We are a well-established niche sector recruitment company with a strong focus on the Japanese market in the UK and Europe.
We are seeking a new, associate consultant to join our European team to support our growth and to strengthen our current operation.
Our Japan Team manages Japanese-speaking vacancies across all sectors and industries whereas our European Team acts as a generalist recruitment company, supporting Japanese organisation in non-Japanese speaking roles in the UK and Europe as well as a broad variety of positions outside of the Japanese market.

We are seeking a new, associate consultant to join our European team to support our growth and to strengthen our current operation.

In time the role will take on a stronger ‘technical recruitment’ focus so an interest in IT would be highly preferrable

• Business Development: Identifying and developing new client/business relationships (UK and Europe)

• Account Management: Managing client relations through effective and professional communication


Daily activity – what to expect?

• Assessing and responding to the needs of each client and assignment. Each client will have a different need, so it is important to understand exactly what is required

Ideal candidate

• Professional exposure to Japanese business culture would be great as you will be liaising with Japanese clients and candidates on occasion
• Experience with Japanese culture is essential (most of your colleagues will be Japanese)

• Any additional languages would be advantageous (but not essential)
