Chairman and Managing Director
JAC Recruitment Co., Ltd.

“Over its more than four decades in business, JAC Recruitment has achieved growth to the extent that it now operates 24 offices in 11 countries worldwide. We have been persistently contributing to the development of both enterprises and professionals since our beginnings in London engaging in the personnel placement business with the aim of helping Japanese enterprises entering the British market expand their operations. We have achieved such success thanks to all of our employees who have paved the way for growth of JAC Group companies worldwide in part by embracing JAC Recruitment’s management philosophy of connecting people and businesses in a way that contributes to their growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about substantial changes internationally. Not only has it culminated in transformations with respect to human resource needs, work arrangements, and people’s values, but it has also presented opportunities for the JAC Group to contemplate its approach to growth over its next stage of business development. Going forward, we seek to build on our operations underpinned by our medium to long-term growth strategy, which will entail forging ahead with measures and reforms that address changes on the horizon such as those in the realm of digital transformation (DX) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We accordingly aim to achieve growth by expanding our operations as a result of consistently providing outstanding service backed by our unwavering mission of helping to propel economic and social development by connecting people and businesses amidst our drastically changing world.”
