Students deciding their next steps for employment or education, and Islanders considering
a career change are encouraged to attend the Jersey Skills Show next week.
Following the success of last year’s hybrid event, which included an in-person event and
virtual talks, the Jersey Skills Show is back with a full week of events between Monday 10
to Friday 14 October.
All Islanders are welcome to drop into the networking event at Fort Regent on Friday, 14
October, between 3pm to 5pm.
What’s happening during the week?
Employers will be visiting several secondary schools over the course of the week to host
careers sessions giving students an insight into their sector. Students will also spend time
on the Jersey Skills Show website, supported by digital sponsors PwC, to take part in
various activities and watch videos from industries.
The website is designed as a career guide for Islanders to research business pages, with
information from different industry sectors. The website features videos including behind
the scenes tours and insights into various jobs. The website also includes CV and interview
tips along with downloadable career resources.
The week ends with the Jersey Skills Show event at Fort Regent, on Friday 14 October,
where students and Islanders will be able to chat with over 20 different exhibitors and
employers about career advice and educational routes available on Island.

Show is an excellent opportunity for students, young people, and Islanders to network with
local employers and learn about various career opportunities in Jersey.
“Schools have lots scheduled for the week, including talks from local employers and
activities on the Jersey Skills Show website. Students will also be going along to the
networking event at Fort Regent, and I encourage young people and parents, as well as
Islanders who are considering a career change to join.”
