Success Stories

APAC Head of Supply Chain, Global Healthcare Company

Apex delivers strong profile and highly skilled candidates that match the job description requirements. Their candidate know how, network and experience helped us to initiate contact and integrate the candidate into our company. We are very happy with the candidate selected by Apex. K.K. consulting service. Thank you for the professional recruitment consulting service throughout the selection and follow up. We really appreciated it and strongly recommend Apex.


Analyst, American Investment Bank

This was my first time searching for a new job, as well as my first time switching from a Japanese company to a foreign company. I did not know what to expect at first but the Apex consultant I dealt with was very kind and helpful in answering my questions and accommodating my requests. I sincerely appreciate all of the support I received from Apex. I was able to find an ideal position earlier than I had expected, and am greatly satisfied with it. Apex supported me until the end and through the difficult moments in the process. I would definitely recommend Apex to any of my acquaintances who are looking for a new opportunity!


Controller, European Manufacturing Company

Without a doubt, Apex is the most caring and professional recruitment agency. They screened all job leads meticulously to match with my career goals and I appreciated that they gave me tons of tips and recommendations that were tailored to me during the interview process. I definitely recommend Apex for anyone who is interested in changing their career. Again, I really find myself lucky to have worked so closely with Apex.


Director, American Pharmaceutical Company

My Apex consultant really took the time to understand my situation and career goal and gave me meaningful advice. Other recruitment agencies only think of candidates as just “one of many” but my consultant made sure to give me a “one on one” consultation every time. Because of Apex, I was able to achieve more than my full ability.


Director, American Pharmaceutical Company

When I started to search for new opportunities, I was shown a lot of great information about different companies. It was great for me to have this information so I could better compare the various opportunities and companies. In my case, it took some time; however, Apex waited for my answer patiently and understood my situation. It really helped me a lot and finally, I felt confident in pursuing a new career opportunity through Apex.


President, European Medical Device Company

I was very pleased with Apex’s approach to help me find an opportunity that aligns with my career goals and not stick too much to my past experiences. Even though my career was in the ingredient and OTC businesses, I was provided with a number of interesting opportunities in completely different fields like I had wanted. One of the opportunities worked out very well as the company was looking for people who were new to the industry and had a well rounded experience. I am very glad that Apex was able to think outside of the box and value my career goals rather than just looking at my experience.


Representative Director, European Medical Device Company

When I was looking for new positions Apex very seriously tried to understand my needs and I very much appreciated that. The position of Representative Director seemed really challenging for me at first but I have no regrets of taking that leap and choosing my current company. I really appreciated Apex’s professional recommendation, support and generous help. Please continue to pursue your mission to help people find their future.


CEO and President, Global Medical Device Company

I strongly recommend Apex as a reliable and sincere agency that delivers results. I partnered with Apex when I was working for a large multinational corporation as a business unit head. When I started looking for opportunities outside of my company, they introduced me to many of their corporate clients. I went through several interviews with the companies the introduced to me. After some time, I was beginning to get discouraged however, they were constantly giving me the right advice and kept sending me new opportunities. As a result of their persistence, I was able to find a great position that was almost as if it were customized for my experiences and strengths.

I would recommend Apex because of their persistence combined with their great advice which really helped me in getting a great job. They gave me great advice regarding salary information and industry knowledge.


Head of HR, American Medical Device Company

Apex supported our recruitment needs when we were searching for a Marketing Manager. Because of Apex and especially the work of one of their great medical device consultants, we were able to complete the search quickly and with a top candidate. I would recommend Apex because of their commitment and their understanding of the Japan market.


Director, European Automotive Company

The Apex consultant I worked with was very professional and understands the needs of both the employer and candidates very well. I was impressed that they always kept in contact with me and was always fully prepared for me to go through the interview process, which I found immensely helpful. I would like to say a really big thank you for all the help.


Assistant Manager, European Automotive Company

Before I met Apex, I had several telephone interviews with other recruiters and they told me that based on my current situation my ideal position was unrealistic and I should be happy as long as I could find a position. At that time, I connected with Apex and they introduced me to a great position immediately.  They coordinated with the employer to have an interview with me as soon as possible so things moved very quickly. From the telephone interview to receiving the official offer, it took less than 3 weeks! Throughout the whole process, Apex was always with me and had full communication with me and the employer to make sure everything is went smoothly.

