JETS

Job Entry Targeted Support

The Job Entry Targeted Support (JETS) scheme is part of the UK Government’s £2 billion ‘Plan for Jobs’ programme and is designed to help jobseekers who are recently unemployed and need some extra support to find work, particularly those individuals who’ve been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The scheme offers support for up to six months and aims to have jobseekers back in employment or self-employment within that timeframe.
Participants will have a dedicated employment advisor who will provide advice, guidance and support through a range of workshops, such as helping to update a CV, interview coaching and identifying transferable skills to empower jobseekers to seek sustainable employment in growing sectors.

Who is JETS for?

To be eligible, participants must:
  • Be working age (18 years old to state pension age)
  • Be in receipt of Universal Credit, All Work Related Requirements (AWRR) or New Style Jobseekers Allowance
  • Have been unemployed and in receipt of one of the above benefits for at least 13 weeks
  • Be motivated to find work and require light-touch employment support

What does the JETS scheme offer?

  • Participants will receive light-touch, flexible and online support for six months from our Recruitment Advisors
  • Information, advice and guidance on identifying transferable skills and matching these to current vacancies
  • Support from trained advisors and coaches to develop employability skills including CV development, making effective job application and interview techniques
  • Targeted support to develop presentation and communication skills
  • Access to self-employment support for those who want to explore running their own business
