Recently e-JAM has had many requests from the US and UK for Healthcare workers, mainly RNs and Practical Nurses.
In the UK, the recent Brexit development has resulted in an extreme shortage of nurses and other healthcare workers. As an English-speaking country, they are desirous of employing Jamaican workers to assist with the demand for carers to service the ever-increasing senior population.
e-JAM has recently entered into partnership with a licensed healthcare provider, who is in contract with the NHS (UK Govt.), to provide various categories of nurses including senior care practitioners to service seniors in their homes.
We are seeking experienced RNs and Practical Nurses interested in working in the UK.
Selected candidates will be qualified under the Health & Care Visa Program and considered a Skilled Worker, with a job offer contract for three years. As a skilled worker you are entitled to work and stay in the UK for up to 60 months; leave and re-enter; study; bring your family as dependents and apply to stay longer. After working continuously in the UK for five years, you will be eligible to apply for settlement visa. The employer has decided to cover a large portion of the expenses, including airfare, with the hope that candidates will commit to at least two years of their contract. Since the job includes home visits, a company car will also be provided.
e-JAM is fully licensed by the Ministry of Labour for all employment activities, including foreign recruitment and placements. Over the years we have partnered with reliable and reputable foreign agents and employers in placing workers under the USA J1 and H-2B Programs; seasonal and skilled workers in Canada and under the Skilled category in the UK.

Whether you were job hunting before the Coronavirus Pandemic, or recently lost your job because of it, one thing is clear: Getting hired now isn’t going to be easy. Instead of getting frustrated, start Thinking Outside the Box and get creative. As mentioned in our previous blog, start investing in yourself.
This is a follow up to our recent blog https://ejamjobs.com/prepare-for-your-job-search-during-covid-19.html
Take advantage of this downtime by preparing.
Employers search our website and download resumes of qualified candidates; having an updated resume on our website is crucial in getting an interview. As mentioned in our earlier blog - we will be deleting all resume and profiles that are incomplete.
1. We can’t stress enough how important it is to update your resume. Many profiles we review are not updated and we have no idea what you do and the type of job you are after. This downtime is perfect for updating your resume and profile.
2. Clean up your social media pages and get rid of content you would not want a potential Employer to see. If you are a very social person, it might be a good idea to make your profile private.
3. Consider learning new skills, or enrolling in an online course to sharpen your current skill(s).
4. Have you considered doing part time, remote, freelance, or temporary work?
5. Apply only for jobs you are qualified for.
Remain Competitive and Consistent.
Not every industry slows, or closes down in an economic downturn. Many people are still getting hired; the market is just more competitive. The key is to identify the current needs of the changed market, match them with your skills, and don’t give up!
We anticipate local job openings for the following positions:
- Delivery Workers
- Customer service
- Healthcare Workers
- Grocery store and Warehouse Workers
- Package Handlers
- Security Guards
The outcome of this COVID-19 will bring forth major changes to the work work and possibly shift the way business operates.
It is no longer business as usual.