I would recommend Apex for his several advantages:
1) They do not tell me what I can do and what I can’t do like other recruiters. They simply support me and encourage me.
2) Before I had an interview with the company, I was very nervous and they gave me great advice that helped me a lot in passing the interview.
3) They listens to my requests and always tries to satisfy my requirements. I really appreciate their support.

Plant Controller, American Automotive Company

Apex can introduce unique and excellent positions which other agents cannot do. I asked other agents to introduce positions, but most of them were the same position in the same company, which means most other agencies can only introduce “open” positions which makes no difference between the agents.

Also, Apex doesn’t introduce so many positions at the same time, they carefully selected the suitable positions to the candidates and concentrate and focus on these a few positions to achieve a successful result. These are the reasons I recommend Apex to my friends who are looking for the new opportunities.


Manager, Life Science&Diagnostics Company

Apex understands the life sciences business well and knows up to date information about various new opportunities, they also have a great understanding of Japanese culture. Personally, the Apex consultant I met was polite, kind, and patient.


Senior Vice President, Global Life Science Company

We have enjoyed a very strong and productive relationship with one of the best consultants and his team of associates at Apex. They take the time to understand our needs. Apex has now placed four associates at our company in Japan and all are producing effectively within the system. At this time, Apex is also engaged in further searches for our company, both in our Tokyo and Osaka offices. We expect favorable results with these searches within a very short period of time. Working with the team at Apex is always very helpful to our needs.


Finance & Administration Manager, Global Life Science Company

I herewith confirm that we have been in a business relationship in the past with Apex K.K. for over three years. We are very satisfied with their recruitment consulting services and they have introduced two good highly skilled candidates, who have integrated well into our company and we are very thankful to Apex for introducing them to us.

We also appreciate the good and timely consulting support from the best consultant, especially their specific selection of good candidates according to our job description requirements and requests. Furthermore, we got some good background information and we feel that the candidate was well informed on our requirements as well. We also have had a good match of candidates in the past.
As a result, I very much recommend using Apex K.K.’s consulting services.


In-House Legal Counsel, European Pharmaceutical Company

When I was looking for new positions my Apex consultant was recommended to me as being a good person to talk to. It was very comfortable to talk with them because they were very polite and tried to fulfill my wishes and demands and did not try to force me to apply to any position which did not meet my wishes. They were honest, clear and supported me through the whole interview process.

Apex helped with the English interview and also gave me information about the company which was insightful. They are professional, supportive and also negotiated for me to get this opportunity. They are the best recruiters I have ever met. They responded to all of my requests which were very demanding.


General Counsel, European Global Financial Institution in Japan

The consultants with Apex are well-recognized recruitment professionals in Japan with particular strength in the areas of Legal and Compliance. In my capacity as General Counsel at a global financial institution in Japan, I have enjoyed working with them for a long time, and they have helped me fill vacancies with the right candidates. Their many years of in-depth experience, together with their integrity and prudent approach, make them ideal recruiters when you need to find a right candidate for a Legal/Compliance role. I know they are trusted by candidates too.


Accounting Manager, American Internet Company

Apex is a small agency, but the staff are very excellent. When I was contacted by Apex for the first time, to be honest, I thought that it was a typical scout mail. However, the consultants were very friendly and looked after me without giving up. The consultants also supported me with everything such as the companies’ information, the interview process, the application process and the final decision making. Overall, I am satisfied with Apex’s support. It was great to have one more consultant join the meetings so that we could share ideas. In my case, fortunately, I met 2 consultants and we could exchange ideas.


Senior Financial Analyst

The Apex consultant I spoke to did not only introduce me to a job that matched my experience/qualifications, but also thought through whether it would be a good fit for me and provided additional information such as why the company was hiring, and how the working environment was; this information was collected utilizing his private network. As my consultant gave consideration to the appropriate fit for the candidate, I feel unequivocal trust to my agent compared to others. Therefore I feel that I can continue to trust in Apex and build a relationship even after my job change.
