Recruit Holdings eyes foreign students for temp jobs

Recruit Staffing plans to give foreign students temp-work options, which usually offer better pay.

TOKYO -- A Recruit Holdings subsidiary is developing Japan's first full-fledged platform allowing international students to register as temp workers, as the business seeks to tap growing demand for strong language skills from retailers and other employers.

Recruit Staffing aims to register 1,500 students by the fiscal year-end in March, in partnership with housing rental guarantor Global Trust Networks. Global Trust works with five universities, including Kyoto University, and serves about 20,000 students. It will ask students after securing their housing whether they want to work in Japan, encouraging those who do to register on Recruit Staffing's website.
