10 Of The Highest Paying Jobs In Japan In 2022

10 Of The Highest Paying Jobs In Japan In 2022
Submitted by Vipin on Wed, 12/15/2021 - 10:43

Using the data from our 2022 Salary Guide, we have outlined some of the highest paying jobs in Japan this year.

Demand to hire has been high across pretty much every industry and function, and has been since the end of 2020. The lack of proactive jobseekers during that time has made it challenging for a number of employers to secure the talent they need.

“Salaries have stayed relatively consistent, which is somewhat surprising given the shortage of jobseekers in the market. As ever, in high demand areas, particularly the revenue generation functions or those with highly technical skill sets, have been able to secure substantial increases when making the decision to move companies.” - Lionel Kaidatzis | Managing Director, Morgan McKinley Japan
