Tailored Recruitment Service Specialising in Executives and CXOs

VantagePoint serves a very specific niche, management consultancy and change management roles, at an exceptionally high level.


VantagePoint is a long-established JAC Group brand that caters to three types of clients. One of the most significant of these is management consultancies that rely on our unrivalled talent-sourcing capabilities when they have important positions to fill. We also work with Japanese companies and MNCs in Japan when they require professionals with a strong management consultancy background.

Additionally, VantagePoint has become an established recruitment partner to many digital startups and businesses in the life sciences, consumer goods and financial services sectors when they need talented individuals to help with change management. For almost 20 years, our highly specialised, in-depth know-how of a very specific marketplace has given us an edge and agility that is unmatched in Japan.

Strength of VantagePoint

An accelerator for growth

Our purpose is to align with the strategic growth ambitions of both our candidates and clients, acting as an accelerator to help both parties achieve tangible results. Our 100% bespoke approach allows us to tailor each engagement to meet the precise requirements of our clients. This means we can assist with a wide range of roles, from up-and-coming talent to senior management, all the way up to the CEO level.

Where Recruitment Meets Professional Services

One reason VantagePoint meets clients' needs so well is that our team comprises both recruitment consultants and individuals from a management consultancy background. By merging the worlds of professional services and recruitment, we can walk in the shoes of our clients and advise them on any important capability gaps they may have.

These conversations lead to a profile of the ideal talent, which is our starting point for the recruitment process. We never begin with CVs; they only come into play once we have identified the skill sets that a client requires in a candidate who will assist them with their business growth ambitions.

Multidisciplinary Candidates

For a business to make exponential gains, key members of the management team may need to handle different functions at once. They may need to work on both strategy and transformation at the same time, for example – which is where we come in. With a contacts book spanning the entire management consultancy and professional services sector, we have relationships with a large number of highly proficient, multi-skilled individuals who have both the experience and vision to push your business forward.

An Innovative Blend of Tradition and High-Tech

Digital tools have become a mainstay of the recruitment industry. While we utilize the new technology to our advantage, we also recognize the enduring value of networking. A whisper about a certain individual's suitability for a role may lead to a discreet phone call – and then a confidential meeting.

By maintaining and nurturing a book of close connections across the professional services sector, we can often put forward candidates that far exceed clients' expectations. No matter what kind of talent you require, our fast-growing team of 30 (speaking no less than 10 languages between them) can work with you on either a retained or a contingency basis to help you track down the change-makers your business needs.
