Specialized Group definitely has excellent teams who were able to help us reach our target market. We have enjoyed working with Specialized Group; they tried their hardest to understand what characteristics we wanted in a candidate. Specialized Group were very honest and active in communicating with both the candidates and us in a timely manner. We were able to feel very confident throughout the whole recruiting process. We would love to work with Specialized Group again.
Daniel Biggs, our Specialized Group recruiter, found the perfect candidate for us in a very timely manner, he was professional and diligent during the entire process. Thank you, Daniel.
The Red Planet group operates in 4 countries around the world. Japan is the most challenging in terms of recruitment as we are growing rapidly in the country. We use recruitment agencies for highly specific positions, and I like working with Specialized Group as they are very active and excellent at following-up. I also appreciate their flexibility and advice as part of providing a more efficient recruitment process.
Thanks to Specialized Group, I was able to complete the hiring process safely. It was a really big help.
They are faster and were able to understand our needs better than other recruiters. By introducing perfect candidates, we were able to proceed smoothly to the final selection. I had a little hard work, but I was encouraged by the situation. I think that this success would not have been possible without Kafung. In the future, our recruitment will increase across various positions, I would like Kafung to be in charge again. I look forward to working with Kafung and Specialized Group.
Kafung, our recruitment consultant, has been very helpful. He understands our needs and can help you find the right candidate faster than anyone else.
I work with several agents in searching for various human resources, but Kafung's responsiveness is by far the best.
I was looking for the right talent for our position, so I was glad I connected with Kafung. I look forward to working with him in the future.
I have been hiring, through headhunting, on an international basis for over 25 years. The professionalism, easy facilitation of headcount search, and interview process with top candidates was BENCHMARK! Specialized Group organized it all in such a short period of time.
Special thanks to Paul Bridenbaugh, who made us feel comfortable and confident from the very first meeting. The team was very flexible in adjusting the contract according to our needs. I will recommend your organization to any other company searching for employees or contractors in Japan.
I wanted to thank you for the professionalism you demonstrated with the search, planning, and in conducting the interviews. It has been an excellent experience for us! We will definitely recommend your services and get back to you if we have a further need in the future.
It has been a thoroughly professional experience working with Specialized Group. Their detailed understanding of the requirements empowered them to provide candidates with a fantastic fit. Their quick response to any changes in the requirements or schedules is outstanding.
This project was a difficult one due to various reasons. I was introduced to a very good person, but there was a delay in getting the offer finalized. During that time, Joseph Oller frequently contacted the candidate and updated him on the situation, so the candidate could understand the delay. I think I will be working with Specialized Group again soon. It was a really nice experience.
Specialized Group helped us with our needs in hiring an RAQA Manager. Their consultant, Paul Bridenbaugh, helped find the right candidates that fit our business and our company culture. Paul is friendly, professional, and very quick to follow up. We are pleased with the results and recommend Specialized Group to anyone for their recruitment needs.
I have developed a professional relationship with Specialized Group over the past 10 years. I am very satisfied with their recruitment consulting services. They have introduced us to highly skilled candidates, who have integrated well into our company. We appreciate the introductions.
I also appreciated the support of the consulting team, Ms. Chikako Uchino, and Monsieur Emmanuel Pistone, they are very capable and reliable consultants. Thank you both.
Specialized Group has been a great partner for our company in hiring IT, Finance, and HR Talent in Japan. Their consultants are friendly, supportive and professional. They go the extra step to understand not just our requirements but the company’s future and the culture. We are glad to have them as our recruiting partner and would recommend them.
Daniel and his colleagues at Specialized Group are some of the most dedicated and trustworthy professionals out there in the recruitment industry. Not only did they help us successfully hire a vital HR position for the business, Daniel was always available with timely updates, relevant candidate introductions, and suitable advice. I look forward to continuously working with them.
My consultant, Grace Wang, was always responding to me very quickly in a professional manner. I am grateful for her support. She understood my needs properly and provided me with a good set of details from candidate introduction to the final closing. She is such a trustworthy recruitment consultant and I would love to work with her again.
