In Session 3 2019, Johnson & Johnson Japan offered two placements, one being finance/accounting focused and one being engineering focused. Please ensure that you read the description and table below to understand the activity and unit relationship.

Engineering activity

The student will be based with Johnson & Johnson’s Customer Service and Logistics Service Department and will support all 3 divisions of the company: medical devises, pharmaceutical products and other health related products. This will involve working at its Tokyo headquarters as well as its warehouse in Haneda.


The objective of this activity will be to optimize performance at the warehouse, taking into consideration the role and interplay of its staff, machines and systems. The expected outcomes will include proposal of opportunities that would optimise performance at the warehouse, and recommendations to implement for the future.


The successful student will be a highly motivated individual who is driven to take advantage of this opportunity.
