Lowest Unemployment Levels For Eight Years
11th January 2018
Unemployment in Jersey is at an 8 year low.
950 islanders are currently looking for work – 330 fewer than in December 2016 and the lowest number since December 2010.
The Back to Work team helped 1,800 jobseekers get jobs last year.
More than half are now employed in the retail, hospitality, construction or finance industries.

Extra support was also offered to parents with nursery-age children and people with long-term health problems.
Social Security says paid-training and skills-building sessions have helped boost the numbers getting into work, and off benefits.
