The ex-secretary for constitutional and mainland affairs, has secured a job with former financial secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung.

Raymond Tam Chi-yuen, 53, served as Leung's press secretary before the latter resigned in 2003 after a car-purchase scandal.

From October 1, Tam will be vice chairman of New Frontier Health and chairman of New Frontier Education.

New Frontier, an investment group Leung co-founded and chairs, is focused on health, education, innovative technology and financial industries.

Tam got the green light for the job by authorities yesterday.

Another ex-official, Rebecca Chan Hoi-yan, will become CEO of social enterprise Sounds Great Services, which specializes in audio books. She used to be political assistant to the secretary for food and health.
