Reporting directly to the CEO of the Japan business, the CHRO will be responsible for ground up HR structuring, working with the leadership team in order to create the company culture and shape the mission and vision of success in Japan. The CHRO will work closely with the existing talent team to eventually build out a full-fledged HR function in Japan consisting of all HR facets, with professional and qualified HR individuals. If successful, this role will lead a robust HR team of 20 to 30 members looking after a staff population of over 2,000 employees.