As a venture in fast-growing pace, it's challenging and essential to recruit the right candidates. WIth Kafung's professional and linguistics skills, he has always done the magic to source the right candidate and delivers the candidate with the right opportunities. I wish I have met him when I was looking for a job and I am glad now that he is our recruiting consultant instead of our competitors'. WIth Kafung's support, we are lucky to be able to spend more time on business development than hiring.
The role we are looking to hire is a difficult one, it requires both superior analytical skills and strong business partnering experiences. Joe has been amazing in connecting us with many strong candidates in the market, which we struggled to find on our own. In the end, we successfully closed the case much faster that we thought, all thanks to Joe's strong network and quick grasp on what talent our business needs. I can't thank him enough!
In a word, I got impressed by your ardent attitude to introduce possible candidates to us. In fact, I didn't see any staff agent who introduced so many candidates during the short period. In addition, though I think it must be one of the strong points of your firm, all the candidates were supposed to have English proficiency at least at some business level.
Anyway, thank you so much for your work again. I really appreciate your dedicated and professional work.
Our requirements for the candidate are rather high (IT experience, bilingual, and team spirit). Specialized group works for/with us with their professionalism and sincerity. Our contact person understands what we are looking for. Recently Specialized Group helped us to recruit one system engineer and one PM-PMO. Both of them are perfect bilingual and highly motivated.
It’s a pleasure to work with Emmanuel Pistone, our account manager. He has been very proactively searching candidate for us in various channels, also quickly adjusted the search based on our feedback of candidates. No doubt that I will recommend Emmanuel on his great work!
Specialized Group introduced us to the right person in a timely manner and provided us with flexible support, including additional interviews. I think they deeply understood our company and our needs for human resources. The quick response allowed us to coordinate the interview process smoothly.
Working with Specialized Group has been a pleasure - I am grateful to have partnered with Chris who has proven to be a persistent recruiter who is adaptable and proven to be a good listener. He has helped greatly as well throughout the candidate process and it has been a pleasant experience for all parties involved. We look forward to work with him and Specialized Group for future roles.
Kafung helped Red Planet Japan to recruit a Project Manager. During this recruitment process, the Covid-19 outbreak have hit our business and Kafung has been a very good help to adapt the recruitment to this new situation. Finally, and thanks to Kafung, we have been able to find the right candidate despite the crisis situation. Kafung listened carefully our need for the role and did a very good follow up during the whole process.
Thank you, Jordin, for all your efforts on our important hiring. Our finance team has also appreciated you...even though we are under difficult circumstances. You always maintain a positive perspective, and even though our offer did not meet her expectations on salary, you made it happen. We could not thank you enough for that.
Chris is a responsive consultant who always did a lot of efforts to source and introduce relevant talents for our open positions. He can adapt quickly to sudden business changes that affect the recruitment priorities and he has always shown a positive attitude to support our hiring activities. It’s a real pleasure to work with such a reliable agent.
I have worked with Chris-san for three positions this year, and I appreciate his prompt responses and thorough and consistent support whenever. It has been very comfortable for me to consult him about our search, and I hope to continue our partnership with Chris-san and Specialized Group for our future search.
It was a real pleasure working with Steven Wan-san and we are so grateful for his continuous support and dedication. He has been always so accurate and timely providing appropriate information and very good at not only communicating between candidate and us but also to be a bridge among us. We are so glad to the outcome and looking forward to continuing our partnership for our mid-career recruiting.
Steven Wan accurately understood the character, experience, knowledge, educational background, etc. that we are looking for in a short period of time, and quickly introduced candidates. I am grateful that I was able to close a position that had been open for a long time.
I have worked closely with Chris from Specialized Group, and the whole experience has been great. Chris was very flexible and listens carefully as to what kind of candidates we are looking for. Chris has managed to submit a candidate in a very short time span. Not only is he a quick responder, but he is able to bring the right candidate in a timely manner. I look forward to working with Chris and Specialized Group in the near future.
It was nice working with a Specialized Group, especially with Steve. The support Steve provided was very professional, helpful and made every step smooth. We could hire a very good candidate within a short period of time. Steve managed the candidate expectation very well and he gave us very useful advice to improve. We are looking forward to working with you more!
We have used many professional recruiting services all over Asia, including the big name ones. Specialized Group provided the best level of quality and professionalism. Andrea Qu was extremely diligent and communicative. In the end she found us the perfect candidate. Thanks Specialized!
