Employment as an ATC in Japan from Britan

I was wondering what the recruitment philosophies into ATC are over in Japan, I realise that due to the English language requirement that there may be a slightly higher demand for international immigrants interested in working as an Air Traffic Controller in a country that has a small amount of English speakers; such as Japan. Is this the case at all?

Would the training follow similarly as it does in the EU? For example you can be employed if you are properly qualified and hold an APP/ADI etc from a body within your native country. However a clause in the employment would state that a "conversion course", so to speak, would be required.

Would employment go through each airport individually or do they have a similar system to NATS where most airports are covered by an external company?

I speak a small amount of Japanese and would relish the chance to become employed there. Finding information out about the career paths to get there, however, is proving difficult and I hope someone here can offer me advice.

Thank you in advance.

Hmmm, you're asking about Japan ATC in this section of PPRuNe. It might have Pacific in the title, but it doesn't include anything much north of the equator. You are very unlikely to get an answer here. Perhaps try the ATC section.

Japan has a "small amount of English speakers?" ...The Japanese are well-schooled in English and wouldn't commit that grammatical faux pas!

ATC in Japan is national public service by only national public officers.
No chance to get ATC job in Japan, unless you are Japanese.
