Classified Post

The Classified Post, published every Saturday, is an English-language recruitment publication in Hong Kong with a reputation for offering quality job postings. Launched in 1973, it originally came in a single section of the South China Morning Post following 70 years of classified advertisements published as part of the main paper. It was changed to a multi-section publication in 1988 as demand from advertisers grew.
