Recruiting in JPAC can be tricky.

Your talent requirements are particularly challenging — candidates with a perfect blend of cross-cultural understanding, diverse workstyle, high level medical industry expertise and experience.

The problem is, there just isn’t a lot of these ideal candidates around, particularly in Japan.

In a job market dominated by domestic companies offering ‘jobs for life’, unemployment is extremely low and very few quality candidates are actively looking for a new job. You’re looking for a needle in a haystack.

When you recruit with Morunda, you’ll get:

Exclusive candidates

We have the largest database of healthcare workers in Japan and give you access to a unique and exceptional talent pool of not just job-hunters but people already in the market.

4 qualified candidates
in 4 weeks

We make an average of 500 outbound calls per week on your behalf and qualify candidates before providing you with excellent options. On average, one in three of our candidates is female.

From market entry
to growth

We have cracked the code for hiring in Japan and Asia and specialize in market entries. From clinical trial to launch we have the right candidates to ensure your success.

JPAC has a limited supply of bilingual candidates with a strong demand. Some positions may only have 28 qualified candidates.

At Morunda, we have access to every available candidate in the market.

We leverage our combined 60 years experience being based in Japan to give you confidence in hiring. We headhunt! One position may take hundreds of emails and hundreds of calls. We do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.

The success and failure of global organizations in JPAC depends on hiring decisions.

We help outsiders become insiders.
