Fourth Valley

What we do

We are developing a global hiring support platform that transcends borders to connect companies with global talent. Our in-house database has 300,000 registered professionals from 136 countries. We conduct transactions with approximately 400 major global companies and IT companies in Japan. We also entered the Specified Skilled Worker field in 2019 and have been commissioned by central and regional governments to help solve Japan's chronic shortage of workers. By welcoming professional talent from countries with underemployment to Japan, which is facing a serious shortage of qualified personnel, we are using the power of business and technology to solve global issues in societies.


The flow of people around the world tends to be moving from countries with lower GDP per capita to those with higher ones. Economic benefits are a major factor in cross-border challenges.
When hiring professionals, the target countries and regions change with the times, prompting careful selection.

We have over a decade of experience in supporting the recruitment of foreign professionals and have combined this knowledge and experience with quantitative and qualitative data gathered from around the world to provide a unique method of matching the right candidate with your company and providing online and offline recruitment support in Japan and around the world.

We also provide a full range of services and consulting, including pre-hiring strategy and planning, the selection of target areas, as well as post-hiring settiling-in support and follow-ups.

Online Platform

Our online platform connects companies with talent from around the world through AI matching. It enables companies and candidates to connect directly with each other and matches candidates with the requirements of each party. It will automatically match the companies with the most suitable candidates from around the world.

Overseas Japanese language and vocational training centers

Excellent foreign human resources who can speak Japanese are rare. We provide Japanese language, cultural and vocational training in various countries to develop foreign human resources who can work and stay in Japan. We provide opportunities to work in Japan by providing Japanese language training for those with expertise in IT, machinery, services, and other fields.By selecting personnel with skills and expertise and providing them with Japanese language training in their home country, we make it possible to expand the pool of hiring candidates.

Government Projects

We specialize in supporting the acceptance and settling-in of foreign personnel from Japan and abroad. Utilizing the global market data collected and analyzed by our in-house think tank, the Next Generation Foreign Human Resources Research Institute, and our extensive experience and knowledge of foreign personnel recruitment support, we are proud of our top-level government project track record in Japan. We work with central and local governments to help solve the labor shortage across Japan by promoting the acceptance and settling-in of foreign human resources in Japan and contributing to the realization of a multicultural society.
