The Beijing Civil Affairs Bureau announced on March 21 that Beijing will openly recruit 1,000 community workers starting from March 21.

Non-Beijing graduates and former graduates from colleges and universities in Beijing below 45 are eligible for the recruitment. Those who pass the evaluation for two consecutive years may become Beijing residents.

Zhao Sen, director of the Grassroots Political Power Department under the Beijing Civil Affairs Bureau, said the recruitment is aimed at consolidating grassroots organizations and strengthening grassroots power; innovating the introduction and cultivation mode of community workers; and creating professional social worker teams.

Beijing needs more than 10,000 community workers if every 500 households are allocated one community worker. There is still a huge gap between the current number of Beijing's community workers and the actual demand. Therefore, Beijing plans to gradually fill the gap in the next three years.
