Japan needs skilled professionals

Currently, Japan is facing a labour shortage.

A growing aging population combined with a diminishing birth-rate have contributed to a surge of attractive job opportunities.

The Japanese economy is on the rise and the job market currently benefits the job seeker with a ratio of 1.6 job openings per applicant.

Third largest economy in the world

Japan currently boasts the world’s third largest nominal GDP.

This not only allows Japanese companies to consider global development, but also acts as an attractive market for foreign companies to expand in.

The increase of international work environments means both local and foreign companies need experienced professionals to lead the expansion.



With the rise of globalization in the Japan market, companies are actively seeking professionals with overseas expertise, especially in metropolitan areas like Tokyo and Osaka.

The influx of foreign visitors, especially due to events such as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2025 Osaka Expo, further drive the need for professionals with a globalized skill set.
