The first digit of the “Occupational Code” (Column 2) in the Professional Categories List, which is attached with this notice, indicates the category of the relevant job title and Column 7 (“Job Title English”) indicates the job title which needs to be referred to while determining the relevant Occupational Code. For instance, the Occupational code for a director is 112003 and category is 1.
