Employment Agency Opens Here Soon For Narita Airport

An Employment Agency facilitate the recruitments of Fijian nationals to work in in and around Tokyo’s Narita International Airport will begin its operation from January 2.

The Agency, or Business Employment Centre, will be operated by the Free Bird Institute Limited (FBL).

This follows the approval from the Ministry of Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations that was announced on Saturday.

The application was made by FBL as a result of the Mutual Services Agreement that it entered into with the Narita Airport Business Company Limited (NAAB) in September.

NAAB is a limited liability company that is registered in Japan.

It is a fully owned subsidiary of the Narita International Airport Corporation (NAA).

Its core business is to provide lounge reception and baggage cart services in the passenger terminals at the Narita international Airport.

In a statement released by FBL in November, it stated that corporations in and around the international airport, including NAAB, are experiencing difficulties in sourcing enough English-speaking staff.

Therefore, FBL’s assistance will not only provide our locals with more job opportunities but address NAAB’s shortage of human resources.

With the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Summer Olympics that will be held in Japan, the demand for English speaking employees is  eminent, especially around the Narita International Airport.

FBL’s executive director and chief financial officer, Waisale Iowane said that this a great milestone and achievement for the company as the benefits arising out of the Mutual Services Agreement with NAAB has a ripple effect.

“This is a great and exciting opportunity for Fiji Citizens to work abroad with a chance to gain international exposure.

“Not only will this opportunity benefit them, it will also benefit their families and Fiji as a country as we have read in the Reserve Bank of Fiji reports that personal remittances has been the second largest foreign exchange earner for Fiji since 2004,” added Mr Iowane.

With the new agency established, FBL will be able to assist NAAB with the recruitment of these personnel.

This includes preparation of visa applications, lodgements, bookings of airline tickets, processing of suitable candidates and related local and overseas recruitment activities and advertisements in the paper.
