, without fear, favour or interference.
