Authored by States of Jersey and published on 17 April 2018.


On 31 March 2018 the non-seasonally adjusted Actively Seeking Work (ASW) total was 910. How many of these people ASW are ex-offender and / or have a criminal record?

The total number of long-term ASW (registered for more than twelve months) was 210. How many of these people ASW are ex-offender and / or have a criminal record?

Please state, by gender, the total number of ex-offenders who were ASW in 2015, 2016,2017?

Please state, by gender, the number of ex-offenders who found employment in 2015, 2016, 2017?

Please state, by gender, the number of ex-offenders were unemployed in 2015, 2016, 2017 and currently 2018?

Please state the reasons identified for unemployment in ex-offenders? eg did not have appropriate skills, employers unwilling to employ people with specific offences.

Where possible, cross reference then above information with UK and Europe-wide data. Please state by offence, percentage success in seeking work in ex-offenders.


Social Security does not systematically collect, record and report on the number of ASW jobseekers who are ex-offenders and / or have a criminal record.

There is no requirement mandating anyone who registers as a jobseeker to supply this information. However, the department works closely with the Prison to support those prison leavers who have statutory monitoring requirements under Jersey Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (JMAPPA). This means, as with all States departments, we are required to monitor and support those leaving prison who may be a risk to public protection.
