Recruitment Associate

Location: TOkyo


About the position

Wahl+Case helps the world’s most innovative companies grow and our team, no matter the role, makes an impact on our customers. We are extremely dedicated and driven to deliver the best service, defined by exceptional results.

Consultants at Wahl+Case are responsible for the full recruitment process for mid-career professionals. This includes sourcing and screening candidates, business development and account management of client accounts, negotiation of client contracts and candidate offers, and long-term relationship management, such as after-placement care.

Each team is specialized, with a focus on a particular segment or function within the tech industry, such as: advertising and consumer technology, enterprise technology, financial technology, web engineers and creative talent.

While it is essential to have the communication skills and emotional intelligence to build strong relationships, you will also need to have an underlying goal-orientation and the ability to overcome adversity. We will expect you to achieve your targets while delivering first-class service to your clients and candidates.

 You will have a lot of fun, our full support, and a lot of responsibility.

You are…

  • Commercial. You recognize opportunities and successfully execute solutions tailored to client needs with a high degree of professionalism; making placements and generating revenue.

  • Results driven. You have a track record of delivering consistent results, meeting and exceeding targets, and providing exceptional levels of customer service.

  • A Troubleshooter. You find elegant solutions to problems and see them through to completion.

  • Consultative. You have experience in value-added sales, whereby your customer is seeking professional advice rather than someone simply administering orders.

  • Persuasive. You are able to negotiate, influence and persuade; able to push back to your customers at the appropriate timing.

  • Capable. You have superior organizational skills, work with integrity and demonstrate great follow through on tasks. You don’t get overwhelmed easily.

  • Team-oriented. You share information openly and commit to not only your individual success, but to that of your teammates as well.

  • Naturally Curious. You’re innovative, creative and constantly looking for ways to improve upon things.

  • A Connector. You’re a charismatic people person who can talk to anyone; you’re flexible, fearless, and excited to help build something awesome and share it with the world.

  • Motivated. You understand the impact of a highly-satisfied, excited network of clients and candidates for Wahl+Case; you want to exceed your targets and advance your career.

  • Bilingual. You are confident using both English and Japanese in a business setting, including face-to-face meetings, over the phone, and written communication.

Your day

While there is some sense of routine, the day-to-day work of a Recruitment Consultant can vary considerably – no two days are exactly the same.

  • You will start off each morning with a team meeting and, with the exception of weekly catch-ups with your manager and a few other standing appointments, will move through the rest of your day according to your own priorities.

  • Key tasks include calls to candidates and clients, face-to-face meetings both in and out of our offices, conducting screenings and interview preparation, helping to coordinate interview arrangements, negotiating client contracts and candidate offers, and maintaining relevant documentation.

  • The environment is international and our main internal language is English.

Development opportunities

We believe in the importance of providing ongoing training and development opportunities to all members of the Wahl+Case team.

  • New starters take part in an extensive orientation program, designed to help consultants excel at all aspects of the recruitment process and begin working toward achieving their professional goals as quickly as possible.

  • We aim to promote from within and, as we are continuing to quickly grow our businesses, there are a variety of career paths available to our consultants.

  • After demonstrating your abilities as a consultant, you will have the option to continue focusing on building your own business area as an expert recruitment specialist.

  • If you are interested in people management, you can begin your progression as a team leader – eventually taking on full responsibility for the profitability and career development of the consultants in your team as a manager.

  • We also plan to continue expanding Wahl+Case’s global network and will look internally for the primary candidate pool when choosing a leader for new offices.
