English A Better Career

A Better Career Initiative

We are currently promoting an initiative to create an open culture where diverse human resources can play an active role, and an environment where they can continue to work. If you have left the company for unavoidable reasons such as marriage, childbirth, childcare, or nursing care, or for career advancement such as changing jobs or studying abroad, we would like to invite you to rejoin Panasonic and utilize your knowledge, experience, and skills you have gained inside and outside the company. We are looking forward to your application.

Acceptance of employees with comeback careers

In addition to our Re-employment Program, in order to support diverse career options, we expand the acceptance of employees with comeback careers, who once joined Panasonic, gained other career experience, and then returned to Panasonic.
