The employment service at JET has been very busy this year and despite higher unemployment on the island has supported a number of candidates into both full-time and part-time positions. Our records show that in 2012 a total of 166 jobs were supported by us with 75 of those jobs being new in 2012. Work experience also plays a big role in the development process and a total of 115 placements were supported by us this year. A big thank-you to all those who have supported JET throughout the last 12 months.
As in all development, training features high on the agenda and whilst continuing to provide our own in-house training we have been very fortunate this year to have access to external training providers for a variety of employment focused courses. To this end a number of people have gained qualifications in First Aid, Quickbooks, Health and Safety, Food and Hygiene, ECDL and Customer Service to name but a few.
