About rightpersOn KOREA
Message from the Representative Director, Simon S. Kim
It is my pleasure to introduce rightpersOn services to Korea.
rightpersOn KOREA inherited its business from a multinational recruitment company that opened its Korean offices
in December 2012. An integral part of the company’s strategy was to expand worldwide and particularly in the Asia-
Pacific region and Korean office opened in the region after establishing offices in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and
Australia. rightpersOn KOREA grew from this company and eventually became an independent consulting
recruitment agency. Despite our independence, though, we have maintained the previous company’s way of doing
business, its philosophy, and its orientation toward global culture, and we will continue serving clients and candidates
we have worked with over the last five years.
Korea is recognized as one of the world’s most vibrant economies and offers endless opportunities to both companies and professionals. RIGHTPERSON KOREA is committed to meeting the needs of corporate leaders and talented professionals in this strong, competitive business environment.
With the relaunch of the Korean office, we hope to further enhance our record of success in both Korea and the region by fitting the recruiting requirements of our clients to the right candidates. We will continue partnering with regional businesses who have firmly established themselves in the region as trusted partners for the world’s market leaders in the most competitive markets. We, rightpersOn KOREA, with the know-how and proven success of our previous company, are privileged to continue providing our renowned service in the recruitment industry.
At the core of our mission are three values: Performance, Professionalism and Personal Trust. We strongly believe these core values are crucial elements in the formula of success for both companies and professionals. With our deep insight into both people and business practices, we will provide you with customized services to meet your diverse requirements, grow your businesses, and further develop your careers.
Whether strengthening your organization or preparing for your next career challenge, we are here to help. Our team of experienced consultants at rightpersOn KOREA looks forward to working with you to match the right person with the right position.
