THEN READ ON!
Capitalizing on a record year for sales, CSJ is hiring for several new positions on our Supply Chain Management (SCM) recruiting desk!
The Recruiting Consultant (high volume, high quality sales role) will develop their own network of candidates & clients and take ownership of the entire recruiting process. This is a great opportunity to gain sales and consulting experience through hands-on training in an international, professional and team-oriented office. You will work closely with the Managing Director (American with 15+ years recruiting experience in Tokyo) and Senior Director (5+ years with Career Scout Japan) on our well-established supply chain and logistics recruiting desk. Feel free to check us out on Linked In.
What you can expect at CSJ:
- Warm desk: existing clients (hundreds of contracts) and candidates ready to help with matching
- Teamwork: you'll be developing clients with the support of a TEAM, including other specialisms (think "pack hunting" instead of "lone-wolf"). The senpai on the SCM desk is the top biller for CSJ and a seasoned veteran. Your senior recruiters will have your back and help you grow.
- Volume: Multiple candidate and client prospecting / sourcing telephone calls per day with high emphasis on customer service and respect to Japanese business practices
- Creative working environment: Are you good on camera? You will be even better at CSJ. We use video for our business development and prospecting calls. Also, we invest HEAVILY in marketing and co-branding with consultants to get your name well-known and bring in candidates and clients.
- Big Respect for Japan: Half our office is non-Japanese, but ALL of us have huge respect and love for Japan. We spend time learning the language and culture and adhere to Japanese business practices to ensure we are good citizens.
- Competitive base salary and individual achievement commission: We have deep pockets from consistent retained profits. We are ready to invest in bonuses and salaries for true sales hunters. Our individual achievement commission structure is transparent (no opaque “manager discretion” commission calculations).
- Co-branding: Seen our manga job ads? CSJ believes in co-branding with consultants. The consultant is everything, we allocate marketing budget to build the brands of our people, and not make it just about the company.
What not to expect:
- Eikaiwa-like job where you receive the same pay regardless of output. We expect excellent results from our consultants and constant focus on improvement, we'll reward you handsomely.
- A job where work / life balance supersedes meeting commitments to candidates and clients. We want our consultants to take satisfaction in working hard and providing first-class customer service.
- A job where you spend all day looking at Linked In or other social media. Relationships are built through face to face or phone communication.
- A locker room / boiler room or unprofessional environment. We expect our consultants to treat one another with respect and dress for success. Think "Goldman Sachs" rather than "Wolf of Wall Street."
- A 9 to 5 commitment. We expect our consultants to continue their development / growth outside of the office to be a better recruiter and better member of Japanese society. We will support excellent consultants' development endeavors as well.
