Please tell us a bit
about your company.
Wall Street Associates is one of Asia's leading and fastest growing human capital
management consultancies. Founded in 1997, Wall Street Associates currently has offices in
Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore, with plans to expand into other Asian markets over the
next few years. Offering a service that is always professional, confidential and
dedicated, Wall Street Associates specializes in four key areas: Wall Street Finance
places candidates with leading investment, retail and commercial banks, plus international
securities and fund management houses. We also place candidates across industry and
commerce. Wall Street Technology comprises two main divisions: IT Banking & Finance
and Telecommunications & IT Vendors. Between the two, we place candidates with
e-businesses, IT firms and telecommunication companies, in addition to organizations in
banking, finance, industry and commerce. Wall Street Legal Futures places candidates with
international law firms, leading investment banks, and organizations across industry and
commerce. In addition to sales and marketing appointments, Wall Street Professional
Services specializes in strategic, operation management and HR consultancy placements. We
place candidates with management consultancies, financial institutions and organizations
across industry and commerce.
What makes your company different from the rest?
Wall Street Associates offers a service above and beyond our competitors. Our consultants
are of the highest caliber and are generally qualified in the area they recruit in. For
instance, our entire legal team is comprised of formally practicing lawyers. This enables
us to understand what it is like to be a candidate in these areas and we are able to give
educated advice where necessary. Most of our consultants are also bilingual and are
comfortable to conduct interviews in either Japanese or English.
With concentration on the finance industry, we are able to focus on market movements and
are knowledgeable on the specific areas we represent. This narrow focus has also enabled
us to enroll the best industry contacts in Tokyo and around the world.
Our vision is to become a world-class human capital management group with a global
presence and an unparalleled reputation for professionalism, delivering superior results
and integrity. We aim to create and maintain a sustainable competitive advantage by
effectively harnessing the knowledge, people, talent and technology available to us so as
to provide the best services possible.
Our unique service has been officially recognized by the renowned research group The
Economist Intelligence Unit, which named Wall Street Associates Asia's Best Executive
Recruitment Firm in Financial Control and Information Technology.
How would you describe the ideal candidate?
Our ideal candidate is bilingual, educated and preferably has experience in the banking
industry. We represent some of the world's leading multinational financial institutions
that compete for Tokyo's most qualified individuals. Therefore, we seek candidates from
backgrounds in law, information technology and finance who are looking to develop their
career. Wall Street Associates' network of industry contacts will ensure that you are open
to Tokyo's best job opportunities.
