Job Entry Targeted Support (JETS)

The Job Entry Targeted Support Programme (JETS) is the new Government-funded employability programme in response to COVID-19.

JETS provides fast-paced continuous support to jobseekers for a maximum of six months, with an aim to support people back into work quickly.

A key element to JETS is its localised approach, integrating with specialist partners to offer sector based support and skills development.

Who can join JETS?


  • Working age (18+) jobseekers motivated to find work immediately
  • In receipt of benefits (UC Intensive Work Search Regime (IWSR) or new-style Jobseeker’s Allowance) for at least 13 weeks
  • With the right to reside and enter employment in England or Wales
  • Who would benefit from light-touch employability support including CV writing, job searching, interview technique, reviewing transferable skills, and confidence building

Please note that referral to JETS is via a JobCentre Plus Work Coach.
