Whether it be covering elections, questioning top officials, producing breaking news from court or live-streaming from protest sites, HKFP’s hard-working team is on the front line of Hong Kong’s political twists and turns every day. During a tumultuous time for the city, we are in a privileged position to bear witness and help write the first draft of history.

All HKFP team members have a high level of responsibility, independence and complete freedom to chase their own stories. We have no junior staff – everyone is a multi-media journalist, and there is no such thing as a “slow news day.” 

HKFP staffers have gone on to work for outlets such as Agence France-Presse, CNN, the BBC and the Financial Times. If you want to fast-track your career, if you thrive in a fast-paced environment or wish to help shape the future of the city’s most independent English-language newsroom, consider applying to join our team.

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 will monitor the status of Hong Kong’s core values and freedoms. The HKFP team is fully committed to reporting the facts, without fear, favour or interference.
