One in ten Japanese people already have a side job, and two in five seem to want to work in the future.

What kind of side business options do you have in Japan?

1)Apply for a company's side business recruitment

Recently, the number of cases in which companies are recruiting side-business personnel has increased. This is often a business consignment contract, not an employment. You can undertake work with a relatively high hourly wage.

2)Contribute to society through NPOs

If you are not looking for wages, it is a good idea to belong to an NPO and contribute to society. First of all, it seems that many NPOs accept from member registration.

3)Apply for the Pro Bono Project

If you want to show your expertise, not your income! If you want to contribute, the option of pro bono is also good. The service ground is the largest in Japan.

4)Find a part-time job

Finding a part-time job may be the easiest side job to work on. The hourly wage is about 1000 yen, but you will be asked to start a part-time job with insufficient manpower from tomorrow.

Please note that if you are employed by a Japanese company, your part-time job will be in double employment status. In this case, troublesome problems such as total working hours and handling in the event of an industrial accident occur. Therefore, it is necessary to note that each company does not have a very good impression.

5)Gig work

Gigwork is increasing all over the world as an easy way to work without being hired. There are various gigwork mediation platforms in Japan as well. You can also use this.

However, not being hired means that there is no compensation for occupational accidents or insurance, and this point needs to be understood.

Uber's home delivery is famous as a labor-related gig work.

For more specialized and higher hourly wages, you can use Coconala, Japan's largest C2C platform. However, since it is only in Japanese, it will be difficult to use if you cannot use Japanese.
