About Us

We understand how difficult recruiting can be in Japan and Asia.

In Japan and APAC there are unique challenges when searching for the right talent. These difficulties are particularly felt by multinational companies entering into the market.

At Morunda, we are here to make recruiting simple.

We do that by helping outsiders become insiders.

Our combined 75 years experience of living in Japan allows us to give you a masterful understanding of the healthcare hiring landscape.

We get the job done so you can do what you do best!
