It is the manpower provider’s first office in the country and the operation will act as a hub for business activity across Japan.
Located in the Yokohama Landmark Tower in the Minato Mirai area of the city, the office is managed locally by Yousef Ayub, operations manager, who previously worked at the company’s office in Singapore. NES Global Talent plans to make further hires during the course of 2014/15.
Matt Underhill, regional director, Asia Pacific at NES Global Talent, said: “We are excited by the job opportunities available in Japan.
“The Japanese energy market is particularly interesting right now, both on the international stage and within the local domestic energy markets. With recent events around the nuclear power industry, Japan is currently undergoing a significant review of their energy supply, and this will undoubtedly create opportunities as the market evolves.
“Being in country allows us to build up the network of talent across all the energy markets to service the future needs of our clients. This is an investment that has both short and long term opportunities for NES Global Talent.”
