Jersey Employment Trust's Service Charter sets out the nature and quality of service that you can expect from us at JET whether you are a service user, a supportive employer or partnership agency.
Below you will find the Charter, which includes our various policies. This outlines what you can expect from JET as a service and what we expect from you, the client.
Equality and Diversity
The Trust seeks to promote equality of opportunity and treatment for all persons in relation to all of its activities, such as employment training and employment support for service users, employment of JET staff, and liaison with employers and other agencies. We will accommodate diversity, ensuring our workforce and user groups represent and reflect the community in Jersey.
As Jersey is following a phased approach in implementing protected characteristics of the Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013 over a number of years, the Trust has taken the decision to adhere to the spirit of UK legislation and guidance on best practice; this is reflected in JET’s own Equality and Diversity Policy.
It is important for us to continually measure and evaluate our performance to ensure we meet the best possible service standards.
We will measure our performance through:
- Evaluating and monitoring our services in relation to the rights set out in the Service Charter
- Working with user groups to ensure we monitor our performance
This charter has been developed in partnership with service users, staff and partner agencies. JET uses active risk management throughout the company and operations. The charter will be reviewed every 2 years. Other JET policies to refer to include:
Data Protection Policies
Equality and Diversity
Whistle Blowing Policy
ICT Client Policy
Health and Safety
