IT Job with Top Investment Bank in Seoul

I work for a prestigious investment bank that is recruiting IT support staff for the equities trading floor in the heart of Seoul's business district. There are two positions open, they require hands-on support of a wide range of business-critical applications and leading-edge technologies. The roles are varied and dynamic, with the opportunity to manage projects and to be directly involved in IT procurement.

Both roles require good technical skills in a Windows desktop environment. Knowledge of Market Data Systems and Linux experience would be an advantage.
The candidates are also expected to be fluent in English and Korean and to have a good education to at least university degree level.

Please submit your resume here. I guarantee a response within 48 hours.
All applications will be treated with complete confidentiality.
Update: These positions are still available.

Hi Sanjeev
You don't specify what industry you are in.

I can only comment based on my experience from looking for a job in IT.

There are several good sites for searching for Jobs in Japan.
You can try

Some agencies that I have found to be very good are





You should submit your CV to these agencies and then phone and speak to the consultants to understand how they can help you.

The cost of living is much higher in Japan than Korea, so it can be difficult to save.

Good luck. It's going to be tough.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi David,
The position in Seoul is still open and we are interviewing.

However there is a hiring freeze at the moment, so as it stands currently you would not be taken on. This situation is expected to change within the next two months.

If you send me your CV I contact the hiring manager directly to take it further.
Do you speak Korean ?
