Tadayoshi Tazaki (founder) established JAC Recruitment in London to support the recruitment process of Japanese companies expanding overseas

The business started in a corner of the accounting office on the 2nd floor of a Japanese food supermarket in the suburbs of London. In 1981, Hiromi Tazaki, the current chairman, joined the company.

The recruitment business was not yet commonplace in the 1970s, and few Japanese people knew the word "Employment Agent".
