Increased demand for Japanese speakers in financial services

Increased demand for Japanese speakers in financial services
 
The demand for staff with Japanese language skills has increased rapidly in the financial services sector, thats according to Euro London Appointments. The specialist multilingual recruiter has registered four times more vacancies requiring Japanese in quarter three of 2010 than during the first two quarters.
 
As businesses slowly but surely recover from the global financial crisis, and with the strength of the Yen encouraging more companies to invest in Europe, we are seeing a lot of companies in the financial services sector beginning to hire again comments Managing Director, David Shacklock. We are seeing a demand for client facing roles, a clear indication that this sector is recovering. The roles we are recruiting for are very much determined by the stability of the market, to see so many positions coming our way in the financial services sector is only good news.
 
Japanese companies are not just looking for employees that can speak the language equally as important is the ability to understand the culture and the way business operates says David Shacklock. Whilst companies may be keen to hire Japanese speakers it is vital that the candidate understands the pace of business in Japan and also how to interact with people. There is a well known story of a multi million pound business deal in which an American supplier did not present business cards to Japanese managers in the correct manner, and toyed with them throughout the meeting. A major sign of disrespect in Japanese business culture, the deal fell through! It is important therefore for applicants to understand a countrys culture just speaking a language will not always get you the job.
