Work in Japan – Hospitality and service industry jobs on GaijinPot

February 28th, 2011By Category: Work Tips

GaijinPot Jobs is a place for companies in Japan looking to find the best people to fill their positions, and every week we like to bring awareness to a field of work that you might not have thought about before.

In this week’s edition, we are featuring three positions in the hospitality sector. A number of the big international hotels and resort chains have opened up operations in Japan and they join a lively group of small and medium-sized enterprises. With more and more foreign visitors coming to Japan and a drop-off in domestic travel, there is also a growing trend of Japanese companies recruiting foreign staff.

With Japan’s world-beating service quality and the many traditions around the service sector, working in this area can be challenging, but salaries are often higher than compared to those found elsewhere in the world. You can also be assured that, if you survive in Japan’s service industry, then you will survive anywhere.

For those looking at breaking into a career in hospitality in Japan, here is a list of the latest jobs on the site this week.
