Elliott Scott HR Launches into the Japanese Market

TOKYO, JAPAN, October 7, 2016 — Elliott Scott HR expand their service offering in Asia with the launch of a division focusing exclusively on the Japanese market.

Heading up this new division is Sakura Tomita, who joins the Elliott Scott HR team as Associate Director. Sakura has 6 years experience recruiting in the Japanese market, with a specialised focus covering the HR function across all levels. She has an in-depth understanding of both the local and regional hiring landscape in Japan, and is passionate about developing strong partnerships with both her clients and candidates. She will be based out of the Elliott Scott HR head office in Hong Kong.

“Asia Pacific remains a key region within the Elliott Scott growth strategy and with that in mind a Japan entity was always on the cards. We’ve actually had this on the agenda for a while now but the regulatory landscape meant we had to follow the right process in order to get our Japan recruitment license. Now that we have that firmly in place we are nicely set to help our clients in one of the most candidate short markets in the world.” Stuart Elliott, CEO and Owner.

“We’re always looking at ways to better support our clients in Asia. Many clients have expressed to us that Japan is the toughest market in Asia, and Sakura’s, as well as her team’s extensive knowledge is an opportunity for us to be able to offer broader coverage in this region.” Phillip Welburn, Managing Director, North-Asia.

“With my experience working in Japan specifically in HR recruitment, I’m looking forward to joining the Elliott Scott HR team in Hong Kong, and growing our presence in the Japan market. Utilising Elliott Scott’s regional and global relationships will give me a unique understanding of the overall hiring strategy of an organisation. This in turn will allow me to create stronger partnerships and provide better quality service to both candidates and clients alike, an approach which Elliott Scott has become known for around the globe.” Sakura Tomita, Associate Director.
