Nomura Securities To Recruit Midcareer Professionals
TOKYO (NQN)--Nomura Securities Co. plans to hire around 30 midcareer professionals in their 20s and 30s, starting as early as September.
Investment bankers offer companies advice on mergers and acquisitions, and underwrite public share offerings. This is the first time Nomura will hire such a large number of midcareer professionals at once. It is looking to bolster its workforce in response to growing client demand.
Those hired will specialize in areas such as corporate sales and bond underwriting. Nomura has traditionally hired several midcareer employees each year but recently, poor earnings have forced it to cut back. The upcoming hiring surge is meant to bring the company's personnel needs into line with demand.
Nomura will hire people with experience in nonfinancial sectors such as manufacturing, in addition to financial professionals.
