About the Role

The Company:

Our client is a growing tech-forward hospitality business founded in Japan looking to redefine the travel experience in Japan for independent travellers. They have grown substantially these past few years and there is now a need for the organisation to mature. As such, they're looking for a Chief of Staff to join them on this next phase. 

The Role:

You would be part of an evolving business that merges two powerhouses of industry on the backend: Real Estate and Technology; a blend of the traditional and the future. 

Core responsibilities here include:

1) Holding CFO-level responsibilities, including Financial Planning and Controlling
2) Overseeing backend operations to drive efficiency 

You will be in a key strategic role within the organisation, optimising their efficiencies as they shape themselves for what is next to come, working with and bringing onboard investors as they pour more money into the Japanese market. At this moment, the organisation has over US$50M in assets under management. 

Beyond the basics:

This role is ideal for someone who enjoys applying commercial strategy to financial operations while engaging with investors - who often come with "Type-A personalities". Their internal culture is frank, open, and diverse - a rarity in Japan in and of itself. 

Note: Fluency in Japanese is a requirement for the role
