"Demand is particularly strong across overseas-headquartered luxury and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) businesses. Candidates with social media and online experience draw attention for PR and ecommerce roles, as players adapt to changing consumer purchasing habits," says Japan-based Hays Operations Director, Asia, Christine Wright.
"Many smaller new entrants to the market also need bilingual staff to support their expansion across the region, while larger players with a more established brand presence in Japan seek experienced, strategic professionals able to help them retain their customer-base," says Christine.
Demand is also resilient for bilingual candidates for roles spanning Store Managers, Sales Managers, Retail Managers and Wholesale experts, as well as Merchandiser wholesale, Public Relations, Visual Merchandising, Digital Marketing, Marketing, Sales Promotion, E-commerce and Brand/Category Managers.
Hays' Sales & Marketing team has most recently filled positions encompassing Managers for premier flagship luxury goods stores, Heads of Marketing and Business Development for overseas-headquartered new entrants to Japan, and PR and Marketing Managers for luxury goods providers and clothing brands, as well as FMCG and large online retail businesses.
The trend has prompted Hays to further expand its Sales & Marketing team in Japan, with a focus on retail/consumer. This builds on strong growth across the team over the past year, and Hays is actively seeking to add experienced consultants.
