Statistics Jersey have released the latest Actively Seeking Work report (ASW), which reveals
that 610 jobseekers are registered as actively seeking work.
This number continues to be at the
lowest levels since records began in 2011.
While it is still a challenging time for some businesses, the employment market remains strong with
many opportunities across all sectors. The Back to Work team is available to support qualified
Islanders seeking work with:
- A dedicated advisor with one-to-one support and coaching from trained employment
- Proactive job-matching with the Back to Work recruitment team
- Employment incentives and paid training schemes
- Foundations – a supported work programme run by Back to Work to increase skills and
employability through working on community projects
- Training – an extensive range of courses to develop personal or work-related skills
Anyone in Jersey looking for work, with an Entitled for Work status, is encouraged to contact Back to
Work in the first instance, at email@example.com, to access immediate help.
The Back to Work team would also like to hear from any businesses who can provide work experience
for those currently seeking employment. Financial incentives continue to be available for employers
when vacancies are filled.
Assistant Minister for Social Security, Deputy Malcolm Ferey, said: “The number of people who are
actively seeking work remains at a steady low-level and this continues to bode well for anyone who
is looking for employment.
“There are opportunities for anyone who wants to get into the workplace, and I would like to
remind people that the Back to Work Team can assist with creating a CV, developing skills and
building confidence when preparing for an interview, so please do take advantage of what the
team at Eagle House has to offer.”
