Hays Quarterly Hotspots: Hot Jobs This Quarter
Tokyo, Apr 18, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - IT professionals, Web Developers and FP&A Managers are among the candidates in hottest demand this quarter, with a strong emphasis on candidates who possess bilingual skills, according to the latest Hays Quarterly Hotspots.
According to the Quarterly Hotspots, out now and covering April to June 2013, pockets of shortages for specific skills remain in a number of sectors including IT and accountancy and finance.
"As the Japanese market is opening up to e-commerce on the same scale as the US and Europe, businesses are looking to maximize returns through this sales stream, creating a strong demand for IT professional and web developers," says Jonathan Sampson, Regional Director of Hays in Japan.
Demand for certain candidates this quarter is yet again largely driven by the lack of bilingual talent in Japan - now a standard pre-requisite across many sectors.
"For example, there are not enough bilingual candidates in Japan to supply the demand for FP&As with good English and communication skills. Many companies are looking for these candidates and when good candidates come onto the market employers will need to be competitive to secure them," says Jonathan.

Accountancy & Finance - Commerce & Industry -- FP&A Managers -- FP&A Staff -- Accountants -- Controllers -- Tax Specialists
