We are currently looking for a native English speaker to join us as Business Communications Manager. The job requires that you take a leading role in the development of our negotiating positions, based on a thorough review of ongoing matters with related personnel in the company. Together with your colleagues, you will review incoming communications each day, then draft responses while ensuring that our positions are balanced and take various viewpoints into consideration.
Aside from the regular communications, there will be opportunities to create presentations and participate in mid- and high-level meetings taking place in Japan and abroad with our business partners, and also overseas travel to supplier locations and large exhibitions, with a particular focus on Europe.
