Japan-based classifieds and marketplaces operator Zigexn Inc. has acquired recruiting business Struct, which specializes in recruitment in the construction industry.
Acquired for an undisclosed sum, Struct operates from Kensetsu-jobs.struct-inc.co.jp.
Established two years ago, Struct sends job offers to users who are registered with Kensetsu-Jobs, which lists 6,820 jobs related to civil engineering, electrical and pipe works. Work consultation bears no fees. The startup has a share capital of Y10 million, according to a company’s announcement.
Zigexn Inc., founded in June 2006 and headquartered in Tokyo, is already involved in recruitment through healthcare and beauty job site operator ReJob, job aggregator Arubaito-ex.jp and HR consultation services.
The company plans to further strengthen its HR vertical, which is its mainstay business and accounts for almost half of its revenue.
