Our employment program recruits, screens and places qualified candidates throughout the greater Jacksonville area. In addition, we provide training and post-employment support to ensure job retention. Our staffing services are available at no charge to your company.
For over 25 years, Catholic Charities has provided a variety of critical services to Jacksonville’s immigrant community, including legal immigration services, case management and employment assistance. Our clients are legal immigrants that are thoroughly screened by Homeland Security, and given the status of refugee, asylee, or parolee due to the fact that they have fled their home country in fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality or membership in a social or political group.
Knowing your company’s core business allows us to prescreen applicants for your company. We provide the link between your business and the potential employee.
