Rejected petition Remove five years in the Island as an employment requirement.

As an owner of a small business, we have been struggling for over a year to find people with the required skills to work for us. The majority of applicants do not match five years residency requirement.

More details

Positions have been advertised on Facebook and Jobs in Jersey websites. We’ve received over sixty applications; only five matched the five-year requirements. Three out of these did not even turn up for the interview. Two others' experience was not good enough for us to offer them jobs. We cannot grow our business and recover from Covid, still affecting our business revenue. We need the Government to allow us to employ people without five years residency and open Jersey's borders for a new working force from Europe.
