Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is Haken Employment
    It is the Japanese word for temporary employment, where a staffing agency, such as JMD Staffing, dispatches employees to client companies on a contract basis. While haken staff report to their supervisor at the company, they have an employment contract with the staffing agency. The staffing agency pays the employee’s salary and provides social benefits.
  • What are some of the benefits JMD Staffing provides?
    We provide a variety of benefits, including: • social and health insurance coverage • travel expenses • visa application sponsorships • Japanese or English translation/interpretation support • training in a variety of areas, such as IT, software, and language • support for obtaining certain certifications relating to career advancement
  • Can I become permanent employee after starting out on an taken contract?
    Yes. There is a chance that you could be asked to become a permanent employee at the client company. If that is something you would be interested in pursuing, Spotted Staffing will happily support you throughout the transition process.
  • What is temp-to-perm contract?
    It is a type of contract that starts out as haken and potentially leads to a permanent position in six months or less. It gives candidates the opportunity to experience work at a company and get a strong sense of its culture before possibly being offered a full-time role at the company.
  • How do I register with JMD Staffing
    After you give us some basic information about yourself — through our Contact page, by e-mail, or over the phone — a JMD Staffing consultant will set up a meeting with you to find out, in detail, about your work experience, your goals, and your expectations. We will also use the meeting to assess some of your skills. Registration is complete at the end of this meeting. We will then inform you about different positions, based on your interest and skill levels, as they become available. If you choose to apply for a position with a client company and are given an offer following an interview, you will then sign an employment contract with JMD Staffing and start working as a haken employee at the client company.
  • Can I register if I am a student?
    At JMD Staffing, we mostly support candidates with several years of work experience. We would ask that only mid-career jobseekers register.
  • What type of positions does JMD staffing specialise in filling
    At JMD Staffing, our focus is on skilled workers in the IT field — such as IT engineers, IT architects, program managers, product managers, and project managers — as well as back office staff. We work with both Japanese and non-Japanese client firms, so you may have a chance to use your English or Japanese language skills at the company where you are placed.
