Introduction of KIZASHI

Our company is a retainer-based executive search firm specialized in search for management, executives and professionals.

We search and introduce personnel for our corporate clients upon request. We form a project team by assigning experienced consultant with expertise in the client’s specified area to find professionals and corporate executives in management after concluding the retainer contract for recruitment.

Our candidates are not selected from a pool of job seekers; we directly approach successful professionals in their current positions, and evaluate their experience and skill set as well as compatibility and chemistry between their values and goals and the client company.

In order to introduce the best suited candidates for the position and to fulfill the needs of the client company, we receive a retainer fee at conclusion of our contract. All of our search activities are committed towards the successful outcome of the search assignment.

Origin of Our Company Name, KIZASHI

When a company achieves a rapid advancement, there is an opportunity for the human capital to be put in place. We decided to name our company “KIZASHI” by setting our corporate mission to create “kizashi (a sign of successful future)” for development and growth of corporations and business professionals that are determined to proactively create their future path without being passive.

>The kanji character for “KIZASHI -兆-” comes from the ancient Chinese character, which represents tortoiseshell used in fortune telling.
