Top-Tier Recruiters, Japan

Japan is an island country in the Asia Pacific. It has the fourth-largest economy by nominal GDP and is one of the world’s largest importers and exporters. The country has made significant contributions to technology and science and is an international leader in the electronics, robotics, and automotive industries.

Japanese culture is globally renowned, encompassing its art, cuisine, music, film, and popular culture, which includes the influential manga, anime, and video game sectors, establishing Japan as a cultural superpower.

Japan has a tight labor market, with a low unemployment rate and a rising number of unfilled vacancies due to a shortage of qualified candidates, especially bilinguals. This can make recruitment challenging for employers in Japan, which is where Keller comes in.

We leave no stone unturned in our search for the perfect candidates, helping you find the right fit for your staffing requirements. Our approach is versatile and can be adjusted to fulfill the specific human resources needs of our client firms.


Keller's Services

We tailor our recruitment services to meet the needs of our clients, understanding that no company is the same. This customized approach ensures that we place the right professionals in the right jobs, saving our clients precious time, money, and resources in the long run.

Furthermore, our industry specialists understand the nuances of the local market, giving us an advantage over other Japanese recruitment firms when sourcing candidates for open roles. We also have access to international job boards and a vast database of candidates, allowing us to locate professionals who may not be actively seeking a new position but are open to job opportunities.

Finally, Keller’s recruitment agents are on hand to address any questions or concerns that may arise during the hiring process. We also assist with onboarding to ensure the new hire quickly assimilates into the company.

Our Approach

To kickstart the recruitment process, we schedule a meeting between our consultants and our client’s business leaders. During this meeting, we compile a profile for the ideal candidate to define the parameters of the job search. This includes the preferred attributes, qualifications, and skills of prospective candidates, plus the challenges and responsibilities that come with the job.

Once the candidate profile is complete, we start approaching job seekers who may be a good fit for the requirements. We consider candidates who are both in the job market and those who are not but could be looking for the right opportunity to make their next career move.

Every professional interested in the role undergoes a rigorous evaluation to validate the following:

  • Previous work experience and references
  • Criminal history

Professionals who pass the assessment phase will be presented to our client for final interviews.


Local Expertise, Global Reach

Today’s ever-evolving business landscape demands swift action from companies for them to stay afloat. Keller understands that navigating these fluctuations can be challenging, which is why we stay informed about the most recent developments in the industry. This enables us to predict when the next change will happen and put measures in place to circumvent them, capitalizing on any opportunities that arise in the process.

Beyond our knowledge of local industry dynamics, we have an international presence that allows us to source candidates from abroad. In other words, we can extend our search for the perfect candidate beyond local borders should our client express a desire to hire someone outside of Japan.


Keller's Guarantee

A core tenet of our recruitment approach is upholding our clients’ privacy, offering professional recruiting services that never compromise their business’s security.

In addition, we follow an impartial approach to candidate selection that ensures every applicant has an equal opportunity to be selected for the role regardless of age, gender, religion, or ethnic background. In other words, we focus on a candidate’s skills and qualifications and whether they would be a good fit for the company culture in terms of their personality.

As one of the top recruitment agencies in Japan, Keller knows the value of hiring the right employee for your business. We also know the positive implications that every correct placement affords us as a recruitment firm. Consequently, we are committed to delivering only the best professionals to our client firms.

However, should a candidate we place fall short of our client’s standards or depart from the company before the end of their first 90 days of employment, we will offer to replace them at no additional charge.
