A new employment programme has recently been launched to support job seekers. 

Job Entry Targeted Support (JETS), is backed by a £238 million investment and is dedicated to supporting those left jobless due to Covid-19.

Targeting those out of work for three months, JETS will see the Department for Work and Pensions ramp up support for claimants to ensure those put forward for the scheme have access to tailored, flexible support to quickly get back into employment.

The new programme will see a number of providers offer a range of help, including specialist advice on how people can move into growing sectors, as well as CV and interview coaching.

The programme will also give job hunters the boost they need to return to employment through an agreed action plan with their personal Work Coach, peer support and opportunities to build their skills.

The programme will be live on 19 October 2020 for Hertfordshire.
