A labor shortage in Japan is opening the doors for skilled agricultural workers from abroad. The country is hoping to improve productivity in three special economic zones as native farmers are retiring at fast speeds. Immigrants to the country already pick crops and have other small jobs on the farms under a government-endorsed technical training program. But unlike these workers, applicants wanting to work in the special zones will be required to have at least one year of agricultural experience behind them. If you are willing to relocate for a job opportunity, submit your resume to Jobs Across the World. Their team of experts will match your skillset with the perfect position and company for you. It doesn’t matter where the company is located or where you currently live.
The government will be enlisting help from staffing agencies to recruit eligible workers. The newly hired staff will be assigned to local farming businesses and mostly be from Asia. Those applying must be at least 18 years of age and have enough Japanese-language skills to be able to do the job. Jobs Across the World will match your resume with an open position. You simply submit your resume and wait on a call from a company ready to hire.
Niigata, one of the three select regions seeking agricultural workers, produces more rice than anywhere else in the country. Aichi, a part of Japan’s automotive industry heartland, is a leading cabbage producer, and Kyoto Prefecture is known for their tea and pears. The hires will be able to work in Japan for three years, dividing up the time as they want. They will be allowed to work in sales and processing and will be assured to be paid the same as their Japanese co-workers. They will not be allowed to be overworked due to the yearly capping of work hours. Japan is considering foreign labor in other fields due to staff shortages. Once you submit your application to Jobs Across the World, the process of matching you with the perfect job begins. Companies have access to all resumes that match their needs and will contact you with a job offer.
