Two major international healthcare companies currently have multiple open FP&A/Controlling positions in their Japan businesses. These companies can both offer exceptional opportunities for career development including overseas transfers for high performers.
One of the companies can offer highly competitive salaries, and the other one has a relaxed European work culture and excellent work-life balance.
Both these companies have offices in central Tokyo, but of course now all their staff at working from home. Flexible work options will remain at these companies after the pandemic.
All these roles will involve financial analysis and business partnering for specific product lines. A strong foundation in accounting is required, but the core of the work will be FP&A.
All these roles require native-level Japanese and business-level English. Qualifications such as USCPA or MBA are significant advantages. Healthcare industry experience is an advantage but not required.
None of these roles manage staff. These roles would be a good next move for someone early in their career who already has solid accounting experience and strong hands-on FP&A experience.
