The Embarc story commenced in London, at the end of the last Millennium with Karl Caldeira employed as a Technology recruitment consultant for Verity TMC servicing LCH (The London Clearing House), as well as Blue Chip companies, and unique to the time, Dot Com start ups. During this period, companies were frantically scrambling to upgrade realtime IT systems in order to avoid the Y2K crash. These were boom years for the IT Industry.
The Tech crash followed in the early 2000s providing an opportunity for Karl to invest his personal time studying Network Infrastructure and Solutions, giving him even greater exposure to the world of IT. He then encountered an opportunity to relocate to Japan and naturally focused on his area of expertise in technical recruiting. At that time the standard of English in bilingual recruiting was lower than today. The market was largely dominated by local firms with multinationals experiencing difficulty in penetrating this attractive market.
He then joined one of the few local businesses introducing bilingual tech-talent to multinationals, and spent the next few years honing his tradecraft to the unique demands of the Japanese market. It was around this time that Karl identified a gap in the market and partnered up with a colleague to establish TMC Japan. Over the next 12 years TMC blossomed to become a well respected local player positioned attractively between the multinationals and Japanese domestic agencies.
Over the years TMC garnered many successful industry awards and was well respected by their peers and competitors. The business also chose to explore different models of recruitment styles, ranging from boutique head-hunting to overseeing large recruitment teams, finally settling on a mid sized business-concern focused solely on the IT technology sector.
In 2014 the partners chose to explore different business ventures, and the business was wound down with a relaunch and rebrand taking place. Karl wanted to reengineer the new business Embarc Staffing Solutions to explore a customer centric approach, with a Partnership Program supported by both local and remote sourcing and consulting teams, utilizing the latest cloud technology and online recruitment tools.
Today Embarc works with a global network of consultants servicing the Japanese, Hong Kong and London markets with key industry-specific personnel based in each of these respective countries.
