Actively seeking work figures released

12 July 2023

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 advisors
  • 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, 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.”
