Japan burger chain to recruit part-timers in 5 languages

posted on June 20, 2016

Mos Food Services Inc., the operator of Mos Burger hamburger restaurants, in August will begin recruiting part-time workers in five languages via a special website.

The move is part of the chain's efforts to cope with an anticipated increase in the number of foreign visitors to the country ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The company hopes many foreign nationals living in Japan, including students, apply for part-time jobs.

Mos Food's special recruitment website for part-timers will start providing information in English, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese, as well as Japanese, in August. For Chinese, it will use both simplified and traditional Chinese.

Managers and certain other staff members of individual Mos Burger outlets will be able to post job-opening information in Japanese that will be automatically translated into the four other languages.

Mos Food will also prepare English, Chinese and Korean teaching materials to train new recruits.
