Japan is the second largest market outside the US in the medical device industry, making it a very lucrative market. With the ageing population, the industry has become an even more vital part of society. With that, we make sure that our team has the capability to properly service our clients and candidates in all areas of medical device.

Our team has an outstanding network of client and candidates with various fields of expertise including vascular, orthopedics, respiratory/ventilation, and wound management. We work with some of the largest medical device companies in the industry as well as companies just beginning their entry into the Japanese market.

Our industry experience and expertise has earned us multiple awards include the Life Science Company of the Year award from Recruitment International.
